Update: OR-Fab no longer manufacturers or sells Sport Cages for any Jeep application. This information will remain on our blog as a resource for those customers who purchased OR-Fab sport cages. For more information, please contact us.Adding a sport cage to your Jeep can definitely provide added protection on the trail. But many Jeep owners, especially those with JK models, don’t want to weld, cut their dash, or lose interior space by installing one.
The OR-Fab JK sport cage fits hard and soft top models with two or four doors, and is available in a wrinkle black or bicycle black (smooth) finish. It retails around $600, while the floor mount kit sells for around $100; and must be installed first. The OR-Fab sport cage takes about 4-6 hours to install but the end result is well worth the effort. The installation images below will hopefully help you understand how to install the sport cage. You can also check out the video at the bottom of the page and for more information, you can log onto http://www.orfab.com/.

OR-Fab provides a template to drill the holes for the cage sides and floor-mount bracket.
Plastic panels on the sides of the Jeep dash are removed as the sport cage sides cover this area and extend down to the pinch weld seams.
The cage’s streamer bars slide onto the top cross bar. The cross bar and dash bar connect to the cage sides with slip-joints.
Before all the cage tubing is bolted a tie down is used to squeeze the pieces together.
The cage cross bar and dash bars are tightened down on both the driver and passenger sides.
The top corner brackets secure the cage to the windshield frame.
The cage sides are also attached with heavy-duty brackets to the factory roof cross member
Once the cage is installed, the interior plastic panels are reinstalled.
The factory padding is reinstalled and the areas over the passenger and driver doors are trimmed slightly.
The finished installation fits hard and soft tops and doesn’t interfere with the sun visors or any of the dash’s A/C vents.
