Jeep Cherokee 4x4 -Interior Roll Cage-Video Tour
This is my 1999 Jeep Cherokee. Recently we have been installing an interior roll cage. The work is being done by Wayne Howze at the Offroad Connection in Fultondale, Alabama. Wayne has been fabricating for years. I used quite a bit of research for the design of this cage. I think it's important to point out this will NOT be used for Jeepspeed or any other structured race. The stickers and numbers are purely cosmetic. My primary purpose for this rig is a trail machine and rock crawler in the Southeast U.S. The majority of the tube work done was with 1.75" x .120" wall HREW tubing. In addition, there is some 1" tubing used for the armrests and 3/4" used for the middle vertical supports of the windshield frame. There are six down tubes that tie into the body and frame through 1/4" steel plates and using 1/2" grade 8 hardware. (2) for the A pillar. (2) for the B pillar and (2) for the C pillar. The frame has previously been reinforced (tip to tail) with HD Offroad Engineering frame stiffeners. The cage will be pewter gray by me sometime in the near future. -----------------------------------------0||||0---------------------------- ---------------------- **This is not a racing Jeep or JeepSpeed related machine. Do not let the numbers and stickers fool you. It is simply a southern trail monster and it loves it!** **For further information and pictures please visit: http://deanomurray.blogspot.com/ Motor Bay:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y98kEx_4BE0 Inline 6 4.0 242ci.
