Sport Cage A Pillar Moulding Trim Pics

I won a giveaway for a Rockhard 4x4 Ultimate Cage... I'm probably over stressing the molding trimming but I'd like to see pics of anyone's that has trimmed them. Pics, tips, and templates pertaining to that are much appreciated.

Thanks!

Congrats on your win, you will love the cage.

Some recommendations for the cage install:

Before you do anything inventory your parts-- any issues contact their CSR. Guy is awesome and WILL take care of you.

Tap ALL and I mean ALL threads to remove burrs from the machining process.

Read the instructions and on RH's website there are excellent how to videos related to the sport cage. Most of the below is in the videos but worth stating again.

Fit check the cage in its entirety into your jeep. This is where and when you do all your cutting, trimming and drilling. You don't want to do this after powder coating. When installing the collars insert the middle bolts first, do NOT tighten, then install the outer 4 bolts. Tighten the outer 4 bolts in an X pattern, then tighten down the center bolts. IF there is binding, back out all the bolts and start over. By the third one you will have this down, patience is a must.

Decide on your powder coat color--probably the hardest choice and task for all of us.

When the parts return from powder coat- tap ALL the threads again. When installing collar use blue painters tape to protect the powder coat. If you are like me your allen wrench didn't slip out during dry fit because there was no finish to mar so that means it will slip during this process.

enjoy your cage...

Here are pics from RH's website for the trimming. As you can see some did an excellent job.
