    I WANT TO PUT IN A FRAME MOUNTED ROLL CAGE BUT WAS WONDERING HOW TO FASTEN IT TO THE FRAME. SHOULD IT BE BOLTED OR WELDED DIRECTLY TO THE FRAME? AND WILL EITHER WAY PASS TRAIL RIDE TECH INSPECTIONS?

    Just mounting the cage to the floorboards will satisfy most tech inspections. They really just want to see some tubing over your read and tied to something reasonably solid.
    Welding directly to the frame is the best and stiffest way to go, but you'll pick up a good bit of vibration. Mounting with a bushing assembly is a pretty good way to go. I welded tabs to the base plates and ran them through slots in the floor boards. Then bolted the bushings in and ran to the frame. That way it isolates a little and is removable. It works pretty well.
