Jeremy,

you now have my brain working with ideas, and, here, all this time, I thought I was more or less finished with mods to my CJ...nice work...

I know you mentioned that you sold your hardtop but does anyone know if this kit will fit under a factory hardtop and hard doors? Up here in the NW I cant live without my hardtop. Thanks

I know this is an old thread but I have a question. Did you use the YJ roll bar part (bolt on) that connected the YJ side bars to the sport bar? I'm about to do the OR Fab kit and I'm considering using these just to line up the bars before I weld them.

I used the YJ family roll bar....Direct bolt-on to the CJ tub (you have to enlarge 2 holes and that was it.

The ORF sport cage forward bars worked perfect. If you are interested in saving some substantial money on this kit, I manufacture a very similar ORF dash tie-in kit to ORF....but at 90% cheaper! lol.

The ORF kit is nice, but very expensive for what you get. You can get the DOM and bend it up for under $100...assuming you have access to a bender.

Check the link to HandenFab in my signature.

Jatepper, what powder coater did you use in Tucson? I am up in Oro Valley and am looking for one...

Also, did the Or Fab front cage 'top side arms' line up with the bolt on nubbie on the YJ family bar main hoop? Could one just drill a hole in the Or Fab tube and bolt it onto the nubbie?
Thanks!

Drespecki,

I used to use Perfection Industrial Finishing. Now I sent most of my stuff to Anderson Painting. Either one you choose, they both do good work. Anderson just has a quicker turnaround, but they are also a little more expensive. They are on Country Club just north of Valencia.

Yes, the bolt holes on the main hoop are pretty much exactly where the forward bars mount to. I just left the holes there and was going to get a little plug or something, but never got around to it. You can just remove the bolt and the "nubbie" (think that is the technical word for it... nice job) will come off.

You are more then welcome to come by and take a look at the cage any time you want. Just shoot me a PM with your contact info if you want to arrange something.

Jeremy
