Cage / Frame tie in

I am planning on installing my cage into my 1970 CJ-5. I want to tie the cage into the frame. I am looking for pics of tie in. XJ pics are welcome, I am looking for ideas.

Do I need a bushing at the mount?

Thanks

That will work good for the front hoop (Thanks) but does anyone have good pics of the rear hoop?

A guy under the TJ forum is doing a coil over stretch. Here's what he did for the rear of the jeep. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/options-stretch-plus-coilovers-220641/
