Well, I wanted to buy the CAGE radius arms for my truck BUT... they went out of business. The reason why I bring up the arms is because they are tubular arms and the above shock loops wouldn't mount right on them.

They do look like they are mounted on stock Dana 44 radius arms.

Well yes and no... The people that owned Cage went out of business, but they people who actually did the fabbing opened a new business... It's called Bloody Knuckle Garage.... Here is an e-mail from Jim that I saw on another website..

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECT FROM JIM..........

Hi all,



I am sure many of you are wondering what is going on here in NW Oregon. Well, first the owners of CAGE Offroad Products decided to close the doors some time back. Why, lots of reasons from illness in the family, to the band dissolving and probably many other things I don’t know of. That has put me in a bit of a decision making position. I know many of you thought I was the main owner of CAGE since I was the one most people spoke with but I was an employee as was my wife, eldest son and daughter. We’ve had some adjustments to make to say the least.



The good is that I own all the designs as well as the fabrication equipment so future fabrication is not a problem. The plan is to start our own business however it is going to take me a bit to get started. I do have many of the main Bronco items (coils, leafs, radius arms, dual shock mounts, solid axle swap parts, etc) already in stock so if you have a need let me know. Installation, custom fab, drivetrain swaps yeah all that in the new biz.



So as you can see we’ve had a busy Fall/Winter! We will have a new web site up soon along with contact info. New site is BloodyKnuckleGarage.com so of course the name of the new business is Bloody Knuckle Garage. My new email is jim@bloodyknucklegarage.com



Hope everyone has a Happy New Year!



Jim Cole

Yeah sent "JIM" an email about 3 weeks ago now and no reply yet... their site still isnt even up yet... not even a coming soon page... nothing! Doesnt seem like they will last long by what I see... if they even get off the ground.

Sad because they had good products, overpriced though and Im sure that helped in thier going out of business. Anyway thanks for posting the info dude!

Well that sucks, arms are only worth 700 dollars that come with the weld in brackets.
So to pay 800 dollars for something not even supported and sold for less when they
were still in business!

I am actually going to offer him 400 for the arms and 100 for the loops and explain why.
Are you close to him if he bites?
