Cage looks great! Thats exactly what I want to do. And it fits well with frameless top, since you went custom with the rear additions?

Yep, all the rear tube is custom, the front is Poly's kit (very nice kit I should add )

Looks good. Looks like the A pillar is really far to the edge of the dash. How was it getting it down to the floor? Also I don't know if you use your back seat but I am hesitant to do the diagonals in the rear because I think it may be a safety concern for rear passengers heads banging off it in an incident. Am I over thinking it?

Poly's A-pillars are two pieces and sleeved right where the dash bar ties in (excellent design IMO). It allows you to change the planes of the two bends in the a-pillar and get it to fit just right, after the tube goes through the dash and clears the HVAC vents it slants back inward slightly to hit the floor plate. I forgot to take a pic of the floor plate and frame tie-ins but Lu might have some (he's making the drive back to CT right now).

As for the rear seat, he wanted to keep the option of a rear seat in the future when he has kids but doesn't use one currently. I'll let him expand upon that farther if he wants. There should be adequate head room for small children in the back seat and once they are grown up they can buy there own jeeps
