    I did a search and came up with nothing. Does anyone know of a manufacturer of some prefabbed internal roll cages?

    I don't mind welding the pieces in place. I would be nice to have some pre bent tubing though.

    It seems Off Road Solutions is out of business.

    I cannot imagine doing suspension and not having some kind of protection in the event of a roll over!

    I hope I posted this in the correct section.....

    I'd say, anything is better than nothing (for the most part).

    I had a cage in our jeep and it wasn't even tied into the frame. It had out-riggers that supported it but the tubes weren't actually attached to the frame. It was all attached to the tub which is extremely flexy when offroading.

    And, the thing was tested...twice and held up pretty damn good. In fact, the tub bent in the back a bit....cage just laughed.
