Poison Spyder Bolt-Together Trail Cage Kits for Jeep JK



The Poison Spyder Bolt-Together Trail Cage Kit (patent pending) is the strongest add-on cage you can bolt in to your JK. Designed to strengthen your Jeep's existing roll bar, the Poison Spyder Trail Cage Kit fortifies the driver and passenger area by adding a robust cage fabricated from CNC laser notched, NC-bent DOM steel tubing and CNC laser cut, precision brake-formed 3/16" plate steel components. When shopping for a cage kit for your Jeep, make sure that any product you are considering uses stronger DOM, "Drawn Over Mandrel" structural tubing rather than the cheaper welded seam tubing that some manufacturers use.

A Better Bolt-Together Method
Bolt-in cage kits need a way to join the structural tubing components of the kit. Popular kits on the market today use either a knuckle-style clamp or a simple tube insert with crush bolt. Both methods have their weaknesses. For instance the large knuckle style clamps may look beefy, but they're still pre-loading a clamping force onto a rather thin wall tube, creating a dangerous stress riser right at the junction of two tube members—where the cage is likely to see its biggest stresses. Poison Spyder uses a system of CNC machined, solid steel interlocking tube couplers that are placed inline along the run of a tube member, rather than at the joints of the cage. These tube clamps are placed where the cage is not likely to see side loads, however they are still stronger than the knuckle style clamp in a side-loading situation. At the tube junctions are the high quality, laser-notched, professionally welded tube junctions you would find in a custom fabricated cage. The interlocking tube couplers are also lower profile, with the same outside diameter as the tubing itself, so it yields a sleeker, less "bolt-in" appearance.



Full-Height A-Pillar Assembly
The A-Pillar section of the Poison Spyder JK Trail Cage Kit extends all the way to the floor of the JK with a single piece of CNC laser cut, precision brake-formed 3/16" plate steel. The A-Pillar hugs the contours of the Jeep's dash ends perfectly, making the best use of the limited space available for an A-Pillar that does not hinder legroom or ease of entry. The A-Pillar bolts not only to the floor, but to the forward door post via a 1/2" thick strengthening rib, and also to the dash structure itself. The lower end of the A-Pillar is fortified with heavy duty gusseting. Competitors' cage kits either do not include full-height A-Pillars (stopping at the bottom of the dash) or require the purchase of a separate bolt-on lower piece.



Full DOM Tube Door Headers
The Poison Spyder JK Trail Cage Kit includes full DOM replacements for the cheap stock header bars. The DOM tube structure of the header bars is integrated into the overal cage design to form a complete, well thought-out cage structure. Some competing bolt-in cages retain the use of the stock header bars, clamping the added-on components to the weak thin wall stock tubing.

DOM Tube Dash and Windshield Crossbars
The Poison Spyder JK Trail Cage Kit includes DOM tube crossbars just above the dash and at the top of the windshield, to provide structural rigidity and side-load strength to the cage. The upper windshield crossbar is compatible with the popular sPOD power disctribution system switch panel, as well as the OE sun visors. The dash bar tighltly hugs the top of the Jeep's dash, but is compatible with the factory tweeter speakers. By using Poison Spyder's interlocking tube coupler system, these horizontal members of the cage bolt together while preserving the strength of a traditional welded cage.



Plate Steel Center Stringer
The center overhead stringer on the Poison Spyder JK Trail Cage Kit is fabricated from CNC laser cut, brake-formed 3/16" plate steel. Other cages on the market use two pieces of tubing for the center stringers, but Poison Spyder's 3/16" plate steel piece provides ultimate overhead protection, great looks, and a convenient flat mounting surface for items like CB radios, switches, dome lights, etc. The top of the stringer "box" is open, for easy access for wiring, or as a convenient place to store maps under a soft top. The 4-Door JK specific kit includes a matching rear center stringer, to tie the OE center and rear crossbars securely together.

Weld-In C-Pillar Kit
For those looking to further enhance the JK 4-Door Trail Cage installation, the Poison Spyder C-Pillar Kit (sold separately) ads strength to the rear passenger portion of the OE cage. This kit must be welded in to the OE cage at the top, but it bolts in at the lower end. The C-Pillar kit consists of CNC laser cut lengths of 1.75" OD, .120" wall DOM tubing, and engineered foot plates that are fabricated from CNC laser cut, brake-formed 3/16" plate steel. Convenient indexing tabs and slots are provided where the DOM tube connects with the foot plate, making assembly quick and easy.




Optional Entry Grab Handles
Entry Grab Handles may be added to your JK Trail Cage Kit, by selecting it from the options when adding to your cart. These handles are NC-bent, 1.25" OD DOM tubing, and designed to aid ease-of-entry as well as provide a solid grab point for driver and passenger while four-wheeling. The handles will come already welded to the Trail Cage.



All of the new JK Trail Cage products are available directly through Poison Spyder or through any of our Authorized Poison Spyder Dealers.

For anyone interested in seeing this cage being installed, we did an install here at the shop the other day for one of the magazines to photograph. We took quite a few of our own shots and posted them in a Facebook album. Check them out HERE.

Here's a couple of news tid-bits regarding the JK Trail Cage kits:

First, the 2011-2012 versions are just about done. Here's a sneak peak of one installed. The R&D and test-fitting is done, they're just waiting for a slot in the production schedule (I wish I could give you a specific date for that but I can't yet).





On another note, we're now offering the JK 4-Door Trail Cage Kit bundled with FREE C-Pillar Kit. Purchase this Bundle to get the Poison Spyder 4-Door JK Trail Cage Kit AND the JK 4-Door C-Pillar Kit—at the same price as purchasing the Trail Cage by itself! That's right, you're getting the C-Pillar Kit, which normally sells for $149.00, for FREE! This bundle deal won't run forever, but we'll leave it up for a few weeks at least. We'll post a note with some grace period if/when we decide to end the offer. CLICK HERE for the bundle offer on our website.

FINALLY!!

2011-2013 JK Trail Cage Kits are NOW READY!! Yeah I know, back in July I posted that they were "almost done". Well they got caught up in a series of delays including our big move, equipment procurements and learning curves, plus a seriously heavy product development load. But they're finally done, so thanks to everyone for your patience!



Pricing is the same as for the 2077-2010 models, at $849 for 2-door and $899 for 4-door. Here are links to them on our website:
2011-2013 JK Bolt-Together Trail Cage Kit, 4-door
2011-2013 JK Bolt-Together Trail Cage Kit, 2-door
...or you may purchase through any of our Authorized Poison Spyder Dealers!

2 questions regarding a jku install

1. How does the soft top fit back on? Is there a hole in the tube that allows the plastic pieces to screw through the tube?

2. Why do you recommend install prior to paint
