4 Seater Cage Advice?

I want to buy a four seater cage for my "07". Let me know if I am overly cautious. First of all, I use it mainly for the high dessert and trails.

I feel that the rear part of the cage should be attached to the frame (ie. incorporated into a bumper), not bolted in the bed. Secondly, I feel that the rear bench should be attached to the cage, and not just the bed.

I do not get that crazy, but I always try to do it right, or not at all.

I would appreciate any feedback and or opinions.

I deffinatly agree about the cage attatching to the frame. That in my opinion is the most important thing when shopping for a 4 seat cage.

My favorite 4 seat cage is the full potential. I like the look and construction.

As far as the seat attatching to the cage I really don't know how important that is. I think if you tried to build a frame under the seat and attatched it to the frame it may make the seat sit high and get your kids head close to the upper rails. I don't know but that's what I would worry about.

ive seen many rhinos roll with cage attached to bed, they are fine if the geometry and triangulation is good. those corners of the bed are stronger than you think. i rolled a ford ranger at 55+ in occotillo a couple years back and it only had a simple 4 point cab cage, 1 1/2 tubing also and it worked perfect and saved my life.

dont buy my video. it sucks anyway!!!!

Erik, it looks like a great set up and a great deal, but I am really leaning towards a rear frame mount. But I am definetly thinking about it, I saw it on the "udder" site also.
