i plan on buying the pre-fab kit for s & w race cars. the 10 point cage kit. it will offer decent protection. then i figure on buying a coupld extra sticks of tube and modifying the cage to my needs, being my Xj is not exactly in stock form lol.

my buddy has a bender i have access to so that will nto be a problem. i figure with the kit as a base to build off of i should be able to end up with a decent final product.

and it is a blast. something i don't have to worry about tearing up.

I personally wouldn't go with the pre-fab cage. I mean I am kind of a newbie to XJ's and stuff. But if you are a very big guy, there isn't much headroom (or room in general) inside an XJ to begin with, and then when you start filling that space with a cage it will get even more cramped. I think you should go with an Exo. I would go longarms first, and save the money to have an Exo done.

well i am tall at 6'1", but other than that a rather small fella only tipping the scale at 170, i don't think the cage will take up that much room.

an exo would be cool and all, but much more $$$ to build or have built and i don't need the body protection, i could care less about the sheetmetal.

Honestly, the one thing preventing me from upgrading my suspension to a long arm setup is the fact that I'd be able to tackle more challenging stuff. Which means that, as you said, a rollover is bound to happen. I agree with the saftey first. Go for the cage first.

thats kinda what i am leaning towards. do the cage now, then upgrade the suspension at a later date.
