I really want to start on my cage build, but my lack of metal working experience has me leaning towards the Poison Spyder trail cage kit. Are there any other kits out there already cut and notched? I assume I will go with a "ready to weld in" kit.

Any headroom issues with the AtoZ sport cage. I really like the design up front, but I'm 6'3".

Sweet! Like the single piece A-to-C pillar (smooth side) design. AND the integrated stinger to fender idea.

What size tube did you use for your shock towers?

1.75 In .120 wall DOM for the towers.

Started the seat cage today. Not many pics yet.

Sick seat sliders I went and picked up at Chassis Unlimited.

Nice sliders, I wish i had seen those before I built mine. They look low-ish profile too.

We can also do straight front center spreaders, but then there is no triangulation overhead.

KMD, nice work!!

Have a great day!!!

Thank you Sir!

More progress. Not as much head room as I was hoping for so need to put the top on and suck up spreaders as much as possible.

Thanks for the help. I'm still on the fence about buying a bender or just buying the cage and welding it in.

Buy a bender, then you can make fenders, flares, rails, stingers and beyond!

Plus then you can sell it to me, then i can sell it to another and so on, keep the bender cycling on jeepforum!
