I agree, when I first saw that, I though how awsome it looked. After I looked at it for a bit, it didn't appear that it would take a decent roll too well. It's hard to say with the triangulation going right the bend in the b-pillar, it may work. All the stress at that point would be transfered into the diagonal bar behind the seats, going then into the floor support. I may be wrong, but that's my observation.

I agree, its a really bad design, already got the bends started so when if rolls it will just fail.

interesting theories between the break-away capsule idea vs the frame tie-in design. thoughts and opinions?

personally i will stick with my cage being solidly attached to the frame. Even if my cage is "cookie cutter" according to the geniuses that frequent phat jeeps offroad

I was goint to coment on those welds too. They look like hell. I can't believe PSC would have that kind of crap on there stuff unless it is just a cover pass to give it some kinda bling factor.

go and search on pirate for it. the shop forman got on a defended it and that is not an cover bead. IF the weld was just on the gusset but if you look at the rest of the cage, all the welds on the cage are like that

Don't they look pretty rough to you? I don't see much penetration.

no i agree they are horrible. I am just saying that PSC tried to pass them off as a acceptable welding technique. They are nothing more than alot of overlaping tack welds
