Our Lazer-Fit system means that all of the tubes are CNC laser notched, and the exact placement all of the tube intersections are laser etched right on the tube for ease of assembly. The tubes are all NC bent as well. The result is we believe our cage is the fastest, easiest to install. We can have them fully tacked together in the Jeep (not finish-welded) in about 45 minutes. Granted, we've had a little practice and it would take a little longer for someone putting one in for the first time

when I installed my cage it took just under 3hrs to fully weld it in the jeep.
That was both of our first times installing a Cage.
It was the cage kit for S&W tho, all DOM tube bent and notched thru the dash design.

Are you talking full trail cage, or just the add on cage?

I have the poison spyder full trail cage. Pretty sure with either company you're on your own for soft top brackets, seat belt bungs and seat belt retractors.

Those bends towards the driver/passenger in the A-pillar feet concern me. Seems with a roll it would be more likely to bend inward. Also the dash bar has lost a lot of it's function due to the 2 90* bends in it as opposed to a straight dash bar between the left and right A-pillars.

Really there is no reason to build a cage like that and not go through the dash with fewer bends in the A-pillars IMO.

If I purchased a Jeep with that cage in it, I would remove it and start over.

exactly. That A pilar would collapse easily and the dash bar is useless.

just because you or your friend has a tubing bender and a welder, doesnt mean you are qualified to build a cage.

BTF sport cage

Cage fit very well, and no problems with install. Still have to add some grab handles.

Thanks for pictures of a BTF sport cage. Can you take a picture or two of the A pilar where it meets the flat stantion bolted to the dash.

Sport cage is next in my list of mods.
Thanks.
