his is probably one of
the first mods you should do for your Samurai if you plan on
frequent off-road usage. I know I procrastinated for quite a
while before I finally decided to get a cage built.

I had a new front hoop
made with a bar that hugs the shape of the dash tying the two sides
of the hoop together. Two bars extend back from there to
factory hoop. From there I have two legs that end in the bed
of the Samurai. I am thinking about adding a bar up the middle
between the front hoop and factory hoop for some extra rock
It'll look good in the
fall with no targa and the windshield folded down.
Since the cage was
welded in the vehicle I decided against pulling it out to paint for
fear it may be really hard to get it back in. So I taped
everything off the best I could and gave it two coats of primer and
3 coats of yellow.
