Full roll cage or "weld-in"

What are some opionions on the weld-in roll cages versus the full roll cage? I have found the weld-in cages average $250 ish and the full cages are about $550 ish. I am leaning more towards the full cage because of the uncertainty of the weld-in's.


Thanks

how much do you trust your welding skills? Personally, i am going to go with a weld in front hoop and spreader kit until i can afford to make myself a full cage tied into the frame. Also, how much do you drive it on the highway? I would think for most off road rolls a weld in kit would be fine because(round here at least) it's generally slow going flops, but at highway speed, a roll over can be much, much more serious and better protection will be to your benefit.

Right now I do mostly highway riding. Until I can get my jeep ready for trails and such (swap tires for 33", swap 4" body for 4" suspension). I have no welding skills myself but a co-worker runs the "Shop" at the local highschool ... I might stay with the sport bar and save up for the full cage.
