Title: GenRight JKU Cage install
Post by: Allsouth Autosports on August 17, 2016, 04:33:39 PM
We've had several inquires over the last few weeks about the GenRight JKU cage so I figured we would post up a few pictures of the process.

That's a lot if it doesn't tie in?

Serious question, how much strength is lost when it's not tied and seats aren't on the cage?

I am in for this answer also. I am seriously considering this cage but the attachment points look pretty lame.

B pillar delete purely aesthetic?

Not for those that will run full doors at times or daily drivers with full tops?

Helluva show rig.

So the upright B pillar is gone in comparison?

No, not purely aesthetic. It can be taken off or reattached it I understand correctly. Retain stock functionality, but be able to put it into a tree without hesitation. I can think of a handful of trails (2 hardcore trails) that would make this beneficial for the 4 door guys - upper helderado, lions den, mason jar, etc. I'm jealous of the possibilities for sure.

here is the tie-in question answered directly from Genright

"We tie into the body right above each body mount, so it leaves the rubber mounted body mount for comfort and quietness, but almost as good as a direct mounted urethane mount.

 We found the direct or rigid mounting of the cage to the frame, causes cracks in the body and other things after about 3 years."

So then is the body reinforced at the cage mount? to transfer the Load to the Body mount? it seems like the energy would not transfer to the body mount, unless it was tied in directly.

Have any of you read anything about body cracks from frame tie in? I have not. Frame tie in was one of the driving factors for picking the one I did.

It's just an educated guess here but I bet that cage won't see anything other than a dirt road for the rest of it's life. But some mall curbs can get pretty tall... super nice either way.

I wonder if we could do b pillar removal with other cages. It would be nice to see one done in person

I have had mine for 3.5 years.  No known body cracks from the frame tie-ins.

You guys are overthinking this cage thing.  Here are some tips to help you put a real cage together.

@tcdawg did you pull that from the 2door cage thread on JKO or a different source on the 4door cage?  That was their answer when asked about the 2door cage. 



it was from their JKO thread on the JKU cage.

There are four mounting points per side from the b-pillar back. The mounting points are plenty strong when you see them in person. And this is 2.0 dom, not 1.75. Here are a few pics of the mounts..
You could probably add a b & d frame tie-in pretty easily, but the C-pillar would be a bitch. It is very hard access from underneath

The cage design is absolutely beautiful stuff and very impressive astetically, but..
mounting a dom weld in cage to JK sheet metal seems like hooking a 10 ton winch to a plastic bumper. 

How are the 2 structurally now 1?

In those last few pics it looks as if the cage is prepped for removable upper B pillars... SWEET
Title: Re: GenRight JKU Cage install
Post by: Jeepster1407 on August 18, 2016, 01:26:39 PM

Thats how the cage attaches to the B-pillar as it removes the stock support.  Whether it is removable or not is dependent on cutting the b-pillar, boxing in the ends and pinning it to fit.  There is no kit for that lower cut.  I have done a lot of research on this.


Didn't think there was a kit out yet since not a ton of folks are doing it to justify it. I do think with this cage or one similar it would be super easy to accomplish now. DO IT!!!
