        Can you reinstall the sound bar after the cage install by trimming it ?

        • In order to reinstall the sound bar with the Smittybilt SRC Cage Kit - 7 Piece - Gloss Black (97-06 Wrangler TJ) customization is required. We have no tried it unfortunately.

        I have a 05 Wrangler Rubicon with a hardtop. I understand the hardtop would have to be removed for cage installation. Will this cage fit with my hardtop reinstalled and with no modifications to either the cage kit or my hardtop? Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.

        • The Smittybilt SRC Cage Kit would not require modification to allow use of the hard top.

        Two things. one can I still use my over head storage system from them? And if you have an 05 will your sound pods fit?

        • You would not be able to use the overhead storage system with this cage and the OEM soundbar will not clear the center bar clamps.

            Roll Cage

            It was the best quality product in the market. It was easy and clear on how to install the product. You don’t have to drill any holes it’s all set up for you already.

            Good reinforcement

            Everything went together pretty well. The hardest part was starting the hex head bolts into the dash. They could be another 1/8" longer and make it a lot easier to start the bolts. I had to use an Irwin quick clamp for these bolts and a 1 inch ratchet strap to suck the A pillar bars together when installing the tube that goes over the dash. The tube that goes in the back only needed to have the roll cage slightly loosened and pulled inward with a ratchet strap. Overall the install wasn't too bad. It took me WAY longer then expected due to working in the direct sun on the only good day of weather we had on a weekend (80 degrees). I expected to be done in about 4-5 hours but it took me 10 hours due to heat and water breaks every 20 minutes

            Great kit

            Great kit if you don’t want to replace the entire cage like myself. With a little help from a buddy I got this kit in in 4 hours. The front crossbar in the windshield can be a tight fit but with a little muscle and patience it fits perfectly.

            Installation Quality

            140lb box when delivered, everything was packaged nicely so no damage or paint scratches to any parts. It does say that the factory sound bar will have to be removed which is true although I cut and modified mine to work instead. Other thing I found is that on the newer TJ’s I think 03-06 have plastic surrounds on windshield/door, I had to cut the plastic to form the A pillars correctly, also the soft top door surrounds front hole location plastic had to be trimmed about 1/2” to fit the alignment pin. Other than that installation wasn’t bad and I have a smittybilt bowless top that still fit after installation. You’ll need T50, T30 Torx bits and kit comes with Allan’s. My Jeep is a 2004 TJ Sport.

            4 hour install. Get it.

            Followed the Smitty built YouTube install video and got this installed in about 4 hours. Leave everything loose until the end. Had to ratchet strap the back bars together and the bar over the dash took some persuading but overall not a bad install. It looks really beefy installed and I like the grab handles. Wish they had sent the longer bolts to use everywhere. The short ones work but longer would be nicer overall. Hopefully I never have to use it!

            Great fit, few minor issues

            Cage fit as advertised, installed on an 05 LJ over 3 evenings by myself, total installation time would be around 7 hours. One minor issue is that the bolts that attach the dash bar to the Jeep frame are too short and require the purchase of 6 new bolts about an inch longer. All other items fit just perfect, take your time, leave it all loose until the end and once the last piece goes in (windshield bar) tighten everything down. One down side is not the product but the shipping, the contract carrier for my delivery sat on the cage for a week before several calls to ET were made and got them to call me and schedule a delivery.

            Smittybilt cage

            Cage is well built and should provide added protection. The 6 bolts for the front pillar are too short. Bought longer ones the same metric grade at the nut and bolt store.

            nice cage for the money and a good quality finish

            this is a nice cage for the money and looks like it will have good protection for a bolt in cage. it does come with the padding and velcro type covers for the padding to go on all bars included with cage. easy install if you have decent mechanical ability. the ONLY drawback i had with it myself is the rear bar that goes across from one side to the other will not work with a treck top because of the way the topstraps to roll cage so i had to leave this bar off. overall a great cage though

            SRC Cage for TJ

            Excellent product by Smittybilt. Installation was simple and easy to follow. There were more parts with this one than the leading competitor's cage. Smittybilt gives you a 7 piece kit for what you would normally spend from the competition on a 5 piece kit. Great deal for the price. I also received a Military Discount from Extreme Terrain, awesome customer service, I will definitely do business with them again in the near future. I'm also in a local jeep club and will be sure to tell them about the easy install and great value on this product.
