I wouldn't consider this a drawback to an exocage, if done properly. I found that on tree-lined trails in the midwest that I had much less surface area to snag on an obstacle with a tube, compared to a buckling body panel. If you keep everything tight to the body it shouldn't be much of a factor. I'm also imagining some sort of front end/hood/fender bars when I say this. I ran mine into the front bumper and along the fender to push off of obstacles and to help keep from snagging the cage on the A pillar equivilant. There are some pics of my old exocaged '85 at:
I tucked the B pillar/middle hoop behind the cab on my full bodied Xtracab. I've since sold that truck and built a buggy. A well-conceived exocab shouldn't be any more prone to snagging than a buggy, right?
