Looking for a roll cage

theres a few threads on this but their all at least 4 years old. im looking to buy a pre fabed roll cage online and weld it up myself. i cant seem to find a good looking cage for my specific bronco. most says any year bronco (fabrication required). i want one made for an 88 bronco, weld right in. anyone know of any sites/ has anyone orderd from a site and been happy with the results?

if i wasnt planning on another winter project, front winch bumper, rear tire carrier bumper, i'd be using some of my bonus from work to go towards one of these.

Have you seen Bronco Bob's cages? Fullsize Bronco cages start about halfway down the roll cage page. They say they can adjust the cages to your needs & to give them a call. I haven't bought anything of his yet, but am considering adding his front kit to my 4 point.

I guess I should have added that I'm not pro or race. I just use my rig for basic beer drinking wheeling. I just want some basic saf ety if something were to happen. Looks like all those are all super high quality builds. I'm llooking to spend about $500-800 on a cage shipped in pieces. By the way ur rig is bitchin

Bob's is looking good though. I'll have to look into that a bit more

I would say if your not wanting to pull your dash .But just have the A, and B pillar down tubes hug right in front of the dash, Bob,s would work good for that.Kevins are more extensive race worthy cages. And have been rolled tested in 2 different bronco,s without a bent tube.Just sheetmetal damage.I would highly recommend using some 4"x4" floor plates and tying to the frame underneath.Otherwise the cage could just blow thru the thin sheetmetal floor in a rollover.jmho. :) Ya Kemical still living in Molalla Ore.

yea iv already had a cage save my life once so i know the importance of having it done right. im planning on buying the majority of it already bent and done. i can add x bars and roof bars on myself. ppipeing is pretty cheap when u only have to notch it.
