Your custom Poly Cage is sweet by the way. I might just end up driving to CA to get them to build me one like yours.

I still can't find out how thick the wall is on the tubing of the rear half of the factory LJ cage. Any ideas?

I would run the add on kit before I bought two kits. Through the dash is important.

Poly has built 2 cages for me and some for my friends. Can't argue with the quality.

Anybody have any picsof a tj with no windshield and a cage that is raked back and has twin b pillar tubes like Tim camerons fat girl buggy. The copperhead Tj is close to what I'm looking for but just trying to get a little more rake on it.

that is really too close. But you could lower the seats a little or make sure your sholder straps are REALLY tight.

Quote: "Ok guys I hope that the pics help - - this is what I am building -- as it is right now I have 2 inches from the top of my head to the bottom of the tube. However, there are no tube directly over my head - - so there is 3.75 inches from the top of my head to where the aluminum roof will be - - Do you all think that this will be enough room or am i going to crack my dome piece???"

I think that may be too close to your head. Hit a few good bumps and you will wish you had more room. I would leave 4-5 inches with padding on the tubing if it is positioned above your head. If you can move tubing forward or backward to position it so it is not directly above your head then you are better off in my opinion.

My B pillar spreader was above my head and I positioned it 5 inches toward the rear of the jeep to avoid smacking my head on it. Clifton Slay did the same on his LJ roll cage then runs a gusset from the vertical B pillar to the horizontal B spreader.


What if you let someone else taller drive your rig? May have issues.

I run no windshield and have some rake, but a single tube b piller.

thanks for the reply upsidedown - - I am closer now to having this cage done - - I don't think that I am going to have a problem with head room now. I have almost 4 inches and there are no tubes directly over my head. If I put the ballistic tube clamps on it to make it more easily removable I can raise it more if i feel the need.

Mine's pretty simple. Kinda hard to see, but there's cross bracing that goes from the harness bar down directly to the frame. Still need to tie seats into it. Just waiting on new seats.

can you still use your stock soft top? im getting ready to redo my factory junk cage and make one but i still drive the jeep to work every now and then and on the road sometimes so i want the top to still work.

The key to getting a TJ stock soft top to work with a new cage is to make sure the B-pillar is in the exact same location as stock for the bow mounts, and the windshield spreaders from the B-pillar to the windshield need to be in the same location and diameter for the door surrounds. If you can buy a new top, the Supertops use all new mounting points and are not cage dependent so you have much more flexibility in mounting locations.

There havent been my pics of how the cages are being tied into the frames. I dont want my cage to be bolted to the body, or to have the tub sandwiched between the cage plates, and was thinking of using the tube clamps at all six mounting points. (http://www.atozfabrication.com/store...p-Coupler.html) That way it can be removed easily. Guess my question is; would this be an acceptable, and safe way to mount the cage? Just seems like a cleaner way than using the plates, but I've never seen it done. This way I could just hole saw the tub, drop the tube thru the floor and weld it to the frame, and then use the tube clamp up top in the interior side where it would all come together.

Makes removal and installation alot easier. Its going to have to come back out again for more work and final paint. It will all be tied to the frame eventually.

Has anyone run across a rear view mirror that will attach to the role cage? I currently have a 1.5” dia vertical tube that splits the windshield and would like to mount a rear view mirror to it but can’t find one. I would like to install one that is shaped somewhat like a stock mirror but something that doesn’t attach to the windshield anymore but to the cage. Thanks.

One of the first cages in this thread that I wouldn't want to change. Great design
What is the story for 1" tube out back and the welded eyelets?
