For a weekend rig, you'll be fine... If your PLANNING on rolling, and don't wanna chance distortion... Maybe a V from the A to B hoop insted of staight bars back, and if it not gonna be too much of a pain for the back seat, a single cross brace on the B hoop...

I have seen ALOT of rigs with the same design as you have it hold up VERY well...YES, even "Comp" rigs...

great sound like I have a winner...............allright on that v from a to b if I do that would it hurt to do the opposite for the b to c pillar and on that cross brace how high does it need to be the lower for "access" the better I was acutally thinking of adding one at the bottom of the b pillar would that help ??? thanks...................ltr

Overall it's pretty similar to my zuk's cage. The main difference is that I bit the bullet on ease of access and put a diagonal on the B hoop. I also added side to side tubes running along the floor on the B and C hoops.

I think everyone (including you) are concerned with not having any top to bottom support from one side to the other to keep the cage from collapsing in a barrel roll.
Perhaps a tube on and across the floor mating the bottoms of the second hoop and adding two verticle tubes that meet at the top of the middle hoop with the base of each meeting the bottom rail somewhere behind each of the front passenger seats?
Sort of like a tall tent in back of and inbetween the front seats.
It seems to me this will add a bunch of lateral (and top) support yet still leave room for back seat passengers to get in and out.

Well, I was thinking something like this added to the middle hoop behind the front seats going down to the green bar you've already drawn.
Rear passengers can grab the gusset (or strap) and step in without crawling through a jungle jim.
It's not the best triangulation but should add a ton more lateral and top strength.
Just a thought ...
