I know you didnt make the front doors but, you should talk the owner into letting you make new ones. I would make them to flow better with the rear doors, like take the top bar and move it up so the back of the front door "flows" into the front of the rear door. Then the top bar would be a mirror image about the B pillar. Other than that (which isn't anything you did) the rest of the cage work looks killer.

Well, Nyxis mentioned the guy has a budget, so he clearly cannot afford to pay the royalties on Rufftoyz Patented Exocage.

personally, I love this setup. I'm 6'5" driving a ZJ and the drivers area is cramped, let alone trying to put in a cage. We were opting for an exo cage, but this dsign is so much more appealing. Even the sunroof opening, as our's is moonroof so it will still be functional.

Those wheels look like american racing stix.

Looks awsome and being 6'4" I can totally see why they would want a partial exo. But is this really drivin on the streets?

I believe that the roof is sandwiched between 2 plates. Much like the floor of Wranglers when people put frame tie-ins to their cage.

Silly question but don't you negate the rubber body mounts when the floor is now tied directly to the frame? Considering doing this on my Willys just wondering what experiences people have with noise and vides and body flex etc afterwards.
