Opinions on Cage

I have got it down to 2 different cage that I think I like. But I would like some opinions for you guy here. I'm going to be replacing the stock cage after I get the Rhino back from being fix, after the roll that I had last weekend. So I thought it was a good reason to replace it. One is made by DG rhinos which I have email him and ask him some and I like the look of their cages. The other is a Pro-1 cage that I found.

Here is a pic of the Pro-1 cage


Here is a pic of the DG rhino cage




The DG rhino cage is three inches lower then stock and the Pro-1 is four inches lower. Like I said I'm just looking for some opinions right now. I'm not sure what I'm go to do yet.


Thanks

Travis

They both look like nice cages. I DG cage looks to be stronger in places than the Pro One.

Hey Travis,

I build cages and each of them are custom to what the customer wants. Height, style, grab bar location, etc. I think the two cages that you are looking at are both nice cages. I think they should be able to or offer you some custom options. I'm not one that likes "out of the box" cages and I think they should be the way the customer would like it. It kind of gives it that custom look instead of all of them looking the same. Like I said, I think the two you are looking at are both very nice cages but ask them if they will build it the way you want it. Also, make sure it has cross bracing for side to side support.

If you would like to see my cages for some ideas you can go to my website.

I'm not trying to sell you a cage just my .02 on cages.

Good luck on your cage.

The dg cage is way better than the pro one, I really like the way they did the door bar and skins.makes it way easy to get in and out while still offering
great leg protection.
One thing I cant see on the dg, but can on the pro one, is the rear attaches to the frame, you don't want a 4 seat cage that just attaches at the bed, no protection for the rear passengers like that.

Kinda depends on how tall you are too. 4" might be a little too short. I know it would for me.
