    is that Cache's ZJ from JF?

    Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely, in a
    Well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways,
    Totally worn out, shouting “HOLY SHIT, WHAT A
    RIDE!”

    I know it's not finished but it looks to me that it needs more triangulation..... What are your plans?

    I got around to working on the cage some more.I got to searching and reading up on cage builds and I read that the C hoop on Cams ZJ ripped the floorboard cause it just welded to floor so came up with the ideal of puting tubing to the fender wells and sandwiching it to make it stronger.If u look at the pic its the red lines the blue is where its just welded to the floor.




    There no room for a X between B hoop and C hoop with out it bing 2in from ur head, so Im going to a V like the E.O.R's cage with gussets..Wat do u guys think?

    Here are the pics you wanted of the cage in my old ZJ. If I was to do it again I would make the cage a little tighter to the roof. It was as tight as we could get it with the head liner in. I then had removed the head liner after the fact. Damn I miss this thing...

    I was just wondering if you thought of an E cage rather than the cage being inside of the rig. I was just wondering because I am about to be at that point in my build and , now this is just my opinion, please constructive criticism is most welcome. I am wanting to do an exo cage just due to the fact that I will have more room inside the rig and then it will still look like a grand cherokee after I roll it. After seeing rhino roll his down the hill, that is triggering me to do an exo cage..

    If I was to do a Exo cage,whick Im not sure yet. I would start from the inside work my way out to tie it all together, Like rstrucks did to his ZJ.To me it would be stronger.I got to finish my A pillars and attach to the factory pillars to make it even stronger.The only reason Im doing the cage is just to stiffen up my ZJ.


    here's rstrucks build thread
