T&J's males a pre-bent cage(heard it fits and goes together really well):
T and J Performance Center 1002 W. Collins, Orange, CA, 91701 714-633-0991

Be careful, just a main hoop with out supports is asking for trouble!

Blah blah blah blah.

Nice Kit but I'm with halfleft. $700 plus options and $150 shipping is out of my budget. Any others out there.

Rusty's makes a main hoop but you would need to modify it somewhat to fit your harnesses and as Skullver said, you are deffinately going to want some diagonal supports, expecially if your seatbelts are attached to the cage.

That Rusty's Roll bar is such a joke. I hope they get sued to teach them a lesson about putting out crappy products. That note at the bottom of the page should say "this bar is for show and in no way will protect you in the event of a rollover. Instead it will punch through the floor and leave you wondering why you spend $220 on a piece of bent metal."

to be honest, you would be better off with no cage and the stock belts if you don't want to do it right. A poorly designed cage(much less an unsupported b-pillar) can be much more dangerous than stock form.

Blah blah blah blah.

i was just looking at the rustys bar and yeah thats a joke, i would like a cage and like i said not to concerned about rolling it i dont wheel it that hard it is my daily driver, i have a yj for the hard core stuff, that i dont care if i flip it put it back on its wheels and go, but i was looking at the rock hard 4x4 bolt in cage, very non intrusive, a little pricey , but i like how its kept nice and tucked in the front to be out of my way, im thinking that the route im gonna go, any opinions on that cage

never been a fan of bolt in cages, a cage should also add some structure to the unibody IMO. You could get a custom cab cage for the price of that rockhard, or pay somebody to weld in the T&Js cage and have a much better end product. Your money I guess, only injecting my opinion for what it is worth.
