Roll cage is in...

Well, to lift my spirit I installed the MORE front cage today. It was somewhat a pain as some fitment and adjustment was needed. Nothing that a couple of rollowers won't fix though... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] It's pretty stout but I'll fab up a dash tie-in piece for it that should really help to distribute the forces. I'll also make a center bar and some frame tie-in pieces later.

Right awn!!!
I believe the install of the chage says more about your wheelin intentions and tendencies than any other modification. It says, I know this is a dangerouse sport, and I respect that. It says I will do what it takes, to keep anyone in my rig out of harms way.
Very good start, bolster the design with your stated ideas.
Afterall, you need to keep yourself safe, live a long healthy life, and teach your kids about the enjoyement of Jeep lifestyle.
Good work.

Re: Roll cage is in...

Btw, the "fitment" involved bending the passanger side main tube into a sharper angle cuz it wouldn't install otherwise. To do this I found a suitable double tree growing in my backyard to use as a mandrel, jammed the bar in there, put a tow strap on it, threw the rig in 4low and snatch-bent the sucker! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] This was the only way to make it bend as the two of us tried it with all our weights and it wouldn't budge.
