Holaday

I went with a DIY kit from https://www.welderd.com/
Everything was notched, tabbed, and pre-bent. Made for a very quick install and was about $800

Mousejockey OK, Ive been looking into the bolt on 'cages'
From what I can gather, unless you have a full, frame tie in, proper geometry cage, ithey are close to other 'kits' as far as function.

Now, I dont expect no damage if a rollover happens, nor do I expect any help if one happens on the road.
Im looking for something to increase safety from a flop or such.
For those that know Fordyce, Winch hill 1 is an example of the 'extreme' Id encounter

Mousejockey Suppose I was hoping to find a vendor somewhere with a stash of say AtoZ type kits, decent kits in the $500 range

Not much a fan of bolt in kits, better than factory yes, but still look, well, 'Bolt on" so to say

Leaning tward the PS pre-welded full cage
Not a fan of the stanchion method, but I am realistic that the cage is there to help ME survive a rollover, not the rig. One time use is all Id expect, otherwise Id end up in the Buggy section of the forums

The bolt in type dont interest me, seem more show than go

Lookin into the PS pre welded full cage, or may just go with adding spreaders to the stock one.

Some elements of a bolt in this cage.

cjstefan Yeah I'd have the crossbar at the header and have the center spreader bars going from the middle of that to the a pillar spreader bars. They would still form triangles just backwards from the way they normally are. I'm most likely either going with the A to Z front cage or having one one custom done since I heard theirs takes alot of fitting. It was just something that popped into my head while I was thinking about triangulation. I talked to SW about their front cage and they said they can make the 2 center spreader bars angle out as well, I'm just waiting back to hear from them on price.

You want to attach a diagonal bar to the B pillar where the current A to B spreader attaches? How do you have access to that mounting point without removing the A to B spreader which doesn't seem like a good idea. A triangle with a side missing isn't very strong. Seems to me you'd need to weld or maybe do a collar clamp. Are you adding a cross bar at the header? Without that not sure how you're attaching that end of the diagonal.
