Get one custom built. Don't skimp on something that might save your life. Add some support to the rear section too.

Here is mine, and it has taken some serious abuse. Rear overhead spreader, side rails, full chromo front half, dash spreader, windshield support, through the dash, top spreaders, B pillar to C pillar triangulation, etc. Has taken a backflip, ass over teakettle, and numerous flops with flying colors.

Gonna go ahead and agree. Avoid those bolt in kits...you want a real cage, if you're going to upgrade, make sure this upgrade won't end up killing you.

There's a lot of info out there on cages. if you know of a good race or offroad shop they should be able to fab something up that won't endanger your life.

I never get tired of looking at this rig. Do you have any more pics of your cage?

By the Looks of your rig, you enjoy rolling over?

can't see the lower A pillar of the cage, but I assume it goes to the frame?

Lance, it's time to just give up on the tub and go with a full on buggy frame my friend.

As stated, go with something custom. It ain't worth risking your life to save a few bucks in this department. Sure there are a number of companies that put out "kit" cages like Gen-Right and PolyPerformance, and they are nice cages. But for the $1k they ask for them, you can get a much nicer cage the way you want it to look and function which makes your rig much more personal.
