    does any body have the roll cage kit. for the rear rollbar don't it bolt together, if so could it just be welded together. would this offer enough protection and strength.
    thanks for any info

    I couldn't find anything about rollcages on their website, all I could find info on was the rollbars, but maybe I wasn't looking in the right place.

    I have a <a target="_blank" href=http://communities.msn.com/Ryans1972Blazer/picsofryansblazer.msnw?Page=5>6 point cage</a> in my K/5.
    I fabricated the back part, and the front part is the smittybuilt cage kit. I had to measure, and notch the tubing, and then weld it. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Jared,

    I've got their cage....the rear may have been a "bolt together" style....but mine has been weleded at all the connections....I also have the optional front bar set.....so it's a 6-point deal.

    Believe it or not, with the top removed, it is still possible to remove the entire cage even though it's all welded.
