    The bolt in type are a little more expensive and I think Rock Hard are about the only ones http://www.rockhard4x4parts.com/tj-03.html

    if you find someone with a welder and bring by a case of beer and some pizza the weld in sport cages can be gotten WAY less $ than the Rock HArd

    I have the OrFab cage in my TJ, put it in by myself. You can buy just the cage or add the spreaders (which I did and mount my CB radio there), floor extensions and a dash cross brace. They also sell a roll bar pad set, but I just used pipe insulation and zip ties. The basic kit bolts to the structural support on the side of the dash, ties into the windshield frame and then bolts into the factory center hoop. You will need to drill the holes for the spreader bolts, but you can place them where you want them. At the time of the install the Jeep was my dd so I chose not to use the floor extentions and save some foot room or the above the dash cross brace.

    Yeah was looking for a similar setup for my Cherokee... but no real luck on that as no one seems to have love for the XJ's... Oh well... that just gives one more thing for me to take to MVC....
