Poison Spyder C-pillar support install

It's always bothered me that the JKU had no additional support between the B-pillar to the rear portion that tie into the tub. I happened to come across the Poison Spyder C-pillar support while browsing around. For the price and the ease of install, it was a no-brainer. Was also a nice little welding project to practice welding cage tubing. All joints were TIG welded. this is my first time welding a cage, so my welds arent perfect.

That brace is a damn good idea and much needed. Welds look fine, no undercut, no cold lap. Quality.

Same, I added it a while back. Nice welds!

If you want something to cover them up I believe the YJ Cage door padding fits those quite nice and you can pick them up for just about nothing. I have purchased them but the hard top is still on and I'm not fighting putting them on until soft top goes on.

Looks great man. I will be doing this soon as well. I have a PS cage and the c pillar support ready to go in this spring. Nice thing about tig is, if it looks good it more than likely is good, as compared to mig (can look great but may not have any penetration).

nicely done .
I, too, have just this past year been looking at the same supports ...I think I was looking at Rockhard 4x4s as I was scanning for the new crossmember I require. Theirs looks exactly the same as the PS, if I recall correctly...at any rate, you did a nice job .
What amount of total weight was added, if you know, from those two supports?

maybe 20lbs? not a significant weight increase at all. especially considering what it does

Did you weld it up first or bolt the bottom in first?

What were the clamps on the tube and base for in the one pic?
