Really dig it, but the gauge will get decapitated in its current location. May wnat to do a remote mount with a flex hose?

Thanks guys. Miguelitojeep nailed it. The eyelets are for the clip-in harnesses and the 1" tubing is for a bestop basket.

I really like the looks of that Genright cage, I will probably copy a few of the contours of the design for mine.

Good job welding it together.

I guess I should have been more specific. The eyelets are different heights. Is that to match up with the slits in the seats or is something else going on?

The ones located low on both the passenger and driver side are for my girlfriend who is 5 2 and yes for her the straps will come through the slits in the seats and both shoulder straps will clip into the single eyelet. The one located high on the driver side along with the tab are for me and the shoulder belts will come over the seats. I am 6 2.

That is the same way I did mine, but I started with the Poison Spyder cage, I have almost the exact same changes you have. Nice work.

Great thread, I must have went through it 8 times last week before adding to my cage. Other than running out of tube, I was able to get the main pieces in am still able to use my door surrounds and soft top. The front dimensions I used for bending up the A pillar brackets were 31" through the dash, then up 16" and back 8.75". This put my bends close enough to the stock location to be able to trim the door surrounds and still fit them. The 20 deg kick for the B to C bars worked like a charm, thanks for that! The rear is not finish so you'll have to imagine spreaders mimicking the front in the back




I'm 6' tall and have about 5.5" above my head in the stock TJ seat. I set my bends up at up 3.5" and back 8" to get as much head room as I could for the B to A spreaders. I also jogged the right and left side in a little to keep the tubes from going over my head.




Seats/harnesses are next along with hip bars to tie A to B along the base.
My intent is to keep the rear seat so I'm lacking the lateral support that I should have. I'm looking for suggestions on how to add lateral support without making it impossible to use the rear seat. Need to keep it kid friendly for trips to the ice cream shop

this is my cage not really to complex but it was my first go around with tube bending so i kept it fairly simple.







seat mounts



then put 4 snap on the front of the roll cage to run a safari top while wheeling

Very nice cage. What's the deal with the splice in the A piller?

I'd say short on tube length. But if it was me I would have cut the roof tube back a bit further up the A=pillar & run a full length internal sleeve tube & welded it up. Join seems bit too close to bend to be able to run a good length sleeve either side of join.

The splice makes mulit-plane bends easier. Cheater splice

I had to do the same thing on my c-pillar just like they did.

Looks like there is another splice at the top of the C piller.

A-pillar so that we could dial in the height just right while checking multiple seat positions/angles. C-pillar so that we could eyeball the angle and length in multiple positions till we liked it.

What about the kid's trips on the trails? Where are your priorities? Dont mean to rant. Also I had thought about this too. I never use my rear seat anyways, plus I put susp seats and harnesses in which mean they cant go through the inside anyway. Plus your jeep is tall, its going to be a PITA not matter what getting in that back seat. Might as well make the cage strong. You could do one lateral on the B-pillar to have access to the rear seat from passenger side...

I get the kid thing. I don't have any of my own yet so they won't be on the trail with me in the immediate future. I would like to be able to take my neice and nephew to get ice cream when they want to though. We really don't have trails in the midwest where going over is an issue. The only time the cage should come into play is at a park and I usually don't have anyone in besides myself at that time anyway. I get what you're saying though. I'll look at it some more and see what I can do. Thanks for the advice.

This thread has been an excellent source of information on cage builds, thanks for those who posed pics......
I have a quick question, when designing a cage what do you allow for head clearance? I just built a cage that fits around the half cab hard top on my scramber. The main hoop is mighty close to my mellon and I am out of spece to move bars around.

My build items I tried to work with were:
- LOG - achieved with 2" lift on 40's
-Keep the tank underneath -The Rollcage design was for this reason too
-increase rear wheelbase "101" (plans to push front about another 5" out front)-tank becomes an obstacle
-last but important was to TRY and have a rear seat, modified to acomadate my ORI strut towers
-The lateral B-pillar bar is an obstacle, harness mount and cage support

Agreed, they usually form a /\ but since mine will be similar to this I'm interested in the responses.

Or how about anyone's input on an X in the windshield frame? Going this route would allow someone to tie into their spreader bars and then also into some tubing that will be in the engine compartment.

And wouldn't an X would give you the best vision out of the window?
