Cage Swap and flat fenders
I now have two friends with YJs, one a 93, the other an 89. While working on the 89 today, I noticed that the sport style cage simply bolts to the floor. I can't remember offhand with the 93 though if it's bolted in or welded in. For some reason I could've sworn I saw part of the 93 was bolted in and the other part was welded in.
If it is simply bolt in, will an 87-91 cage bolt directly in place of the 92-95 cage? Also, are the sloped bars on the 87-91 YJs welded to the main hoop or can they be unbolted to make it easier to transport the cage?
And no, the guy with the 89, although he's about safety doesn't want the 92-95 cage with the shoulder belts so a simple trade is out of the question.
Finally, I know I've seen articles on here about how to do a flat fender conversion to a YJ, but I can't seem to find them. Can anyone help?
