I have installed a few SD cages in the Defenders. They do what they are designed for especially in slow speed rolls. At a MAR I watched a D90 convertible roll down a hill, 4 passengers, all four walked away. The cage and rear portions of the tub took all of the force.
If its the MAR I'm thinking of those were four of my closest friends and yes nothing worse than bruises. The truck (Black D90 in my Avatar) did not just roll down a hill, it flipped end over end down a hill most trucks could not make it up. This all happened at night as well. It took two other trucks and three winches to recover it off the hill that night. Seeing what happened and how well the cage held up sold all of us on the necessity of having rollover protection when wheeling!

I'm guessing P&P Cages based on the A-pillar curves. But another way to check would be to look where the A-pillar meets with the horizontal tubes near the door. Usually P&P welds on a laser cut "PP" emblem there.

I agree. I had an internal SD cage in a 110 and the bend was not there iirc. It mounted on the opposite side of the safety belt.

Definitely not SD based on the cross brace between the A pillars.
