Looks Great! I like that you kept the rear seat area enclosed. Good looking ride!

Just a thought for another sweet mod. Fab some seat mount brackets to do a set of buckets in the rear. The additional seat heigth with the headrest may save the rear seat passengers from a headache, and keep the rear glass from breaking when someones noggin bounces off of it on the trail.

It does, because we have a unibody, but it shouldnt weaken it by too much. But you can compensate the weakness with a cage, which is what Crashzx6r is doing
