Also, cages are meant to be replaced after a hard roll anyway so it would have served its purpose. Not to sound like im on pirate but all it needed was more trianglulation.

A little more gusseting and triangulation here and there adn you were in pretty good shape. Would have protected you nad the occupents, which is most important.
