Question Interior TinTop cage ideas/pics?

I have a tintop and it is pretty rough, so I am not too worried about bashing up the body and getting body damage because I think it looks badass.

I have a simple cage in it already that isn't made for the rig, but it would protect just me and the passenger in a light roll/flop.

I really want something for the inside with a rear spreader bar obviously so I can mount harness' and violently roll it down a hill. Yes I am going to wreck glass and metal, but my occupants will be safe which is the most important thing to me. I want to run 3 racing seats, so that I can have one person sit in the back middle so they still have a view.

Ultimately the body will get so beat that it will get chopped up and more likely turn into a zuk buggy..... wayyyy down the road. Possibly some rub rails because I wheel in new england on private land and dirtbike trails.

I have a friend who is a fabber and does great work for an awesome price.

So hit me with some pics/ideas guys.

Somebody makes an internal cage for TT's. Look up "full dom cage for hardtop" for inspiration.

If you are looking for an internal cage, the best kit for the buck IMO is Dave Sport. It is a real tight fit. All 120 wall and simple. Petroworks make one also now, but it is .095 and 120 wall, and they don't ship it yet.

i have seen davesport cage in action.it didn't hold up too well when talking full force hit from about 10 feet going over backwards and landing on the driver side.
if you want protection have a cage made by someone that knows what they are doing and will do it right.not a bolt in cage made to look good for mall cruising.

check with scott at rock 4x fab.

Yeah, I have looked at the dave sport one and it looks a little wimpy too me and it really lacks triangulation.

I was more looking for pics so I can go to my buddy with some sort of an idea, or just let him do his thing, I am sure it will turn out great.

I tend to rage on my rigs and I will more than likely violently flip it at some point.
