Corner gussets will be added, but the owner wanted access to the backseat through the window

A question and sorta mini poll for all of you cage fabricators...

I have seen a lot of people build off of the stock B-Pillar with kits such as the poly performance. What is your thoughts on building off of the stock B-Pillar vs a new DOM B-Pillar and what are the positives and negatives of either in your mind.

The positives of using a new hoop is that it is a better structural member.

The factory cage is designed for one time use while a true cage can withstand repeated flops and rubs. It is a cheap upgrade.

In my cage I opted to put a single piece of DOM from the A pillar all the way to the tub at the C pillar (drivers front to drivers back). I then built off these for cross braces (Drivers side to passenger side), for the A pillar, B pillar and C pillar. I would replace the B pillar hoop either way.

Made a little more pregress on my cage. It's almost ready to pull and fully weld. Just need to add a couple gussets and my windshield bars.

Not so fast. We have had a bunch of rolls and flops on stock B-pillars with our cage additions and they are ready to go for more. The stock B-pillar, when properly welded and gusseted to is not necessarily a "one-time use" piece, nor is a cage addition a "cheap upgrade". The stock B-pillar in the YJ and TJ Wranglers is 2.25" OD, which as a size alone is much stronger than 1 3/4". Not knowing the material make-up of the tubing it is hard to state actual strengths of the tubing, but we can say, with evidence, that the stock B-pillars can definitely take a reasonable impact and are not necessary to throw our for every rig. If we have a customer come to us looking for a cage solution for a daily driver and weekend trail rig we tend to recommend the cage additions. There are not soft top fitment issues, etc. If someone tells me they will be competing or have a chance to roll every time they go out wheeling then a full replacement cage is likely in order.

My point: Don't disregard the option of making the stock B-pillar a structural member.

Have a great day!!!
Zach Vaughn.
