    I added a rear roll bar to the “bed” of the TJ. I started with a CJ-5 full roll cage I scored on Craigslist for $25. I cut it down and tweaked it till it fit the TJ. I made some captured nut plates to bolt it in and give me something to use to tie the cage to the frame after I swap frames. I want this to be very functional as well as the aesthetics of it.

    I was going to ask if any part ties into the frame?... I see its in your plans... Do you plan a roll cage in the cab area?

    Yes I do, I still have the center factory hoop and windshield spreader bars. I’m going to add a front cage kit sometime prior to taking it off-road. It may go on before the frame replacement or after just depends.

    Not the best picture, but gives you an idea what’s in there currently.

    Added my new mirriors, and mirrior mover brackets to the TJ. Just still fitting stuff up that I know I’ll have to remove prior to the frame swap and paint, but it keeps me motivated.

    Re: The Cheap Wrangler Build...

    Im interested in the mirror movers. Are they good? Is it harder to see back?? The mirrors i have for doors off fit in the hinge and vibrate like crazy making it difficult to see well.

    Re: The Cheap Wrangler Build...

    The mirrior movers are good overall, there are different styles of movers (some styles you take the mirrior apart to fit in the mover). They don’t affect removing the door as they’re clear of the path of lifting it out. With the door on (or if you have half doors with the upper on) you lose a bit out of the passenger mirrior. I know on the JK’s they make mirrior movers that have an adjustable passenger bracket to move the mirrior further out.
