    Anyone own a cage from these folks? I am thinking of buying one if a local place to me doesn't work out... http://www.essentiallyoffroad.com/

    It looks good but it doesn't list what kind and size material they used, and I wonder how much the 8-point kit costs...

    Looking at it I gotta say I don't like it. They claim to bend them to tightly fit the interior contours, but it looks very boxy and too square to my eyes. I'd choose S&W over that any day. Just my opinion though.

    I can have someone ship me one of these for like $25 with his business account from back there. S&W wants like $125... so um, no way!! Besides I will keep my hard top on so it'll look fine when painted black... /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Only thing I don't like is no triangulation. Looks like that thing would probably fold right up with a hard side hit. All square joints does not make for a very ridgid cage...
