Definitely. My point was the stock bars are strong enough for most jeepers and the benefits of a cage are greatly outweighed by the cons in most situations for most jeepers.

X2 nothing does more damage to your jeep than a bad spotter. I half-cracked my side steps this weekend due to a bozo spotter who couldn't distinguish a twig from a log.

But this goes back to our original discussion. A stupid spotter can put you into that nasty situation you didn't expect to be in. My point is, a stock rig (cage wise) will protect you sufficiently most of the time. None of us can predict a stupid spotter, or else we wouldn't get into these situations. If a spotter is telling you to come forward and you slam a log that you couldn't see, there is no preventing that. You can only prevent the future (ie, never listening to them again.)

This is 100% true (read my post regarding the stock cage).
