Poison Spyder CJ7 cage

Anyone that has this weld in cage I have a few questions.

If you are in a light rollover does this bend the tub since it bolts to the tub itself? I have installed the same cage in a TJ but we haven't rolled that one over yet... haha

Just curious. I plan on welding this in sometime this winter....

Thanks

There is always a possibility of the tub folding when you are in a roll over situation. Most "roll cages" you buy are sold as a "sport cage" so that the manufacturer can be absolved of any liability in the event of serious injury/death. If you are concerned you can buy a frame tie in kit with your cage to help solidify the whole vehicle. I know GenRight and a couple other manufacturers make universal kits like this one http://www.genright.com/ProductInfo....ductid=GRC5500 They are pretty inexpensive and would be a great addition to any cage kit.

Anyone have pictures of how they mounted rear five point harness racing seats in place of the stock bench with a cage?

I’m wanting to replace both front seats with a safer seat as well as the back bench so all the people in the jeep can have good belts

I’m open to idea’s and suggestions!

Thanks

You could always do some tube clamps with a bar from side to side so that you could remove it later if you take the seat out.

Just an fyi, the poison spyder CJ7 cage wasnt meant for adults in the back. It does have limited headroom in the rear. I only ever felt comfortable with the kids in the back in 5 point harnesses. Would have never felt right with anyone over 5'.
