I wouldn't risk my life with the stock cage. Purchase an aftermarket one, is you life worth the risk......

Stock cages were put on so manufacturing could meet minimum safety standards. They are fine if you are only going to poke down the road. I don't think 54 qualifies as poking. You would be much much better off getting a good aftermarket cage. You life is worth it.

I could show you, but then I would have to kill you.

The line must be drawn here! This far, no further! And I will make them pay for what they've done!

Seen em for around $500 (not including powder coating). If you are going with the 2 seater cage, they would just bolt on where the stock cage bolts on. 4 seater pretty much the same, with some added attachment points in the rear. Piece of cake actually.

If you are in the So. Cal area, I recommend DG Rhino's.
