Here are a bunch of pics. 6pt tie into the frame. Added an adjustable/removable passenger grab handle when wheeling.
Also added grab handles in the back for the kids to hold onto.

Cage fabricated by Jim MacDonald over at Rock Spyder 4x4.

Yes, it looks great. Curious though why you tied the windshield to it.

With the fiberglass tub, I wanted to add a bit more support for the windshield.

Because of removing any adjustability for the ws rake, if you make it a fixed point. And because if in a rollover it couldn't fold in anyway with a cage.

Interesting thoughts. The reason I asked, is because I finished my cage as well, and tied it all in.

My thinking is if you do your windshield measuring per the FSM and then a quick angle measurement based on what I've read on here, it should be close enough should you ever put on a top. Ideally, you would want to use a top to set it, but I don't have one unfortunately. Once that angle is when would you ever touch it? How many times in a Jeep owners life are they going to adjust the windshield, or have they at all?

For rollovers, I wanted mine to be tied in so that it doesn't flop around and throw glass everywhere. It also gives more rigidity and takes stress off of the bottom mounts.
