You confident in the placement of that 2nd A-pillar bar?
As well the door bar?
Looks like a pita to crawl in and out of...
To YJ-Unlimited: rig looks badass. Spec's?
-enjoying everyone's fab efforts-!!
I'll second the top concerns voiced previously.
My TJ top (an OEM factory top) is beyond tight, using my roll bars as locators for the door surrounds. Yeah... It looked fine when we welded up the cage, but the top is about a 1/4 or 1/2 inch too tight. You can get it on, but I have to pre-warm the top, and use vice grips to pull with. It's such a PITA that I put it on before hunting season, and take it off on Memorial Day and that's it.
So, if I were to do it again, I'd have test fit it at least once, and probably a couple times, during the cage install.
(edit; on mine, if I don't use the door surrounds it's easy. But then I get rain dripping inside, and I live in Washington, so.....)
your work is awesome, glad you are putting it on here
that said, not sure I understand your vertical tube flanges. I am sure there is a plan. Part of me on these cross bars, years ago when I did mine. I put in flanges to be able to pull the engine. Puling the engine never came. I would be just as easy when that time come to cut them out and make them removable at the time.
really just here to say great work!!!!!
How is the head clearance to the cross bar above the front seats? Looks like a head banger on a sudden stop.
