OT - Ya got a YJ cage laying around? 1993-1995?

All:

I lost the auction on ebay today, so I come seeking from those who've installed custom cages. I'm needing to upgrade the roll bar in my 1987 YJ with one from a later model. Anyone got a 93-95 roll bar laying around? I got the smittybilt front cage to weld in, but decided to wait until I got the right roll bar.

I will gladly pay shipping anywhere in the U.S.

Thanks,
Paul Thelen

Have you checked with local pick and pull junkyards? I know there are a few people on this board who have gotten a lot of parts like that. If you see a Jeep sitting in a yard, ask if you can buy the cage. If they are the kind of yard that likes profits they'll probly sell it. Just an idea.

I've spent many an hour walking the yards around here. There's one in Sacramento (1.5 hrs.) who'll sell it to me for $250, but that's a little/lot high for me right now. The only SWB jeep I've found in any of the local yards has been a postal someone stripped. If you happen to hit your local yard in the snow...let me know what they charge. Shipping from WI with CCX was gonna run me $100.

Have you test fitted the Smittybilt front hoop? How does it fit? Pretty good? How will it attach to the main hoop since it has stubs sticking out that the windshield bars attach to.

Hey I`m in Folsom right by Sacramento..

In a couple months I`ll have the cage out of my 93 YJ to get rid of ... It just was painted yellow too.. color under it is blue...

I played around with it a couple months ago. Looks like the front spreaders will go over the stub pieces on the factory cage. The only thing I plan on doing to the unit is to give a slight extra bend to move the feet out as far as possible and move the down tubes as forward and closer to the dash. I'm not a small person, so I need all the room I can get through the door.
