JK Custom Roll Cage by KMA Fabrication

Look what KMA Fabrication started in my JK. I have looked at different options for the JK and KMA has come up with the best I have seen. It ties into the front pillar and seems to be very strong. He has made a cage that goes all the way to the floor but I wanted all the leg room I could have so Scott designed this one for me. The mounts are 1/4" and are gusseted very well. It doesn't block the speaker mounts and the factory plastics are trimmed to keep the factory look.




I will get more pics up as soon as KMA Fabrication finishes it.

Thanks Jer for the pics.
The tweeter speakers have to be moved for this option.They are easy to put anywhere else.The mount on this roll bar is 1/4 steel and bolts in the factory bolts for the dash and two more wholes are drilled in the pinch weld under the windshield.This cage is a weld in application,I will make this a builders kit as soon as it's all done.

Guys I am sure Scott will have some pricing soon, but it all depends on how inclusive you want it. We are scheduled to finish mine on Wednesday. Scott has made all my cages. He can go as extreme as you would like. He built my uprights out of DOM and he will be building the rest of the cage out of mild steel. You can't go wrong having KMA Fabrication build it for you. I am super picky and Scott always can build beyond my expectations.

pricing all depends on you.you can get as wild as you wish and I don't like to build the same units also because everyone likes different options thats why I prefer to sell them as a custom unit so call me at 559-493-8314 or E-mail @ [email protected].
Thanks for all the interest Scott Ralph KMA fabrication.com

I'd be down for a builders kit. Is it possible to run DOM tubing all the way down through the dash to the floor? Even if I had to replace the AC vent tubing, I would rather do that. Thanks!

To run tubing to the floor look at my other design on the new products page or my website KMAfabrication.com.To go through the dash is not going to work.I'll work on making more gusseting from the top mount and the floor,but keep in mind the $$$$$$ keep going up and harder to install.
The time it takes to take out all the factory plastic and padding and reinstall takes more time then the tube work.

Jer and I looked at going to the floor through the dash today and with dash mods it may work.So Jer's two door JK might go through the dash because we're going to make a cage from scratch.Stay tuned

Scott,
The cage worked great. A friend rode in it at Moab and he loved the handles. Thanx again.

Man, that looks awesome! Nice work on that setup!

Can you post up pics from the inside after you put the plastic trim pieces back on, or did you leave them off?
