Cage questions

Working on rebuilding the CJ at the moment and want to tie the cage to the frame. Need the best options for strength fab wont be a problem as the father in-law (professional welder) will be helping me. We don't have a bender or access to one so want to limit the bends needed because of cost.

I also need to extend the cage height. For the height would I be able to just cut it where I want to extend put a insert in it then weld it back?

Genrite has a really nice kit that you can purchase with a tie in kit for the frame

Dom bushings from barnes4x4 on every spot that connects to the cage. A square plate with 3-4 holes thru the floor to sandwich the body between the 2 plates. 2 tabs off the square plate to bolt the Dom bushing to and then tube from that to the frame. Should be able to do it without any bends. If you have sliders that are connected to the frame then just connect the tie ins to that.
