The Rock Hard 4x4 sports cage includes everything from the factory roll bar to the dash and fits factory hard and soft tops. All sports cages are completely bolt-in, you do not remove any of the factory sport cage to install this cage. This means no welding! The 14-gauge mounting plate allows for your CB radio or dome light. All hardware is included, comes unpainted. Made in the USA.
Only things I would have like to see was the wells cleaned up. For the money I think those could look a lot better.
Same size Allen heads would have been nice
Other wise was a good install
Other things that would help
Paper Tempelet for cutting the surrounds for the didn't years.
Primed instead of bare steel.

Perfect for recreational wheeling!
Easy to install, (leave side bars loose until cross and center bars are in place, then put bolts in. This cage will protect in case of an accidental rollover, but the body mount will probably result in major damage. Would recommend the frame attachment kit for serious wheeling. Of course, I wouldn't recommend this for rock climbers.

All the welds and bends look great!

Not all it Should Be.
I actually had the Sport Cage installed simply because my wife wanted 5-point seatbelts when rock crawling. It is a SPORT Cage - not strong enought to be a ROLL cage. The fir is very poor - the fabrication welds actually interfere with the parts fitting together. Where it is mounted and is SUPPOSED to match with the Jeep dash it doesn't even come close - causing deformation and gaps. It comes bare-metal, and must be painted or powder coated for use. Even the powder coater commented on the uneven welds. Since the pictures of this cage on the internet are all partial shots or overview shots that lack detail it is difficult to imagine how it will finally look in your Wrangler... it looks "just barely OK if you care about the details.

Rock hard sport cage
It helps give me piece of mind because my kids ride the trails with me. I love the look and feel.
It's a lot of work to clean prime and paint. Then putting on the side pieces took 3 hr. If you don't put in the door shims it will rub the doors.

Great part...with some caveats
Installation is pretty straightfoward....take your time, dont get frustrated, and alternate tightening opposite bolts to prevent crossthreading.
You'll lose the ability to use the grab bar on the passenger side, and the front speaker on the driver side.
I replaced the included bolts with some hardened steel bolts, which seemed to go in much easier (The machine shop told me the included bolts were of poor quality).
Overall, a great upgrade for your Jeep.

Installed just like the instructions said.
Looks great and makes me feel safer off-roading in my jeep.
Handles make getting in my jeep easier and do not block my view.

Rock Hard Sport Cage
Eveything came together beautifuly. The quality is very high and the instructions were very well written.
Make sure you have everthing in place and all measurements correct. Then and only then should you begin to tighten this as a complete unit.
Best to have someone wrenching on both sides, I did it alone and still nailed it.
I'm very pleased with the Rock Hard Sport Cage.
