    There are a few guys on here that have the S&W cage. I'm sure they'll post up some info for you.

    Here are some pics of mine, not to visible, but I can take some with the top down if you need them. Mine is a factory roll bar with a Smitty front cage add on and I built the rear add ons for the kids. There are provisions to think about when building a cage. Like for me, I built mine so I could still fold down my soft top and I made it a 2 piece on the lower part of the rear hoop so I can take it in and out. When using the factory rollbar you have to tilt the front cage back to get it in and the rear of the cage restricts that movement. Just my thoughts and experience with building one. Do a search on roll cages and you will find many designs if you are to have one built.

    How about an email address. You should really pony up and become a member though. As they say " a pic is worth a thousand words ". You are really missing out on a lot of great ideas that we all have and share with pics here on CK5.

    Here is a pict of my s&w cage there are a few more in my gallery. I did add some bars for the seats to mount to and the door bar option swings open when you remove the pin. Love the kit because I do not have a bender but do have grinder/welder.
    I still cant believe how much snow was at the rubicon on memorial and how much is at the Dusy Ersham still.

    how much room with that S&W kit. Room inside the blazer that is. Can you fit the dash over it or do you have to take it off.
