Cage Chop: 4.25" in back and 0" in the front
Like the title says, we did the cage chop on my 2018 T4 and we only took 4.25" off the back and 0" off the front. I bought my bungs (cage/tube inserts) from Mike LaFour with WTF-Offroad and apparel. Thanks again Mike!! We matched the middle vertical bar to the rest of it and simply cut on the weld near the top where it meets the bracket and re-welded it back to the same place once we found our height. I ordered (4) of the bungs (cage/tube inserts) and only used (2) of them.
Im really happy with the way it looks. We sprayed some black brake caliper spray on the welds followed by "rust-oleum textured black" which was the perfect match! I wanted to do the chop so i could fit it in my enclosed trailer without having to take the rear tires on and off every time i wanted to trailer it. This was the solution and i love it. Please let me know what everyone thinks or if they need help along the way. I waited almost a year before i pulled the trigger on this. Wish i would've done this sooner.
