Poly Performance Jeep Wrangler TJ Sport Cage - Pre-FabricagedPosted in How To: Body Chassis on November 1, 2008
Leave it to the sleazy lawyers to throw a wrench in the works. Without those suite-wearing leeches we'd be able to tell you all about Poly Performance's sweet TJ rollcage kit. But since a company has to negotiate a mine field of testing, certification, and anal probing before it can "legally" claim to offer a rollcage, we'll instead introduce you to Poly Performance's new TJ Sport Cage. You read between the lines.
Regardless of the legalese mumbo jumbo, in the world of ready-made cages for Wranglers we think Poly Performance offers one of the most attractive and thoughtfully executed examples out there. And coming from a company fast-becoming known for its products' clean lines and functional nature, we can't say we're surprised.
Although the name, Bolt-In Sport Cage implies that you can assemble it with handtools, in reality it's a weld-together kit that you can bolt in and out of the Jeep once the cage is assembled. So there. The kit completely replaces the stock rollbar with pre-cut, coped, and bent 1 3/4-inch, 0.120-wall tubing. The tubes come labeled, which really helps in assembly, and the fitment was great. We followed our buddy, Jay Miller at TAG Motorsports in Escondido, California, as he installed the Poly Performance Sport Cage in his '97 TJ, along with the optional shoulder harness bar and front frame tie-in kit. The finished product not only looks great, but if the Jeep ever rolls on top of some blood sucking lawyer we're sure Miller will remain unharmed.
