I've recently become infatuated with building my roll cage and want to see what everyone else has done! Let um roll! :-)

Not extreme hardcore. Goes through the dash. Frame tie-ins are planned.

A and C pillars tied to frame, seats and harnesses tied to cage which eliminates harness/seat belt shear points if the cage does separate. Triangulated everywhere I could. 2" x .120" for main tubes and 1.5" erw for everything else. LED dome lights front and back. Fits under a bestop soft top. Home made.









Still retained the seat tilt by using a hitch pin:







dome lights:





Speaker mounts:



Center console is tied to seat frame too:








Many more pics if you want to see a specific area .

Cheers!

Thanks. That's the factory soundbar. I cut it down, filled the ends, and my wife modified the cover.

Good idea. I just added to my cage and was thinking about what I should do with the sounds bar now that it doesn't fit.

I randomly find pics of your rig and post them on my buddy's FB wall. Its actually funny, because within a few hours after I do it, he will call and say he needs a hand with his cj5. He doesn't get motivated that often to really do much, but when he does he hits it hard. His neighbor asked him once what the hell he's on, because for about a week he was out there pulling 14 or 15 hours a a time. His response, "this damn yellow cj that my buddy keeps teasing me with." Now I have a few more

LOL, thats cool. I am glad the effort of posting pics is worthwhile. My wife calls those episodes of inspired work "tangents". It's how to get her done I think.

A month ago, I was all set to pull my fenders and do up some tube fenders and posted some questions about doing it, one of the guys (RARECJ8) posted some pics of his but had his welder out and doing some trail repairs, well off I go, building a dual batt and trail welder set up. My wife was happy about this one as she likes the CJ fenders, so til they get damaged beyond repair, they will stay.

Finished up mine today for now.



Replaced the sissy spreader bars, added gussets/grab handles, header bar, dash bar, two center bars, and a rear spreader bar with two gussets. Still have a lot to do but I feel like I've got a good base now.





I was able to wedge my sound bar in too :-)

I'll be adding mine to this thread soon. Less of a home-brew setup on mine though.

Rear is on the way from my guys at Poison Spyder. Front to be ordered this coming week from BTF. I'll get it all burned together asap.
