Cage experts...What do you think?

I wasn't gonna post this, but I'm bored and I guess I wouldn't mind hearing what a few people think. How's this cage look? http://community.webshots.com/photo/...47452746idAEge

It's missing a door bar on the passenger side, but other than that it's pretty much done. I was going to gusset the corners or add this and that....but the more I think about it, the more I wanna just keep it simple so if it does get tweaked a little it won't be such a bitch to cut off and build again. So what do you think?

Edit: Here's another shot of the top....http://community.webshots.com/photo/...28115370ziFjLp

I think it looks good. Not overbuilt at the top as many cages are.

Probably would only add one verticle bar between the windshield bar and the top spreader. Looks great.

I was going to do something like that but I can't put a tube from the floor to the windshield bar so I thought that it might bend the windshield bar in a roll. That would be a real pain to fix....almost like starting over from scratch Even if I leave it how it is, it's still waaaaay better than the cage in my old Jeep. Stock rear roll bar and a smitty built front kit....mounted to the body But it took a couple flops and one pretty hard roll upside down.

looks like ass.

You need more triangulation, I'd order 300' more of tube and follow the pic.










(NOTE color chosen, labia Pink. )


Seriously though, looks good, I'd run it.
