NAS Cage?

I'm looking to have a NAS 110 cage installed on my 110. I have located one here in AU and wanted to see if anyone had installed one? The seller has told it has an internal hoop that would need to be cut off the connection from the external cage, to prevent rubbing on the roof? It appears to be the only Safety devices cage in the country. I have also located local LR shop to install. I was just seeking some feedback from anyone who may be familiar before I go spend 4K and don't end up with what I want. FYI, everything is very expensive here. The cage is 4k and installation 1K.

Here is a link http://www.landrovertuning.com.au/sh...-hoop-nas.html

I just took mine apart, NAS cage has an internal hoop that bolts through the roof with 4 bolts and to the floor behind the front seats.

That cage will fit without too many mods. Check the ecr Facebook page for the white puma they put one on.

A grand to install is beyond cheap.

Personally I wouldn't bother with this cage unless you seriously off road. To cut all those holes in a new truck is nuts. I would rather get the sd cage that is internal and protects the second row primarily but mostly reinforces the roof in case of roll over.

I put a NAS cage on my ROW 110. It's a straight bolt in with just a few small mods. You'll have to make a cuts in the rear floor to get the cage supports through. $1k to install is insane, but being in AU might be your only choice. Here in the US it would be about $400-$600 max. It's about an 8 hour job for one person.

I want the cage for a couple reasons. I always liked the look with a cage compared to a 110 without cage, (personal preference) and second I know it adds a little safety and that helps with the wife when I drive the kids. I did check out the puma on ECR and I thought it looked great.

I'm more concerned with having to cut the cage. Doesn't sound like a big deal though based on you guys. I'm trying to mod it similar to the Black ECR 110 they did a couple years back.

You don't have to cut the cage, you just have to do some minor rear floor mods.

To install a nas 110 cage? Where can it be done that cheap? Average I heard was 2500 and I'm not sure I even trust the people with that price. I would say it is more than minor mods. You have to cut eight holes in the body including roof holes.

Not exactly something you can undo.

Understandable. How was the cage modded on that ecr black truck? Until the puma body it shouldn't require any mods to install.

I'm going off of installing two of them myself and what I would charge based on the hours. I would charge between $400-$600. Installing the NAS cage is not rocket science and if a shop is charging over $1k, and even $2500, they have no business touching your truck. Shoot, I charge $900 to BUILD a full cage for Lemons cars.

Hold on a moment. While I agree $2500 is a bit much. You are not a full time shop with the overhead. So for you to make a comment like that is a bit tacky.

Tacky? It's purely opinion and not a shot at anyone. I truly believe that a shop charging over $1k to install a NAS cage is ripping you off. Two dudes in a garage with basic tools can do it in a weekend. I stand by what I would charge, and did charge to install one.

Purely opinion...

And what's even funnier is that I have ZERO use for it and plan on selling it!!

Better yet, I used it after an intermediary used it, returned it via Goose, who is now after his old RRC seat covers that I have...
This is worse than some of those bumper deals!!
Sorry for the hijack. As far as the NAS cage, cutting holes in the body, tying into the frame, and adding the underbody A supports, I would say $1500+ is closer to reality for an average install price Stateside.
