I guess I should patent using an umbrella on a rainy day, I would make a shit-ton of cash!!!
For something to be patented, it needs to be new and unique and never produced before. Or, if it has been done before, it needs to have an improvment that is innovative. So, some thoughts:

Rollbars have been around a long time.
Exo cages have been around a long time.
Latching/hinging doors on exo cages have been around a long time.
Tied into a frame has been around a long time but I don't know how most people tie into a unibody. Could be something there.
Tieing in with flexible bushing mounts has been done.
Bolt together and weld together kits have been around a long time.
Supplying light tabs/ flag tabs/ racks has been done before.

So, does anybody know what unique thing he has that hasn't been listed?
