Hey all, I'm new to the jeep world and new on JF, so bare with me please. This 2002 TJ will be my first jeep, and I plan on keeping the Project Pandora thread alive, because it's the right thing to do and I have gotten a lot of requests. The jeep should arrive at the end of this week or beginning of next week, so as you can tell I'm pretty excited as I don't even have the jeep or seen it in real life. By the pics and talking to the owner Brian, known as Apex on here, I can tell this is gonna be a sweet build. I am open to a lot of ideas and can make a lot of them come true with my fab abilities. I am currently stationed at Fort Bliss, Tx. So yes I'm in the Army and might not have as much time as most people on here. I'm excited to get the jeep and chat with y'all on here. Here's a few pics of the jeep...
Good on you for wanting a cage. It will make your rig a lot safer both on and offroad. Id shy away from cages that have the A pillar mounts that bolt to the door/dash lip like genrights. Their kit is a super nice setup and their quality is good but I just cant see doing all that work and relying on flimsy sheet metal to support the A pillar. Check out Poly Performance and Koz's kits that run down through the dash. I havent personally seen Genright's kit so they may have something in the design to address this, but I have seen 3 other brand's cages that mount like this and I wouldn't run a single on of them.
KOZ is getting my business after seeing their kit and helping put one together...plus the price
I will say that a friend had his PSC full cage take FOREVER to get shipped to him...like several months. Supposedly that issue in their company has been addressed though. Both are nice cages and should have good fit and finish. Have you seen the rollover thread? Its got tons of pics of jeeps with no cages vs jeeps with various cages. Im not a fan of the A pillar in those but to each their own. If youre scared of cutting the dash, its a snap. If you just like those cages then
