Code forwarded them to me.

http://swracecars.com/store/02-07-FORD-EXPLORER---MOUNTAINEER-10-POINT-ROLL-CAGE-OSCARItem_36=11-3588.aspx

That link goes to one for an 02-07; however, the PDF's I attached are for 'a 93 Explorer.'

Attached are drawings of the roll cage and family bar for a ’93 Explorer.

Yeah, and they have DOM and chromoly options, as well as around the dash vs. behind dash (which I would prefer the latter).

Don't waste money on the chromoly, it's some good stuff for sure, but not regular steel...I'm sure this company knows what they're doing on the fab side, but on the install it can't just be welded in and forgotten. If the welds were done too hot they'll have to be heat treated, and really, should be regardless to relieve stress and still winds up being brittle.... Which a lot of ppl say they've never seen cracks/fatigue issues but most things using chromoly are measured in seasons, they're not life long vehicles....The weight savings is roughly 30% between equivalent cly and ms, even with a full 12pt cage that's not alot less weight unless your building a 6 sec car, but a whole lot more headaches and money.....

just my 2 cents but I wouldn't use cly unless it was class required or free, not my truck tho, and not my call.
