My cage would be to secure the chop top. Little nervous about too much flexing like this. New Cage should be in soon. New shop, Hellbent could not get me in or call me back.

Other than a cage what structural changes or additions have you added to help maintain the integrity of your jeep.

I really like what you have done to your grand, looks great.

You can see the Dpillar top has been welded to just behind the Cpillar. It really solidified the roof. I can grab the Dpillar to help me up or if you are in the back standing you can grab it and shake the jeep back and forth pretty wildly and it seems good. I also put the hatch back in and that solidified the rear quarters. I used the nuts that are welded into the hatch to space it correctly from the body and then built spacers and drilled a hole in the dpillar and ran a bolt though it and the homemade spacers and it lined up well. And it is latched to the original location.
Think that I am going to have to hold off on Hannibal rocks. Which is a bummer since it is not open all the time. Once that cage is in(6pt or 10 pt) then Im game.

Tbick great looking rig, check out Izzy's Custom Cages, they are usually booked about 6 weeks out but you never know they may have an opening, but they do great work. had them put the cage in my race car, top notch

I'm in Chesterfield. Hellbent has worked on my jeep a few times. I have had good experience with them. They are about to do a regear for me. Going from a 3.07 to a 4.10. I have 31" tires and hope it makes a big difference.

I guess I should know that, but I always negotiate the price based upon what I want done, not how long it will take. Wish I could be more helpful.

They got my jeep now and I did the same got a finished price. They actually gave me a discount since I have had to wait. The guys are great and if you checkout the projects in the shop you will quickly get confidence in their work. I cant wait to get my grand with the cage in it. Although, seeing my jeep on 34s with all their monster trucks makes mine look tiny. Good thing I got a front LA upgrade on the way and 7 in springs. Then I can argue with the state about height instead of windows. Atleast, I have 2 yrs now till that comes. Might have to put on Stock tires to get the bumper at 29 in

Hellbent does have monster machines they work on. Makes my jeep look puny. Would be fun to watch them work on those big jeeps, trucks, off road rigs.
