Thats probably the most complete cage ive seen in a jk. Well done. Really like how you tied it all together not just to the body.

Thanks I've learned a few thing since the 90's building jeep. The guy who fabricated the cage does a great job. I gave him some must haves and then left everything else to him.

Did you use all that tubing on the trailer?
How much weight did you gain?
What was the tube? diameter/thickness?

I would hope not that trailer looks to have over 400ft of tube on it. 1.75 x .120 wall is 2.089lbs fer foot.

No. I purchased them in bulk with the shop owner to get a discount I'm not sure how much I've gained in weight.

It's 1.75" x 0.120 DOM from USA
