Saw this being used on the latest wrangler build on extreme4x4. I'm thinking I want to mount my cage in this manner. I believe I can adapt this for use on the Bronco

Thoughts??

I think you can tie in without it just fine but as a street driven rig you may find it a more pleasant on road ride. I also believe this is why they used it on the TJ on extreme.

I'm not sure if the legth will work as a jeep has a wider frame than a Bronco. Ironcally a similiar thread has started on the Bronco Board and the fella fabbed up something very similiar. I may get up with him and see if he wants to make me a set, or I might just do it myself

I like that better Ed, the struts are not staight out like the last pic "the Jeep", thereby making the whole assy stronger. It would be rather easy to make that. All you need is the tabs, bushings, and steel plate. I have enough tube to make them.

I have the tube and the tabs, just let me know when you want them. I need to get rid of some of my drop tube anyway...

Here's his list of parts to contstruct


I am using 73-87 Chevy half ton poly leaf spring bushings, they have an OD of about 1.5", perfect for installing into 1.75" .120 wall tube, come in sets of 4.

The 1/4" tabs I had leftover from my seatbelt install, and the footplates a local shop punches out for about $3 each. I have a Protools bender and notcher, kinda just using up leftovers

YJ rear main eye spring bushings will work as well as they have a 1.5" od to fit in the 1.75" tube. Andy from Carolina Rock Shop has a bunch left over and he may sell them for a decent price if you need them.

I have the 1/4" tabs and plenty of short drops of 1.75" tube if needed. I owe you one for the trailer use, so let me know what you need and I'll dig through my tabs and tube for ya.
