    To add on to that question, do you tie the cage into the frame or not. On another forum that I read it seems to be split 50/50. Some say if you tie it into an unboxed frame you will crack the frame. ??? :thinking:

    There are plenty of posts that discuss how to install a cage. There are pros and cons for both methods, I recommend doing a search and reading the other threads.

    In my opinion unless you are racing at high speeds I would not recommend tying it into the frame. If you are doing some basic off roading I don't feel there is a need to tie it into the frame. Like you said earlier this is split 50/50. Smittybuilt used to make them I wasn't able to find one on their web site. :D
