Sport cage or complete replacement?

Looking for suggestions on sport vs replacement cages. Arguments for and against each. Pics if you got them. I eventually want to get some Baja seats and 5 point harnesses as well.

I kept the B-pillar portion of the original stock sport cage and built the rest at a friends house over a weekend.

We designed the cage using BendTech EZ-3D software. I borrowed an electric/hydraulic bender and a tube notcher.

I have since redid some of the work.

My YJ has went through several upgrades since the cage work, but you get the idea.

factory b pillar is a goofy size and goofy shape. It also has that odd crimp near the floor plate.
You can build off the stock cage to save a little money, but you arent starting with the best, and you have to make compromises to use it.

I chose to scrap it all together and build my own. Still not done but main shape is there.

Ruined a perfectly good jeep.
