OR Fab, opinions sport cage.

I am considering the OR Fab sport cage for my YJ. I am attaching a link to the site. Anyone have any opinions on this particular item? Thanks in advance for any input.

Looking at the YJ one, I can't tell if it's a bolt on or a weld in cage. It also doesn't (anywhere I can find) what tubing it's made of (the TJ kit is .120 DOM, but...) and I can't see how the stanchions tie it. Without a tub tie in at the floor board I'm not sure how much extra protection the cage would provide.

I put this one in last spring and has some better details of what I'm describing (not the same thing for the same price and it's a TJ sport cage, but...)

We didn't leave you YJ owners out. This kit is a complete bolt-in.

Good point about the floor tie in. Do you have any opinions of the Rock Hard 4x4 sport cage. Rock Hard 4x4 Parts Ultimate Sport Cage - Jeep Wrangler YJ 1987-1995 .It has options for floor and frame tie ins. I am looking for a bolt together cage since I don't have access to a welder and not really wanting to trust my rusty welding skills on something as important as a roll cage.

Lots of guys have those kits Jeff. I would def tie into the tub. My cage had the option to do the frame tie ins too but I opted not to.

I figure the "sport cage" is a one trick (or flop) pony and the frame tie in would just do more damage to the jeep than provide any additional safety.

Those stanchions that just screw into the dash side don't (IMO) do anything except look nice.

Maybe call OR Fab and check what tubing they use and see if they do tub tie ins and cost out the spreader bars and windshield crossbar?
