Besides being less than attractive, the
stock cage sure didnít give me the warm and fuzzies that it would hold up
well in a serious roll over. I wanted to stay as light as possible, and
didnít want to take up any of the limited bed space with bars that attach to
the bed or rear frame. The roll cage that caught my eye was made by Hot Ride
4 U. The cage is computer designed and tested before the first bend is made.
It has a good amount cross bracing for added strength without adding so much
that the additional weight will start affecting performance.
The fit and finish of the Hot Ride roll
cage is nice and I have received lots of positive compliments on the cage
since the install. A few things I would change if I were to do it again is
to add another whip flag mount on the passenger side, and I would change the
way the shoulder harnesses mount so they wrap around the tube behind the
seats instead of bolting to a tab.
