Internal Cage - 10 lbs in 5 lb bucket....

I want some rollover protection with a couple seats in the back of my series hybrid. I am having a hard time getting it all to fit! I want a place for the kids to sit and be as safe as possible, but it is tight. Looks bad with the top off too because it is so tall compared to to the windshield and doors... I can't decide if I would be better off with a single braced rollbar at the B pillar. There are so many bars in the back I start to wonder if they aren't a bigger hazzard than they are worth.
Thoughts or ideas??

I have a similar style cage in the back of my 88 and I know what you mean about it looking weird with the top off. I usually run a hoop set and full canvas top with the sides rolled up, to provide some shade and cover up the height difference of the bars. I have single braced bar at the B pillar, but it's tied into another bar at the C pillar, with some triangulation at the corners only. Were there bars you were thinking of ditching? Everything seems out of the way as possible on your cage.

Funny - I had just checked your avatar right before I posted on the cage this morning... My cage has a whole lot of bars....while we were building it, it seemed like the right thing to do - as many triangles as possible. I was thinking about a plain old single hoop like the first picture, but I would do some cross bracing in the middle of the hoop. On the cage I have built now the only bars I would consider deleting would be the angled bars along the roof line unless there are some that are unnecessary??

you could get rid of those angled bars along the roof line and then opt for some smaller pieces for triangulation like mine has. It wouldn't be as strong, but it would still be far better than having nothing above you at all.

I never posted the final product....It is tighter back there than I would like, but I don't know how I could have made more space without going exo...

Don't try to convince us of your safety concern, you just wanted to build a sweet amp rack.

And the kids sit on the biggest baddest subwoofer enclosure. For an encore think you need a cage for yourself and the missus. Looking pretty exposed up front.
