When plumber bills cage folded up he was going 10MPH and rolled down a hill. If you notice the rear of the cage did not fold as it was supported. It put him in the hospital with a concusion. Hope you plan on coming down from the top front of the cage to the front of the frame. It's not as much about the wall thickness as it is the geometry of the cage.


This.
It doesn't matter if you make the cage from 2" solid bar, if you don't triangulate it, it will fold like a house of cards.

I dont get what the big beal with the front hope design is as almost all buggy are caged this way.. yes plumerbills folded because it was a four seater with a huge open span with no support.

A good percentages of buggy's utilizing the hoop design is a matter of economics than being the correct way to build a cage in compression.

The front 2 bars go to the bumper....They un bolt so if i ever need to take the whole cage off i can.

I agree Rick I think I over caged it but it is safe and I would roll it without a worry lol . Hell if I ever see you in the woods me and you'll get it out and be the first to roll it.
