Default Customer Cage...

We have been talking with a customer about a cage for his Rubicon. Last weekend he dropped it off with some renderings of what he was looking for.

He picked it up this morning and this is how it turned out. Most of the concepts are close to his drawings... but we moved some tube around so the nodes flow nicer, and it fits tight with his speaker pods. Another suprise (to him) was I ran the speaker pod and dome light wiring inside the cage instead of on the outside, factory style.

This cage was built with later upgrades in mind. Once he ditches the back seat he will go with full seat tie-in's and mounts for harneses...

His color choice was "Safety Red" (Yes I know we need a new camera :tonka: )

I'm sure they design them with that in mind... That is kinda the point of having a cage after all... :miff:

They wheel their rigs hard enough to test their fab products, but I don't think they are in any comps. I only know 2 people from MI that run comps.

You don't have to run comps to roll over.....

You guys have came a long way since you got me hooked on Yotas... nice work as always

Who is doing computer simulations for there aftermarket products? I would love to talk to them to do some marketing material for the design software I sell. Any info would help. Since I am tyring to finish the YJ and sell it (driving a 2006 Scion xB now) I need to find a way to still exercise the JEEP demons.

Cool roll cage. Very clean lines on there and appears to be minimal visibility loss.

We price on a job to job basis, depends on options, if we have to paint it, etc...

Our base cage prices are on our site for a quick reference. If your looking for a quote on a custom cage, feel free to PM me or call me and I can break it down for you.
