    I am no authority on this, but I believe the body mounting points are used attach a cab-cage to a frame.

    Various rollcage articles I have scanned by: Yukon Jack check out his post in the tech forum it was very informative and one of the articles discusses the tieing of the cage to the frame just can't remember which one of the articles it's in but they have great pics/info. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    My front 4 posts bolt to the floor with plates below the floor that are welded to the frame through more tubing. The rear two bars run all the way to the rear "bumper" that is welded to the frame. Seems to work out fine.

    If you look in my webshots album, I bolted the four front floorplates through the floor to the rockslider mounting plates and then ran a brace from that over to the frame. The brace is attached to the floor plates through a poly bushing. On the rear two floorplates I bolted them through the floor to a plate that is attached via a poly bushing to the frame and rear bumper. Pictures are here:
