No one selling a YJ family cage around you?

There has been one on Craigslist here for about 2 months now.

Portland Oregon area

from what i just quick searched on google it will only fit with serious modification but what you need to find is a "family" style roll bar out of a 92-95 YJ which is basically a direct bolt in

I guess it was a modified cage.
Says "sport" but looks to cover the rear for you too.

Looking at rear safety I would add more support to the rear of any "family" cage cross bar up top at least. Some gussets.

Any hard roll and the cage won't stand up to much.


Check out this item on Craigslist:
