Anyone useing the front rollcage from Smittybilt?

Wondering if anyone outhere is using this front cage. Are the usual problems there (e-brake and window crank.How about leg room)?
I will be welding it to the frame and anchor it to the existing rollbar. Just want to know what others that have this one, think about it and what I should change before the final install

Thanks as always

I've had one since last summer. No problem with the e-brake, I had to move my glove box door over about a half inch. No restriction on leg room. Fit very well.

I can get to the e brake, but its really tight. I also cut down the window cranks so I can open the windows without having to open the door first. As far as welding it to the frame, you will have to make some angled tubing or brackets, since the front hoop is 4 to 6 inches outside the frame rails. (assuming this is all going to be done on a CJ-7)
