Anyone have experience with this cage? Is it just crap or worthwhile?
:doh: forgot you do tooI went with the synergy A, B, and C pillar kits for my JKU. First thing I'd mention is don't think you can do this if you've never done something like this before. I found a local guy that has done a few of these and make tweaks to it to make it even better. My impressions is that it definitely makes a driving difference, meaning it really stiffens the jeep up. This has helped make the jeep feel more planted on the trail too. With this stiffness, at low speed/low RPM I feel a small increase in drivetrain vibRation under my feet. To ensure ease of use, I had the windshield bar and both harness bars setup to be removable. My guy also removed the C pillar crossmember and replaced it with DOM. Also, more triangulation was done. He made a few tweaks which made a great kit even better. One tweak was him melting/molding the AC ducts vs. cutting and using duct tape. If you look at the price and coverage vs others, I came to the decision it was the best platform. PSC: doesn't attach to the windshield and bolts in. Doesn't tie to frame Hardrock: relies on cupplers and ties into firewall. No frame tie in and bolts in Genright: full replacement. Optional frame tie ins. Priced close to custom cage Genright with frame tie ins is probably the best (other than full custom) but the price is way high and the full replacement was a bit too much for me. Synergy was a great balance. Next step for mine is to take the B cross member out and replace it. My installer is purchasing a new tube bender. What he's gonna do is take 2 piece of DOM and sandwich them with flat plate. This'll allow for holes ect. To match exactly what's in there now but MUCH stronger.
