    I don't have one, but the people I know who have worked with them say they are not worth installing. Example: A guy couldn't get the cage to line up exactly, so he hit it with a hammer. It dented. Not talking about a hard hit here, just a tap to move it momentarily to get a bolt lined up.

    you sure it was a jegs cage? a friend of mine put one in his pickup and its all 1.75X.120 DOM. from what ive heard it takes some time to get them to fit well but for the price it seems worth it.

    sounds interesting, and $150 for a six point cage is a good deal at today's steel prices. I'd love to see a picture- I couldn't find one on their site. If it requires welding anyway, a little extra fab is no big deal, right?

    Would like to know how tight they fit inside the cab, and pictures are worth a thousand words.

    That's what I'm thinking. I've heard a rumor that S&W makes the cages, not sure if that's true or not but they don't make junk.
