Yes, everyone has seen Jim B.s awesome spotting that led to Tracy rolling down that rock chute in Moab. What most fail to see is the A pillar never takes a solid hit due to how close the walls are to the chute. The rig rolls sideways down hitting mostly on the hood and back of the rollbars at the end of the tub. The trail is curved enough at the bottom that you can lay a rig crossways pretty much and the top of the windshield won't touch. Unfortunately that video has been used to sell more dangerous crap than should be legal.

If you believe different than that, watch Matt's video, the low impact flop, how much that displaced the sides, and then compare the two. One tells the whole story, one does not.

Funny you mention that; I chose that color for the outside of the stripe when I pained mine. I love that color and wish I'd put more of it on my jeep. When I eventually get to doing the cage, I'm going to paint it that color. Grabber blue.

I think it would look sweet, I got the idea from monsta liner they have a color smurftastic or something along those lines and it looked killer inside the tub. I think it would look good with your white exterior.

I painted a bunch of engine parts today in that color as well. Fuel rail, front accessory bracket and a few other little parts. I know, it's almost as bad as having those gheigh neon headlight things, but they looked really rough and I didn't want to just paint them black.

Dude. How the eff could you possibly just know that? You might be the smartest cat I know. You're like Cliff Claven off of Cheers.

This. I swear, there is nothing that Andy doesn't know! Next time we get together we need to play "stump Andy", and I don't mean set Andy on top of a stump so he can look us in the eye, I mean we gotta come up with something that he doesn't know.

Oh wahhhhhh... I'd rather have that ORF sport cage over nothing that's for darn sure! Is it the best or optimal? Nope. Is it quite a bit better then those awesome OE spreader bars and a windshield frame? Yep... BTW, 95% of the jeep cages I see are pretty much a joke anyways and are only marginally better then what that cage does. Easy access is more important then actual strength and rigidity it seems to most people. Then again, what do I know? I don't own a jeep anymore and everything I learned is from what I read online! Oh and sweet name drops. They add a ton to your comment.
