Used this thread for inspiration on my new cage, so even thought it's a YJ, I figured I would contribute. Still needs a roof, I think I will run smoked plexi in the center.

Its fine for my boys, I'm not sure how an adult would be back there.

The seat and harnesses are set up for kids, so there are no adults riding in the back.

The kids wear helmets on the trail, but I don't think there is any chance of them hitting their head.

Here is a pic of them in the back when we were test fitting their seat.

This is my first attempt at a cage... still working on it, so if anyone has some ideas to help out feel free. I am planning on 1 more cross bar alone the front, top part of the cage (doin the evil squinty eye/brow look) then an inverted V between it and the middle cross bar with two spreaders matching the rear section and then door bars. On the rear section I will have 1 more cross bar right behind the rear seat that is level with the rear most bar.

Finally ended up testing my cage the other weekend. It held up great. Besides some major scratches on the paint, there was no damage done. Didn't even touch the windshield. I did tweak my tub around the drivers side door quite a bit though.
