roll cage

HEy guys, ive been spending alot of time here looking through some threads about roll cages, or "beefing up" the stock roll cage and such. And i think i would like to fab up one in my YJ, but i was wondering if someone could help me with the names of some of the supports, i kept reading about "A-pillar, B-pillar" and things like that, and tbh i dont know what that is referring to. But i was looking for a little insight. Any help, opinions, anything would be awesome!
Thanks!
-Sam

Well I can tell you from experience,you need a lot of stuff to fab a cage.You should look at some cages online like Genright and there are others.You can get a kit for a little more then the price you buy straight steel for and it has all the bends,cuts and you still get to put it together mine came in like 40 pieces from Genright.I didnt have to make one grind.I got a bender 300$ a die set for 1 1/2" 300$ notcher 250$ and added on to the genright cage.
A pillar is at the dash line going vertical,B pillar behind the side of the seat going vertical and C yep you guessed it in the back they are the floor to roof bars.My opinion is buy a kit making your own is fun but a lot of work its really hard to make 2 of every thing in opposite.

I could see where it would be pretty hard to make the exact same thing twice. But what about adding supports to the stock roll cage ? obviously it wouldn't be as protective as a full cage, but it wouldn't hurt any would it ? and it would give a little more protection.

They have some weld in/ bolt in kits that you add to the cage you currently have for around $300 bux, I personally like the kit M.O.R.E. has. WCK200 '97 - '06 TJ Bolt in Sport Cage

you can also buy spreader bars and frame ties in just look around the site a little.
