91 jeep half roll cage

I just bought a 91jeep wrangler.this is my first jeep and the roll cage only covers the front . I have a kid and need to extend the cage what is the best and cheapest way to go. Also it kinda bogs down at about 60 mph. The jeep only has 96xxx miles on it. If their is any easy fixes It would help thanx

Regarding the roll cage - look for a 92-95 YJ roll cage or install an aftermarket full roll cage.

Fill out your profile with your vehicle info. From there the forum can help you with the bogging issue.

unfortunately the stock "family cage" really doesnt cover the heads of the rear occupants. its made to look like it does. with the low back rear seat i found both inadequate. if you really want to do something worthwhile have a shop build a back half of a cage. you can leave the front half as is. i made the rear uprights a 1/4" from the rear of the tub.

Fratis- I like that cage. How much of it is stock and what did you have fabricated? Any more pictures?

the main "B" hoop is the only stock part. the rear slanting bars were removed.

I carefully cut off the rear hoops on a TJ family cage. Then welded them to my sport cage and added a piece over the rear seat. I plan to gusset it and add to the front with the A pillar going all the way to the floor and tying it all into the frame. Some day soon.

Your jeep bogs down at speed because its a 4 cylinder and you have one of the least aerodynamic vehicles ever built.
