WHY DO I NEED A ROLL CAGE FOR MY JEEP


A Jeep roll cage is a metal frame that is designed to fit inside your vehicle or can be attached to the top to provide extra safety and security for the driver and passenger in the case of an accident. Adding a roll cage to your vehicle will help stiffen the chassis of your vehicle. Roll cage systems come in kits that can be attached to your vehicle either by yourself or by a professional with installation experience.


Jeep Roll cages are designed to give you the added protection that you may need if you plan to take your Jeep off-roading. Although we never plan for an accident to happen, it is always better to be prepared for the worse than not prepared at all. If you are like many off road enthusiasts and have removed the top from your Jeep, it is highly suggested that a roll cage be installed on your vehicle. Since many off-roaders have also installed lift kits, their vehicles are higher and the center of gravity has changed. This makes it more unstable and easier to roll-over, adding a roll cage will provide you with some type of protection if this does occur.

If you are not a fan of installing a Jeep full roll cage, there are other options that you may like better, adding a roll bar will also provide you with extra protection than not adding anything at all. This is not as large and obtrusive as some roll cages can be, but the choice should be made on how much protection you feel comfortable with. If you do not go off-roading on rough terrain, perhaps a roll bar will be sufficient. But if you are a hardcore fan of going off road and like to push it as hard as you can, you may be better suited installing a roll cage.

Jeep Roll cages have greatly been improved since they were first designed; they are made from stronger metal and can be fully customized to match your vehicles. There are many different sizes and styles available, if you are unsure of what the best style would be for your needs, consult a professional to insure that you choose the correct size for your vehicle.

  1. This, I know the answer to. I need it to save my sorry butt when I get too daring behind the wheel. The first time I rolled my Jeep the only thing that saved me was the fact that I was thrown clear. I know how lucky I was and before I got behind the wheel again, the roll cage was in place. I was hurt, but hurt is a whole lot better than dead. You only get one chance to die and I’m not ready for that. My Mom asked me about a cage and I told her that I knew what I was doing and didn’t need it. Mom is a lot smarter than I gave her credit for.

  2. My wife told me that I only had to install a roll cage if I intended to drive my Jeep. I laughed because I thought she was kidding me and then she gave me ‘that look’. You may know ‘that look’ personally and if you do you’ll understand. Anyway, the roll cage is being installed as I vent. It’s not that I’m not OK with having it, but I feel like a kid who has been given a time out for misbehaving. I’m a reasonable kind of guy and would most likely have decided to have it done anyway. Do you ever get used to ‘that look’?

  3. For any off road driver, that is a duhhh question! If you want to live to ride another day, don’t take a chance with your life. I had to laugh when I read Hal’s comment. I hope he gave his wife a big hug and a kiss for caring about his sorry butt.

  4. Hello!!!!!! Do you plan on driving it off road? It ain’t rocket science buddy, it’s called precaution. They call them accidents for a reason.

  5. I had a roll cage installed because I thought it looked good and gave me an air of danger. Found out last weekend that it’s real job is to protect me when I make an error in judgement. I walked away with a few bruises and 10 stitches and I consider myself lucky.
