This is a side shot with it all tacked in place to locate the sliders before tacking them in place.
Very nice work on the tie ins! I like the slider idea..

Thanks. Hope I never have to test them. I figure the tube step and plate will be my "crush zone" if I ever was to get T-boned.

This is exactly what I've been imagining in my head all day. It's perfect. I've looked at hundreds of cages, but this is spot on. It looks amazing.

No A pilar of any kind? Just the windshield frame. Beefs up the rest of the cage a bit but doesn't seem to address the main weakness of the stock cage.

[QUOTE=SFRautomotive;16317737]Just a simple add-on cage. Using 1.75 dom and the genright dash stanchions (bottom half is not back in yet.)






These handles are made from old stock Jeep tierods. They seem to work nicely.

I'm sorry to resurrect a year old thread but this is awesome. It's exactly what I've been looking for. The "tie rod" handles are genius!

I have never commented on this thread before, so sorry if i interrupt and ongoing discussion here, I just have a quick question. I wanted the opinions of people with real world experience and you seem like an experienced bunch

Can anyone here attest to the strength of a sleeved and rosette welded butt joint vs the strength of a 90* joint where one piece is coped (ie a 'T' joint)? Talking shear force. It seems to me that the sleeved joint would be just as strong, but it's such an unconventional technique that I'm not familiar with its real world strength attributes. Thanks!

I don't know how it compares to other joints, but internal sleeved joints that are plug/rosette welded and butt welded are commonly used in all kinds of racing, so I wouldn't worry about the sleeve joint. I've been doing alot of research on cages as I'm about to start my first cage (research including cages from race cars, because there's alot of good information there as well!)

Alot of stuff that I've seen specifies that the sleeve extend at least 2x the tube diameter inside each tube (so if 2" tube, then the sleeve needs to be at least 8" long, 4" on each side?), the sleeve wall thickness the same as the main tube wall thickness, a fit that's not loose, and then 4 rosette welds. Not sure if that means 4 on each side, or 4 total. It seems to be a very common joint, even on a brand new cage, not just a repair job.

How often do yall use sleeve joints on newly constructed cages?

Cool Thanks for the info. That is also something I would like to know: How often do other people use this joint in a newly constructed cage?

I gotta question too. We all know radius bends are the way to go. But considering if doe without bends is there any way to mak it strong enough to handle a roll? Talking all cut and weld not bent.
