Roll bars are bars that help protect drivers from an accident. They help protect drivers from being crushed in rollover accidents by taking the weight of the vehicle. Roll cages are frames that are built around a vehicle cab. In the case of a rollover accident, the roll cage provides much more protection than a simple roll bar. They are often found in racing vehicles, but have many applications for those who own a Jeep.


If you often go off roading in your Jeep, it is essential that you at least have a roll bar. Roll bars will help protect you if you should have an accident, and a single roll bar can provide moderate protection. If you can afford to, then it is best to add a roll cage to your Jeep. You will have a lot more protection with a roll cage than you will with a roll bar, and cages will protect you on all sides. You can find many different styles of Jeep roll cages and bars.

You can find the parts to make roll cage assemblies. These assemblies give you everything you need to add a roll cage to your Jeep and protection all across the top. You won’t have to worry about sacrificing leg room to add a Jeep roll cage assembly, and most will not block air conditioning or heater vents or window cranks. Most of the assemblies attach to the factory bar, and some can be used to mount the shoulder belts, giving even more safety. They also support the windshield.

Whether you’re adding a Jeep roll bar or roll cage, you can add grab bars. This will give you a better sense of security and can help reinforce your protection. You can get bars and cages that will fit half cab and full hard and soft tops so there is sure to be something that will suit your Jeep no matter what model it is.

Even if you never go off road with your Jeep, it isn’t a bad idea to add at least a roll bar. A cage would provide even more protection in the event you were in an accident on the highway. You often can save much more money by installing the bars and cages after market than if you were to buy them when you purchase the Jeep.

  1. I spent close to a month in the hospital being treated for multiple injuries sustained when I rolled my Jeep off of a steep cliff and onto a dry riverbed loaded with rocks. Thankfully, my injuries will all heal, but I know how lucky I was. There isn’t much left of my Jeep so I’ll be buying another as soon as I am able to be up and around. I traded traction for a neck brace and I’m still in a walking cast from a compound fracture to my left leg. If I had installed a roll bar or better yet a roll cage, my physical outcome would have been a different story. My next Jeep, and their will be another, will have the roll cage for protection. This particular trail was one I had driven multiple times so don’t mistake familiarity with safety.

  2. I’ve been a daredevil from the time I figured out how to walk. My Mom always swore I was part monkey. As I got older I found more ways to tempt fate. I bought my first Jeep when I was 17. I consider it an extension of myself and I take a lot of chances with it too. For Christmas, Mom had a roll cage installed. She must have that sixth sense because the last weekend in January I rolled off of a rock ledge. The cage undoubtedly saved my life. They do work.

  4. Every Jeep should have a roll bar. Those who take their Jeeps off road should really have the cage. The longer you drive off road, the cockier your get, and the more chances you take. I know every driver will tell you that they are sure of their own driving skills. All I can say is ‘they call it an accident for a reason.

  5. I’m probably going to make some enemies here but I have something to say and I feel I need to be heard. Any Jeep or off road vehicle should be equipped with at least a roll bar and optimally a roll cage. I can’t tell you how many guys I know that have lost limbs, mental capacity or just outright died because they did not have this safety feature. Just like the motorcycle helmet law, this safety feature is mostly ignored. Come on people it just makes sense. Protect yourselves and your loved ones so you’ll be able to continue to enjoy your outings.
