I'm running a 12 point cage made from 2" .120 chromoly tied into the A pillars and the frame. In areas where it passes through the floorpan, the pan itself is sandwiched between steel plates bolted together. The bottom plates tie into the frame like so:
The rear supports pass through the rear glass, which has been replaced with lexan. I wanted to keep the rear slider functional.
Regarding interior, it's all there except for the main sound deadening components. The headliner and carpet were removed prior to installing the cage have not been reinstalled. The metal has been coated with bedliner to provide at least a little sound deadening while protecting the metal.
The cage does not make contact with the sheetmetal in any spots.
