A Better Roll Cage

I am in the middle of a Jeep build. I am about ready to haul the parts to the painter. Then I thought about adding a "better" roll cage. I am not interested in a complete replacement (like Poison Spyder or GenRight), but one that retrofits the existing one.

I am considering the AtoZ Sport Cage Addition (front and rear sections). Does anyone have any experience with it or have a better suggestion?

Ok. How about this? Does anyone have experience with any other weld-in kit?

I actually read through that thread. Several of a companies mentioned are either no longer in business or no longer making cages. I wanted to get an update perspective.

So far, in my research, I like AtoZ. Zach (with AtoZ) has been very responsive and up-front with me about what will be required to install his product.

I have no experience with the roll cages but based on the quality of fab work and beefy-ness of my AtoZ sliders, I'd definitely be considering them. Fair price and made in USA as well.

On the trail a couple weeks ago and the leader who was right in front of me flopped over, not a violent roll or anything but he has the kit below and there was no issues afterwards, even flipped it back on the rubber with the winch attached to the passenger side bar. The one that you have above looks like it has more supports so I'm sure it would do a fine job.
