JKs with sport cage & no windshield

Not expecting much here considering the proportion of people that add bolt-in sport cages multiplied by the even smaller amount that put their windshield down, but....

I'd like to add a RockHard4x4 Sport Cage to my wife's JK so that we can still put down the windshield and have a bit of a cage. I've seen pictures of the cage but never without a windshield. Considering the different nature in which the JKs connect to the windshield, I've love to see a picture on how it looks.

Anyone got anything for me?

If you've got the RockHard sport cage, there's totally a year membership in it for you if you put the windshield down and get me a picture!

Found this old post of mine. Surprised nothing ever happened, even with the incentive.

Bump?

Not a rock hard but I think ORF. I like the idea my self though i would remove the hinge bolts too and just take it off IF the cage is made well.

One of those mods i want, I am leaning Poison spider.

Oh, I like that!

The reason I wanted a picture of the RockHard4x4 cage is because of the weird way they mate the downposts to the windshield brackets. See picture below:



I have no desire to weld something up, so it's bolt-in nature is a big plus for me. (And I love the RH4x4 cage I have in my YJ).

It seems like ORF fixed that weirdness by replacing the existing forward cage and adding neater connection brackets.

Of course, only after I bump this do I realize that adding our rack to the JK means I probably won't ever be able to put down the windshield. Rats.

Oh well, we use the rack constantly, but the windshield would probably only come down every once in a while.

Dang, that looks awesome, though.

(Not a RockHard, but more information than anyone else had been able to give me for the past however many years I've been asking, ha ha, so thank you! The next 6 months are on me!)
