    the ones that go to the "B" pillar, do they then go internal as i didnt think that would be strong enough fro roll cage, also what Dia tubing is it looks quite big

    shame its a 5 door on a 3 dr one more down support to the rock sliders would not only look better but give more side protection aswell

    Yes, though if it was up to me not the customer there would be an internal braced hoop to hold it all true as well

    Standard winch bumper converted to 8274, the customer bought a winch tray to modify as I didnt have time to make one,if I had it would have been one piece.

    Just shows how difficult it is to make an aesthetically pleasing cage for a disco!!

    That's looks a LOT better than most to be fair, but even then it's awkward looking around the front.

    I think cages are basically ugly, that's the problem!! :D

    For me I think I'd be looking at internal cage which then becomes external for the roof, travelling through the pillars.

    Would forget about the front end cos it's just too ugly and very easy to replace those panels.

    Thanks for posting pics by the way! :)

    thats my idea, but i need to work out how to get through pillars and being able to access rear seats, my roof rack at mn has taken a pounding and saved roof and windows a few times..
