Default YJ cage add-on

Just finished my family cage add-on tonight. Used a kit from KOZ Off Road. For the A pillar I ran square tube up the side of the cowl to tie-in to the cage at the dash. It's probably not as strong as a full tube but will give me more leg room. The front pods will hold 4" round speakers and small interior lights. I took the pics before removing the cage to finish welding.

Looks good, i did something similar on mine, only carried the side windshield tube down to an angle that is sammich bolted to the body pillar.
Not the strongest, but better than stock!!

Yep, the tube is painted black. Does not show up too well. It's welded to the cowl everywhere I could and has a plate at the bottom to spread the load. Big86 - I saw how you did that on another thread and kinda copied it.
