Cage add ons?

I'm looking to gat a bit more protection.
I'm not a welder, but know a guy that could help me out.
What is the best front add on for full hard doors, hardtop, and ebrake accessability?
I drive this almost daily so these things are important.

There are always bolt on additions you can do. ORFab has a pretty solid kit but RockHard got my vote.

For e-brake accessibility the Genright stancions are going to be your best bet. I like the BTF add on kit.

what's your budget for this?

I use a RockHard bolt in sport cage, and it doesn't negatively affect any of the things you were concerned about.

the nice thing about the RockHard is that you can add things like this cross bar, harness bar, or frame tie ins, as the budget allows

if your budget is higher, and you want a really nice full cage kit then go with something like this one from GenRight

the downside to the RockHard is it's a bolt together cage and not as strong as the weld ins, but it's better than no cage at all
