Is it just my eyes or is the lift welded to the frame?

I think it's your eyes. It looks like the lift has attachments with welded flanges, and the frame is resting on the flanges.

Cage looks cool, but looks like it would flatten you like a pancake the first time you went over.

?????? the cage is as strong as they come. There are no pics posted in which you can even see the cage beside the build up pic. There is about 10 hours of tube work after that pic was taken of the main hoop.
