OR Fab Sport Cage?

Evidently, OR Fab has discontinued the Sport Cage. Anyone know of one in stock anywhere?

2009 Silver Unlimited Rubicon -- Not really stock, anymore.

I believe OR-Fab stuff is made to order and drop shipped. Call Chris at Jeep Add-Ons. Or call OR-Fab directly.

In case you're still looking, Summit Racing still has (had?) some in stock. I ordered over the weekend and they confirmed shipment today.

Sport cage (82300) shipped today from Summit's Ohio warehouse, and the floor supports (82301) are supposed to drop-ship from manufacturer (fingers crossed).

Hope this helps someone.


EDIT: Summit canceled the order on the floor supports (82301) "because . . . discontinued" - so I scored a set off Amazon.

I'd look elsewhere. I had an Or-Fab cage in my YJ. Looked pretty flimsy and a few mionths after installing it they recalled it and gave me my money back. They advertized it a a "styling" mod only, etc. after some guy rolled and had it collapse on him. He sued saying it was substandard fr the advertized use, etc. Looks like someone's done the same with their JK version. PSC, Rockhard, etc. make some better stuff.

Generally, I'd agree with you, but there will be a few "minor modifications" to mine before all is said and done.
Out of the gate, I'm going Synergy rear with the Or-Fab front, but the front streamers will be tied to the B-pillar and B-C streamers.
Tapping screws will not be part of the equation, I assure you. FYI, this is on a 2-door.

While I'm in there, I may replace the B-pillar cross tube with some 2x4x.188" tubing, but haven't decided yet. Maybe just plate it.
Down the road, I may replace the slip joints with tube couplers (but not a super-hot priority right now).

On its own, the Or-Fab is better than stock but not enough to give me the warm-and-fuzzies.
With a little help, it'll give us the protection we are willing to settle for while leaving room for my left foot (I'm built kinda' funny).

I was going to do a full Synergy weld-in front & rear, but I'm not willing to give up the foot room.
The PS setup leaves me leery on a few points, so I abandoned that option.
Genright is $uper-proud of their 4-dr cage, and may take years to come out with a 2-dr model, so they're out.

I decided that I'd rather make up for the Or-Fab's weaknesses than do the same for the RockHard.
Personal preference, no desire to persuade here. Hope it all works out.
