Best weld on YJ roll cage kit?

I am shopping for full family style weld on yj roll cage kit for my 91 yj. Some say Tennessee roll cage kit is the one of the best. I could not access this Tenn off road website bec it does not exist. Anyone has correct website to the Tennessee Offroad? What about Poison Spdyer roll cage? I think the rear roll cage is too cramped for my kids. Any other excellent family roll cage kit out there?

91 yj, 4:1, 4.88 Detroit lock'd, chromo shafted HP D44, 8.8, Hy Steer, Woody shafts, Gibson header, 37 Nitto Mud Grapplers, Centerforce Dual Frinction clutch, MORE anti wrap traction bar, (soon to come... full family roll cage)

I used a KOZ cage.

Not bad cage overall...had to grind a few of the tubes to get the lengths just right.

There are a couple of ideas in these two threads. Try searching as there are many threads on this subject.

I wouldn't touch any Spyder stuff personally. But that's just my opinion.

Why not just have someone local bend up the cage of your dreams? I have used HREW tube and there is nothing wrong with it for trail cages but from now on I'll use DOM. And BTW attach your cage to the frame.

Thanks for the warning about eBay. What about KOZ roll cage kit on eBay?

nobody20,

What is wrong with Spyder roll cage kit? I will reconsider and don't buy Spyder kit.
Also you said that HREW tubing is fine but you will use DOM tubing next time. What is wrong with HREW? I know a local shop that use HREW tubing but need to check round first before I decide what to do next.

TOR all the way...but its only for the front. fit really well together. only use DOM or cromo for a cage. HREW should only be used for racks and shit like that. also there is a thread on here not to long ago bout the spyder kit and its down falls...u should check it out

I personally don't like PS and I really don't think the geometry of the back part of the cage is very good for protecting rear passagners. But this is just my oipinion. As far as HERW goes I have a a cage in my CJ-5 that is x-braced at the b-pillar and the over cockpit is v-braced. The a-pillar has a dash level horizonatal member and a vertical member in the center between the cage and horizontal. There is a horizontal member tying the two back diagonals together near their base. It also has numerous diagonal gussets at its nodes. It has stood up well to rolls and had no problems.

Since I am about to build a new cage for the YJ I just want to upgrade to DOM for its better material properties. Its like running a 70 instead of a 60. The DOM just provides a little more of a safety margin. I can afford the DOM so why not? Its like Bill Clinton said when asked about Monica Lewisnky, "I did it because I could."

HREW is fine, particularly for anyone wanting a "kit."

I have the KOZ kit on my tj and it is very nice. The one on ebay is the same as mine only mine is for a tj. I would highly recommend them.

I too have been looking at a cage for my 91 YJ. I like the TOR & EOR cage kits. Heres the link for TOR. http://www.tennesseeoffroad.com


Anyone have a link for KOZ? I'd like to see it.

Genright's cage kit looks pretty good. They have gusset tubes for every corner and looks a lot sturdier then most of the stuff out there. Although, it is a bit pricey.

I have the genright cage in my TJ and the fit and finish is amazing. Seems to be extremely safe maximizing head room etc. Hard top even fits on with 1/8" clearance.

To the op why not go custom you have two shops within a half hour drive that could easily set you up with exactly what you want = Any7 (San Leandro) + Shaffers (Oakland)
