Safety devices roll cage padding

What padding have people used for their roll cage? I got a quote of almost $500 to get the padding for my internal roll cage, which is crazy. I feel like my head would whack the side pretty hard on a side impact.

I used universal roll cage padding from Summit Racing. Had to do some trimming to fit around the corners, joints, and bolts, but it looks quite good. Available in bulk, and not very expensive. Will wrap with self vulcanizing rubber tape this summer to see how that looks.

I bought the Safety Devices padding for my cage. It is just standard high density foam padding that you could get from Summit like down_shift linked. Not sure if it is SFI approved or not. I ended up replacing it with OEM NAS SW padding for my application.

Save your money and get it from Summit etc.

Summit it is. I feel like there is no way I can put the 360 degree padding on b/c my roll cage sits tight both against the vertical trim parts and the against the headliner. Did you guys use the the C shaped pieces with self adhesive? Also, am I correct that I don't want the SFI stuff? I thought that the SFI stuff is made for use with helmets, which I don't plan on wearing... I guess the question is if I am T-boned, do I want to die quickly with softer padding, or slowly with SFI approved padding.

I have some original '93 NAS 110 covers if anyone is looking for some. No foam.


I asked Badger to make me up some leather covers to match the Puma seats I upgraded for the '93. So Badger might be another option.

Good timing, I've been looking at different options for the last few weeks. I just placed an order for the pads from Paddocks yesterday. RBL1727PAD is the item number. It'll be interesting to see how this all works once the headliner and B-pillar trim is re-installed. Also not sure about the seat belt mounting point on the vertical cage support, as that isn't covered by the padding.

I'll keep you posted on my experience once the pads arrive...

Reese- PM sent regarding the covers

The safety devices padding arrived yesterday. It's simple stuff, just a high density foam that's black and has embossed "safety devices" in a couple spots. And there's PLENTY of it. There are 4 pieces, and single piece pretty much spans the width of the interior cage bar. It just slips over and they include zip-ties to hold it in place. I haven't started the install yet, but it's pretty straight forward with a few cuts to make some shorter sections to cover the top of the vertical supports.

Shipping was great, and everything is in order.

I ordered some of the Longacre stuff from Summit. It is made for 1.5-1.75" bar and fit great.....however it has raised logos every 4" that looked horrible. I sent it back and am going to order the jaz products padding to see how that goes. FYI, I checked the summit universal padding specs and it only goes up to 1.5" bar. I believe the vertical bars on the internal roll cage are 1.75". I'll let you guys know how the Jaz stuff fits. I was told by them not to order the SFI approved stuff -b/c that is made for helmets. The non-sfi is softer and more forgiving if my mellon hits it.

Cool, good luck! The Safety Devices padding has a single embossed logo, about 12 inches in from either side. It's pretty low key stuff, but would definitely look better with some sort of cover.
Because it's made specifically for the internal cage on the Defender, I'm assuming it's more melon-rated than helmet-rated, but who knows I can tell you that it is pretty soft, and easy to cut. It's basically a dense rubber material.

Here's to never needing to find out whether or not it's important to have padding on our internal roll cages...
