No-Weld Cages for Jeeps.

No-weld cages for Jeeps
Why should safety only be for those with the capacity to weld? After all, everyone's head is equally crushable. Whether you're scaling an off-camber ledge with a slinky suspension or tooling down the highway at 65 mph, there's a chance something bad can happen and your Jeep will wind up on its roof. Your best safety bet is on a fully welded and gusseted rollcage that is tied into the frame or chassis structure. However, you can't discount the increased protection from a good, quality bolt-in cage. And depending on who is building your custom-welded cage, the bolt-in deal may even be stronger. Here are some of the cages on the market for Jeeps ranging from flatfenders to ZJs.
