You could always buy 2 FN's and put them together like Night has done. :)
Each cage is 36" long, 24" deep and 4' tall.

no no no no i would never house the two together 1 the rat's might chew on the iguana and 2 the iguana might whip the rat with it's tail and 3 the rat's might die because the temp's in the cage would be to hot for rat's

A guy I work with kept his in a large bird cage (think macaw sized), of course it also had free run of the house.

My uncle custom made one, 2x4 and some kind of wire. It doesn't have to be small just strong for if/when they climb up the wall

Iguanas are herbivores. They eat plants. Meat is bad for them and if they eat enough it can cause kidney problems and possible death. In cases were iguanas have eaten meat it was under extreme dietary stress or in times of famine. A well fed iguana will not eat a rat. A real concern is that a large iguana can do a lot of physical damage with its tail and claws.

maybe the iguana wouldn't eat the rats but the rats would surely take a chunk out of the iguana... rats like the taste of fresh meat & they wouldn't hesitate on eating the iguana that was in what they would consider their home space

Just to clarify, I was in no way recommending a rat and iguana live together. I was just saying the chances of an iguana eating a rat are slim to none

In poor nations were leprosy is common there were cases of toes just going missing at night. Finally a doctor figured out that rats had been chewing off numb digits while patients were sleeping
