I trimmed the corner to match the flare. Saves a little weight as well. Can't believe how tuff this 6061 is. I painted underneath of the flare with it bolted on. This gave me an exact pattern of where everything lined up. I would have cut higher , but this is as high a the inner fender well goes.

Also, I used some scrap from the wheel opening to make a patch for the rocker section and got that welded in

As you may have noticed, the old cage is gone. Time to protect the kids.

image-1880712678.jpg

The old cage consisted of a stock '90 B and C pillar. OR Fab front kit with a dash bar added. And a custom sub frame that the seats mounted to. I have to decide if I will cut out the seat subframe or build a new one.

are you going to roll/bend over the sharp edge in the wheel opening or do you hit the stops before contact? just wondering I cut up a nice set of boggers on one obstacle once..i thought I could never hit my tires but I was wrong...I found out the hard way that full stuff in driveway much different that when inertia is involved..i didn't factor in body flex as well as the impact force, but judging from your build quality you prolly got this covered...your build and a couple of others have me inspired for my next build...it will prolly be an xj but im going to build it as if it were a regular jeep, while taking the fact that is a unibody in to heavy consideration...

I thought that's how it supposed to dope the center of ur tires. Haha. I think I have my bumps set pretty well. I can lower them if I need to.

Ok. So here is the Poison Spyder DIY YJ cage kit. The C pillar comes down to where the std length cage should come, which in this case is about the center of the rear axle. I will cut the tube on the inside of the curve just behind the B pillar. The rear hoop will attach here and help reinforce that area

So how do you hold the rear hoop, stand back and check for strait and level and then keep it there while you tack it in place by your self

image-24332542.jpg

Took me awhile to figure it out. Used the engine hoist to hold up the back of it. Worked out really well

Decided to cut out the old sub frame and graft it in. Too much trouble to build a new one around the center console etc. Plus, it already bolts through the body supports under the seats

Had to add about 12" of tube to the C pillar to get it all the way back to the end of the tub. I cut the tube beside the fuel cell and put a sleeve inside to help reinforce as well as keep it strait. I will also add a tube across the fuel cell here to protect it and give me a place to attach the back of the kids car seats
