Roll Cages AFTER a rollover

I'd like to see some pics of different roll cages AFTER they have gone through a rollover.

We always see pics after the install - and of course, there have been a ton of references to Tracy's roll with her TBT cage.

I'm just wondering if we can get a sampling of how all the different cages really hold up?

You might get more hits in the Pic Request section. But I know stu olsen has some pics up on his site www.stu-offroad.com of his roll cage after a roll. It looks just like it did before the roll!

Given that I've never rolled my TJ, I wonder where those pictures came from?

Yes, I have photos of Tracy's rig after her roll over, but it is FAR from looking like it did before it rolled. The TJ was totaled.

why would he go roll it? Showing off the aluminum underside?
Here's what my TbT rollcage looked like after rolling it at Katemcy:


it did what it's supposed to do -> save me from getting hurt, but it was totaled afterwards (the pictures don't really show that though). The pillars coming down and bolting to the firewall/cowl area were bent, the cross bar was bent and I bet if the windshield wouldn't have been onthere it would've been worse ...

Now there's weld in cage in there

How severe was the roll? I can see the roll damage on the jeep but nothing on the cage, i say two thumbs up for that cage

I was saying that the cage looked just like it did before the roll NOT the entire jeep of course. Heres the link I was talking about, and the pics are under your sportsbar install on your Jeep so I just assumed it was yours sorry.

The purpose for this post is simply this: Most of us are looking for the best preceived quality x cost ratio. Normally, we call this the best "deal."

Most of the time, getting the best "deal" is the end-game. For instance - getting a set of JKS Quicker Disconnects off Ebay for $50 under the usual price from some guy that doesn't really know what he's selling. You got a "deal." So what if the disconnects are a little dirty or used, or may even not hold up for as long as they were supposed to. You still got a good deal and no one gets hurt in the long run.

However, when you're talking roll cages - you have to add a third factor....Safety. So as I contemplate spending between $600 and $1000 on a roll cage - I'm looking for the best perceived quality x cost x safety factor.

I've read a TON of posts about everyone's perceived quality - and about cost.....but what about the ultimate factor - Safety? I haven't seen many posts at all about that.

The saying: "the proof is in the pudding" holds true here. There has to be the BEST CHOICE for a roll cage once you factor in safety.

Let's see if we can figure it out........

Understood.....and I'll agree that the sports bar doesn't look that bad given the way the Jeep turned out.

So far, so good.....haven't managed to put mine over.....yet.

And no Greg....I don't plan on gong out any time soon to get those kind of photos for a new write-up!

After I watched the video and seen how far he rolled, the cage looks good, and the damage wasnt as bad as I was expecting. At least he know that it works now.

it doesn't matter how crumbled it is or not -> it was messed up enough to not trust it in a future roll over
