not having a belt on doesn't feel right, like something is missing. Unless of course I'm in an old farm truck......

and to think, the crash scores for the tj's are pretty good.

seatbelts are important on AND off the road

My '93 XJ... see shape of my head in the glass. guy pulled out from a stopsign and I T-boned him about 45 mph...
October, 1996.

By strange coincidence, this happened on the very last day I didn't wear a seatbelt...
I've worn one every day since...

it looks to me as if the car ran off the road of course rolled and came to an abrupt stop on something, maybe a tree or barrier. There is a lot of dirt in the hood and grill area.

Bolt on roll cages are a great second defense and you can never go wrong with extra protection, but don't think for a second that you are at all invincible or even that much more safe with a roll cage. Forces like that will destroy and shred any piece of metal you put in its path.

I added the front half cage to my existing factory rollbar last weekend. The windshield frame offers zero roll over protection. Mine came out a wrecked TJ in a local salvage yard and in excellent shape. As an extra precaution a friend of mine cleaned up and improved all the welds before I installed it.

And yes I am a firm believer in seatbelts.

Great thread. I used to take a lot of crap from my friends for not driving until everyone was wearing their seatbelts. I later changed that and would remind them to buckle up then accelerate to 15mph and slam on the breaks. It didn't take too many times before they learned to buckle up.

I've been researching and saving pictures from various TJ/CJ/YJ wrecks for years. Which was one of my motivations for my choice of an aftermarket roll cage. Here's more crashed TJs I've collected from this forum and Pirate4x4, among other sources:

In all the Jeeps posted above, including the red one from the OP is the windshield collapses into the passenger compartment. The B-pillar stays fairly intact, but the windshield bars fold and buckle.

Even adding a Rockhard 4x4 cage to the stock bars provides a noticeable increase in support:


The bad thing about adding lots of armor like the Jeep in the OP's post, especially front tube fenders, is they transmit significant amounts of stress directly to the passengers/tub.
