a guy in my club has an awesome cage in his TJ, but his site is down and i can not find any decent pics of it. It is a through the dash custom cage. I would never trust one of the bolt to the dash tj cages

How much extra vibration do you really pic up with rigid tie ins versus the bushing type? I've seen guys just add another, what looks like another body mount support and weld it to the frame with an additional body bushing(puck). Do these hold up? Probably not in a multiple roll situation right?
