    To support the new hood contraption i suggest hydraulic actuator, put some on the hood as well as pulling those back can be a kick in the back

    Nice brush guard bit it ain't no roll over protection my friend. You will end up flat as a pancake without any triangulation or gusseting let alone much better chassis mounting points. Oh, and if you wanna build a bullbar you find an Aussie to do a real one not those pissy little brush guards you guys use.

    I didn't see any triangular connections to route or divide stress and force... Especially around the cab. If it rolls like that, it'll be a death trap! It will twist and collapse and if you survive, cutting you out is going to take forever... (trust me, I know a thing or two about those things, after being stuck for over an hour in a strong frame car, 45 minutes of which was firefighters cutting the wreckage open.) You NEED trapeze and triangle shapes... Think back to the roll cage of the ultra4

    If you're seriously planning on plowing through big stuff, you NEED to armor plate the bottom! I don't know WHY it isn't already done, but it needs to be done, so that nothing can grab the front differential, or the shocks, or whatever, like whistling keeps doing when he rips his truck apart.

    You'll also need a 'kick-bar' I think they call it, in front of each front tire, so that any massive branches get shoved beneth the front tires, instead of wedging up in the wheel well and ripping the tire off. It basically does the same thing a cattle guard does, but for the tire.

    to raise and low it look at electric cylinders, Cat and other big machine companies use them for raising huge hoods and belly pans on d8 dozers and such, they will raise and lower them, you can also look at cab jacks like they use on Mack and other cab over trucks
