anybody got any pics of good xj cage setups. I have no welding experience at all but I have a friend who does. Looking at installing a simple yet functional interior cage for my cherokee.

I agree but if you look close its not even welded yet, just tacked. Its a good point that needs to be said though.

My friend's wife came out to help us set the cage out of the Jeep and he had her grind a little... It didn't last long though, she directed all the sparks right at his neck while he was welding... I was trying to snap a picture of it but by the time the camera took the picture, he was raising up to say something to her.

I kinda like the design of the spreaders on this one. makes for more head room and still seems to be pretty solid.

if you look under the dash, it looks like it bolts through the dash and goes down to the floor/frame. Good idea, it gives you more foot room for getting in/out of the Jeep.
