JK 4-Door Trail Cage Kit (Bolt-Together) 2011+
2 Door & 4 Door Available!
The Poison Spyder Bolt-Together Trail Cage Kit (patent pending) is the strongest add-on cage you can bolt in to your JK. Designed to strengthen your Jeep's existing roll bar, the Poison Spyder Trail Cage Kit fortifies the driver and passenger area by adding a robust cage fabricated from CNC laser notched, NC-bent DOM steel tubing and CNC laser cut, precision brake-formed 3/16" plate steel components. When shopping for a cage kit for your Jeep, make sure that any product you are considering uses stronger DOM, "Drawn Over Mandrel" structural tubing rather than the cheaper welded seam tubing that some manufacturers use.
A Better Bolt-Together Method
olt-in cage kits need a way to join the structural tubing components of the kit. Popular kits on the market today use either a knuckle-style clamp or a simple tube insert with crush bolt. Both methods have their weaknesses. For instance the large knuckle style clamps may look beefy, but they're still pre-loading a clamping force onto a rather thin wall tube, creating a dangerous stress riser right at the junction of two tube members—where the cage is likely to see its biggest stresses. Poison Spyder uses a system of CNC machined, solid steel interlocking tube couplers that are placed inline along the run of a tube member, rather than at the joints of the cage. These tube clamps are placed where the cage is not likely to see side loads, however they are still stronger than the knuckle style clamp in a side-loading situation. At the tube junctions are the high quality, laser-notched, professionally welded tube junctions you would find in a custom fabricated cage. The interlocking tube couplers are also lower profile, with the same outside diameter as the tubing itself, so it yields a sleeker, less "bolt-in" appearance.
Full-Height A-Pillar Assembly
The A-Pillar section of the Poison Spyder JK Trail Cage Kit extends all the way to the floor of the JK with a single piece of CNC laser cut, precision brake-formed 3/16" plate steel. The A-Pillar hugs the contours of the Jeep's dash ends perfectly, making the best use of the limited space available for an A-Pillar that does not hinder legroom or ease of entry. The A-Pillar bolts not only to the floor, but to the forward door post via a 1/2" thick strengthening rib, and also to the dash structure itself. The lower end of the A-Pillar is fortified with heavy duty gusseting. Competitors' cage kits either do not include full-height A-Pillars (stopping at the bottom of the dash) or require the purchase of a separate bolt-on lower piece.
Full DOM Tube Door Headers
The Poison Spyder JK Trail Cage Kit includes full DOM replacements for the cheap stock header bars. The DOM tube structure of the header bars is integrated into the overal cage design to form a complete, well thought-out cage structure. Some competing bolt-in cages retain the use of the stock header bars, clamping the added-on components to the weak thin wall stock tubing.
DOM Tube Dash and Windshield Crossbars
The Poison Spyder JK Trail Cage Kit includes DOM tube crossbars just above the dash and at the top of the windshield, to provide structural rigidity and side-load strength to the cage. The upper windshield crossbar is compatible with the popular sPOD power disctribution system switch panel, as well as the OE sun visors. The dash bar tighltly hugs the top of the Jeep's dash, but is compatible with the factory tweeter speakers. By using Poison Spyder's interlocking tube coupler system, these horizontal members of the cage bolt together while preserving the strength of a traditional welded cage.
Plate Steel Center Stringer
The center overhead stringer on the Poison Spyder JK Trail Cage Kit is fabricated from CNC laser cut, brake-formed 3/16" plate steel. Other cages on the market use two pieces of tubing for the center stringers, but Poison Spyder's 3/16" plate steel piece provides ultimate overhead protection, great looks, and a convenient flat mounting surface for items like CB radios, switches, dome lights, etc. The top of the stringer "box" is open, for easy access for wiring, or as a convenient place to store maps under a soft top.
Optional Entry Grab Handles
Entry Grab Handles may be added to your JK Trail Cage Kit, by selecting it from the options when adding to your cart. These handles are NC-bent, 1.25" OD DOM tubing, and designed to aid ease-of-entry as well as provide a solid grab point for driver and passenger while four-wheeling. The handles will come already welded to the Trail Cage.
MIG or TIG Welded
Poison Spyder's signature MIG welds are widely recognized as the best looking welds in the industry. For some, however, the lower profile, cleaner look of TIG welds may be desired. TIG welding is a higher skilled, more time-consuming process so there is an up-charge for this option.
The Poison Spyder Welded Full Cage is a complete, fully welded, ready-to-bolt-in cage designed with hard core four-wheeling in mind. It represents a combination of maximum functionality and unmistakable Poison Spyder style. We start with our famous Lazer-Fit Full Cage Kit, which is CNC laser notched and NC bent for a precise fit. Then the kit is professionally welded together in our precision fabricated assembly fixtures. The result is a beautiful cage with gorgeous welds, ready to bolt into your Jeep to instantly transform it into a safe, great looking hard core trail rig. This is a great opportunity for those without access to a welder, or who simply don't want to hassle with welding their own, to get a quality, ready-to-bolt-in Poison Spyder Full Cage into their Jeep.
All Poison Spyder Cages are made of 100% DOM structural tubing. DOM (Drawn Over Mandrel) tubing far exceeds the more commonly used HREW (Hot Rolled Electric Welded) in tensile strength and yeild strength. Simply put, it will withstand much more abuse before bending, crushing or stretching. The TJ Full Cage incorporate Poison Spyder's proprietary Lower A-Pillars. The Lower A-Pillar is engineered to provide a strong foundation for the forward section of the cage while not intruding into the dash or compromising legroom. The Lower A-Pillars and gussets, as well as all mounting plates, are CNC laser cut and precision brake-formed from high strength 3/16" plate steel for quality and fit.
Note that, due to variations in seat configurations, the behind-the-seat harness bar, as shown in the photo above, does NOT come with this cage unless expressly requested. Upon your request we can either include it un-welded, or weld it in at a standardized height/location.
Entry Grab Handles are sold separately. However, if you order them at the same time as your welded cage kit and ask us to do so in the comments, we will be happy to weld them on to your cage at no additional cost. These Grab Handles make entry and exit easier, as well as provide a secure grab handle while wheeling. Made of 1.25" X .120 wall tubing, bent and laser notched to perfectly fit Poison Spyder Lazer-Fit™ cage.
Fully welded cages must be shipped via truck freight. But the rates are surprisingly reasonable, and are actually somewhat comparable to shipping the same kit un-welded via parcel shipping. This shopping cart can not calculate truck freight shipping charges, but we will be happy to get you a shipping quote if you call our sales desk at 951-849-5911 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Cages are welded up to order, and due to variances in shop scheduling, please allow an additional 1-2 weeks for delivery.
