Anyone been snagged by an exco

just wondering if anyone has been snagged or hooked up by an exterior roll cage and stopped them from making it to the top.

Any pics:D

not if you build it right

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?

how bout reading your other post in general cross poster :flipoff2:
I have seen a stump caught in one. It stopped the rig from reaching the bottom. I think it came in pretty handy. Granted, he could have gotten down much smoother on the tires vs. the roof.
