Genright vs. Poison Spyder Roll Cage

Looking into getting a new complete roll cage for my 03 tj. Both of these kits seem to be well made and are offered as a DIY kit or fully welded kit. So I have a few questions on the two.

1) Which one seems to have the better construction/better strenght?
2) Why does Genrights fully welded cage cost $1000 more than Poison Spyders fully welded cage? Just because of the name? Poison spyder only charges $400 extra for the fully welded version, while Genright charges $1000.
3) If I get the un-welded cage, how much would the average shop charge to weld it all together? I only have basic/beginner welding experience and my first major project probably shouldnt be with something as important as a roll cage.
4) Is there really any major difference, because either one will be a substantial improvement over the factory setup?
5) Does it basically boil down to aesthetics?

Genright:
TJ Roll Cage, Roll bar
TJ Roll Cage, Roll bar

Poison Spyder:
Jeep TJ Lazer Fit Full Cage Kits | Jeep TJ Roll Bar | Jeep TJ Roll Cage | Poison Spyder Customs
Jeep TJ Welded Full Cages | Jeep TJ Roll Bar | Jeep TJ Roll Cage | Poison Spyder Customs


Thank you for any input!

For what they want you can have a chassis shop do one to your specs....or, buy a bender and do it yourself.

Do u have a local offroad/fab shop? My local one said he could build me a basic custom cage for 2 grand out the door. It may be something worth looking into yourself.

Not to pimp outside of the vendor area but I might be able to help with a couple of your questions.

I suspect the reason ours costs less for the fully welded version is due to our "Lazer-Fit" feature, wherein all the tubes are CNC laser notched and NC-bent, with assembly guides laser etched right onto the tubes. This makes the assembly process a lot easier and faster. We can have one of our full cages assembled and tacked together in the Jeep within 45 minutes, not including finish-welding. You don't have to spend a bunch of time grinding, notching, fitting, etc. If you buy the un-welded version, this should also translate to savings if you have a welding shop install it and pay by the hour. If you'd like to see the install procedure prior to purchasing, you can download the install instructions for the un-welded kit from its page on our website.

I won't knock the quality of the Gen-Right kit. I'll assume they use all .120 wall DOM tubing like we do (some cage manufacturers use weaker HREW).

If you have any questions about the product or installation, please give our sales department a call at 951-849-5911 or email at sales@poisonspyder.com.

It actually gets strapped to a pallet upside down, and shipped via truck freight. I'll PM you a ship quote. Don't want to turn your thread into a vendor thread LOL...

It does fit under the stock soft top and most aftermarket soft tops we've seen. However you do have to move the little bracket for the soft top bows over from your stock roll bar to the PS cage. We do not yet have the option to include that bracket but we will at some point in the future. Hope this helps.

I cheated and used the Rock Hard bolt in kit....

Jeep TJ









You can also get a pivoting frame tie in kit..




The factory one is stronger than you think this is my Jeep after it was rolled by my god son on an off ramp...so for my build I added a little to it..
