Custom Fabricated D90 Replacement Cages

I'm not selling these, but ran into a guy in California who is building them so this is just an FYI. I'm actually not a huge fan because I really like the look of the OEM cage especially with the rubber on the rear sections although it does tend to crack with age/use. But for the price this may be a good option for someone? I was quoted $1795+shipping. Not bad compared to OEM.... Here's one pic.

Have it Line-X'd and it might come pretty close to looking like the stock cage.

Plus, I bet you could sell your stock cage for a pretty penny.

I'd like to see more about that roll cage as well. Looks real nice!

Wonder how a soft top fits...

There's always something "a little off" about the look of UO's stuff. I think that's why its not more widely embraced. I don't know Derek or have any first-hand experience with his stuff, its just my opinion that the look is a bit wrong.

I saw that cage in person the other day. I was impressed. It stays true to the OEM cage shape/proportions, its customizable in case you want different colors/mounting points, and its modular like the OEM cage. I think I'd rather have one than an old beat up OEM cage.

The pics above are pretty much all there is to see. I think that this is as close as you're going to get to the NAS cage unless Safety devices starts producing them again, in which case they'll probably charge at least twice that.

I still wonder if a soft top fits. The shape isnt quite right.

Looks like he has a soft top rolled up in the back of his ride, so maybe it does fit.

if they do a middle bend in the bars it would likely fit fine, but a stock top won't fit the cage pictured as the cross bars are flat across the top and the stock ones have a pretty good peak to them.

However a straight section of tube like that is stronger than one with the "peak" like LR made, it would just mean a custom top... or just run a bikini top.

I like it.. it flows better with the external caging for a consistent look.
