This is probably going to sound like a really dumb question but searching isn't really giving me what I'm looking for. For all of those with interior cages how did you tie the mounts into the unibody? All I'm finding is plates welded to the floor but that can't be all. Pictures of your mounting points would be great

Plates are generally welded or bolted to the floor then there's another plate on the bottom side of the floor. Most folks brace to the frame from the plate under the floor.

Both of those^ then do something similar to the roof if you have a halo above the roof.
