Bolt-in roll cage questions

I'm debating a bolt-in roll cage for a 2013/14 JK. Around here it's mudding, not rock crawling -- no rocks to speak of. Basically I only really want the cage so that I can put the windshield down and still have the jeep look good. (Without a full cage I think the JK looks rather... odd... with the windshield down).

My requirements:

I don't want to cut or damage any interior or dash panels.
Must bolt to the sides of the dash -- no through-the-dash for me.
Must retain stock tweeter location
Must have a clean look with the windshield folded down.

(How does the windshield attach when folded back up, btw?

Charles.

Charles,

That is going to be tough especially for the new 2013/14. When you lower the windshield, the a-pillar goes with windshield. Why are you wanting to lower it anyways? Yes you can but Jeep didn't really design it to be, well user friendly.

Right. Which is why I want a roll cage, so the A-pillar remains on the jeep. Lots of beaches around here to drive on. I'd never do it on the street or highway, but come on, top off, windshield down, doors off, on the beach with a few cases of beer in the back, a portable grill, and a hot girlfriend? Yes please.

Have you looked at what is involved in lowering the windshield? Major pain and not worth it. Just my opinion. Do what you wanna do.

Edit: sup Jason!
