Im going to have sub frames installed,im thinking the 6 point cage should help too...and better torque boxes installed..welded in..

And reinforce the four corners of your frame ...

What do you mean how would they do that?

What I do is turn the inside 90* "edge" where two ends of your frame meet at a point into the base of a triangle with some steel bar and my MIG welder.

IOW there are four corners of your ride's frame -- turn each "rectangle end" into an isosceles triangle ... make sense?  (This will greatly strengthen them)

Um, Fox Mustang. Different frame, there are no open box ends.

Honestly, its added unnessecery weight. Once you tie in the sub frames 90% of the time you are good. When you want to go faster, then you start adding more bars in certian areas for strength and safety. Even then, there usually isnt anything done to the 4 corners. Even when you get into the 25.x certs, you dont need bars going to the front.
