Thanks Eddie. I am kinda waiting on ordering the seats so I can get them in and work around them. I definately want to add the cross braces behind them.

I figured you'd like my windsheild frame. Lime Green!!!!

Meh, that seems like more work than it is worth.

Wouldn't it be more cost effective (if thats what you're after) to build off of the factory CJ-5 roll bar?

Is this a home made cage? Or can it be purchased somewhere? I love the idea of having the seat brackets tied into it! Thanks.
