Here's the one that just went into my YJ. Welded solid to the frame, no connection to the body at all.

I'm afraid to peel it off, it's been on there so long I'm sure the paint's faded around it.

Its not a TJ but maybe someone will find it useful. Still have a few stringers, some kinda x behind the seats, gussets, some plating on the roof x, etc. I think it turned out pretty nice for my first try with a bender. This is from last year, heep is in pieces now getting rebuilt.

Thanks, was tough getting it so rear passengers wouldnt hit their heads on the bars and the soft top would still go on.

Tested repeatedly. Eight frame tie-ins, from the stinger to the back of what's left of the frame. All 1 1/2" DOM.
Sometime this year, it's all going away, got a couple of compression bends.

Work in progress

I finally have a cage to post up. I have been working on my "family" cage for the past month. It is mostly 1.75" .120" wall DOM with a few HREW pieces. I still have various gussets and two tubes in the back to add (to the "U" part of the rear cross-bar down to the C-pillars). The cage needs to be removed for finish welds/ paint. I will mount suspension seats up front later so hip bars and the rear harness bar will be added at that time. The rear section is were my kiddos will ride in PRP baby seats so that part will have to be added too. Then the rear storage compartment will be fabricated under and behind the kids seats.

Note: I do not have a tube bender. This was all pre-bent/ straight tubing from either EOR, Jeeptubes.com, or PolyPerformance. I specified bends and lengths which made things easy. I just had to cut and notch the stuff.

Here it is:
