For what they are, stock roll bars are good for the usual wheeling. A roll cage is what you need if you're crazy enough to want to roll...?
Nobody ever wants to roll or plans to roll. But bad things happen. I've had a few too many close calls in my day to want to trust the stock roll bar personally. At TDS this past year I almost rolled twice in a matter of about 2 minutes. Scary enough to make me want to upgrade. Imalso had this little flop incident also at TDS a few years back. Whole jeep was resting on the roll bar. Luckily it was a gentle flop. But still.
And no I didn't plan on that happening. A buddy rolled into camp round midnight and said he wanted to do a quick shake down since he had just rebuilt his transfer case. I had found that notch a few hundred yards from camp that afternoon, so we went for a quick run. That was the result. We both got stuck. Had to hoof it back to camp to wake someone else up to come yank us out
