But seriously, build it how YOU want it, then no matter what it is cool to you...

And that poor CJ with the sculptured wheels, It's a shame they wasted an axle with 1 piece shafts for that.. wonder if they'd notice a switch..

Manhattan that is a sick roll cage. I would like to do something similar. Which should I go towards, kit or build? I don't know how to weld, but would love something unique and save as much money as possible!

Thanks! The kits (hoop and 2-4 spreaders) are a great way to get a basic cage in a Jeep on a tight budget. Still need to find a good (!) welder, but much cheaper than a full-custom cage. Most custom cages - assuming you're paying for materials and labor - will be north of $1,000. And because China is building empty, unused cities (seriously, it's weird - Google it), steel has gotten more and more expensive.

Depending on your budget, design, etc... you could build a basic cage now, and add to it later. I've seen where guys did the 6-point cage with 2 spreaders, then later, pulled the cage, added door bars, seat mounting bars, windshield/dash bars...

This is my first (and long since sold) CJ. I started with a kit - the windshield hoop and two spreaders. Then I added the door bars, cross bracing, etc.
