Is there a good way to add diagonals to the B pillar when re-using the stock hoop in a TJ? The only way I can see it happening is with big bends or tieing in a few inches from the node.. Neither of which seem ideal..

I've seen one cage with the big bends in the X bars. It also ran a straight bar to the "apex" of the X bars down to the corners to keep them from folding. While not an ideal setup, it is probably the best option when retaining the stock pillar and using diagonals with the stock seat mounting position.

Front is a thru the dash kit from Koz Offroad.Kept the rear section so the Viking Fastback top would be sure to fit.Braced it with some 1.75 dom. I have 8 points to the floor now & hope to tie them to the frame,add some A to B pillar door bars,and tie the seats in this yr.
Oh yea add a new harness bar up to where it should be.

I've seen some isolation type cage / frame tie-ins before but can't seem to find them anywhere.

They look something like this, not sure if they were a home brew or if there is a manufacture for the parts.

Any help?






Well, I went ahead and made them myself:

Thanks dirtgrip, that's exactly what I'm looking for.
Started the front bar this afternoon.
Rebent my plates in the press to match the new floor work

dirtgrip, did / do you have any trouble with inspections giving you a hard time with the height of your dash bar?
I want to set mine above the dash pad, will net me 12.25" of clear view. ???

My dash bar is as low as you can go.It is barely off of the dash.No inspections in NM-I love the west.Good luck on your cage.

Ok, stealing someone elses pic from this thread, I think I'll probably do something like this with the x. It'll tie in a few inches behind the node, but I'll be gusseting. Too bad I need to keep the b pillar where it's at to keep the soft top functioning. I think it should still be fine.

That is my buddy's rig and it has been rolled a few times without any issues. The X not hitting the nodes has not been detrimental at all and make for a ton more head room.

Have a great day!!!

Ok, I know this thread is more dedicated towards custom fabbed cages and full replacements, but what does everyone think of the pre-fabbed stuff? In particular, I'm wondering about the Poison Spyder trail cage (the part that just goes over the front two seats), the bolt in style cages, etc.? For a majority of people, these seem to be more feasible (and more cost effective) cages to obtain.

Granted, I know that nothing will beat a complete new cage, but I would assume that even something like the PSC, TBT, etc. would be better than stock. I'm sure we've all seen the infamous roll with the TBT cage on Hells Revenge- that obviously took a beating. How are they in comparison as far as strength goes?

Well, here's my contribution. This comes from a combination of stuff I've been gleaning from Pirate mostly. I still have some more work, but you can see all the major stuff in this pic. The X will go just behind the B pillar - I'll be putting that in once the cage goes back in (welding to frame).



I'll be adding a few gussets and hip bars once I know what my seat situation is.

I'll post some more pics when its back in the jeep.



Tom
