that is cool. The only problem I could see would be getting one for each vehicle. I know that if you were to do that, that I would have to buy one for both my cars.

true. I think I am done buying cars for a little while. I am sure to have plenty of fun with the 2 I have. Keep us updated on the roll cages though. I think they could definitely sell if you get them done.

a cage would be more durable then just a bar. you can make the cage go up over the shock towers and all that stuff that way if you land funky it will hit the cage and not the part.

you make the cage so it will fit under the body unless you just want to ride with just the cage, i think they look pretty neat with the cage only.

It just makes it stronger.

or your could somehow make it so that cage is outside the body, so your body will always be purty
