Full Scrambler Cage

A full cage for my Scrambler is on my to do list -- or more accurately, my find someone-to-do list. Is anyone running a full cage on their Scrambler? If so, can you post a picture? Also, who's the best fabricator in the area to create a strong, fairly precise cage -- that won't put a guy in the poorhouse? Thanks for your help.

Unlimited off road is a few minutes north of you. I was in there on friday and they all kinds of cool projects going on. They could easily handle your cage.

I know we are a long drive from you, but we have done quite a few Scrambler cages now.

We can do either one piece cages for full hard/soft tops, or a cage with a removable rear section for a half cab top. If you want to give a call for a quote I am almost sure we can give you a better price even with the cost of gas over here.

I am trailering my jeep to JCR for some work in the next couple of weeks.

They do great work, and at a great price

shuddup.
I fixed the alternator issue, no more elevated idle control device needed, and I get way better gas mileage.

cage

call Cooters Off Road in Midland,MI. Jason does great work and has some very high end shop tools to do the job right. It would be worth a call to him.

How soon are you wanting it? If you can wait till summer I'd probably do it for quite a bit less than most shops. I've got a bender and a good welder and will have built a nice full cage for my Scrambler(actually building the whole rig) by then to prove my capabilities. Just another option if you're interested.

I do my own work but at one time or a nether. I have been in most of the shops in this state. If I were to trust any one to build a structural element as important as a safety cage to put my family in it would half to be JCR Of what I saw of there work and there welds I would make the drive.
