Samurai Roll Cage



Roll Cage

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 protection.

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.
