We did it again! The first aftermarket factory cage upgrades for the Wrangler JL are ready to rock! 100% Made in the USA with safety and function as the driving forces.

The Why - Factory Design ComplicationsThe Wrangler JL almost didn't come to market with solid axles. Weight was a major factor in determining if the Wrangler would sacrifice off road capability for fuel mileage standards. In the end, and what we have today, is a Wrangler attempting to both satisfy regulations and maintain its heritage. To save weight, and save solid axles, the JL engineers installed a very light weight, very thin wall (14 gauge), very body-integrated cage system.


To strengthen this lighter cage, the engineers produced an extremely hardened, odd shaped tubular design. In developing our Cage Brace System, we broke virtually every drill bit in our building. The tubing is unlike any material Jeep has ever used, certainly in the occupant safety realm. The shape requires a new way to install a Cage Brace System, and a back to the drawing board approach for us. After a fully year of research and development, we're proud to release our innovative design.


Installation
We promised we'd innovate a no-weld design, and we've done it. Our Cage Brace System strengthens the weak/vulnerable points in the OEM JL cage plus adds functionality. Our System does require some special tools, but does not require welding.


Drilling - every RH-90700 Cage Brace System includes a "Drill Bit Pack": 2 special hardened drill bits and a special "die grinding tree". Why 2 drill bits? Because odds are, you'll need 2. The new factory cage material, while only 14 gauge, is hardened. It takes a very slow (300 RPM ideal, 500 RPM max) drill process and a special hardened cobalt drill bit to penetrate. Your big box store drill bits will not work. The die grinder tree will help you remove burs and finish out the holes. You aren't required to purchase, but may very well need, an additional Drill Bit Pack.

Looks good RH. Looking forward to more photos. Interesting to hear about how hard the cage is.

Also nice that you kept the price decent. And we could do a section at a time if a consumer needed to spread out the purchase.

We do offer a padding kit, plus remember - your rear passengers will be belted in.
