4-Seater Cage Question

Can anyone tell me if there is a significant increase in the strength of cages that bolt to the frame as opposed to the ones that bolt to the bed? All the cages I like seem to be bolted to the bed, but I have a little one riding back there and I want to make sure I am not sacrificing safety for the look that I want. Thanks!

I think its much safer to have it go to the frame. But Ive never seen it done.

The frame would be safer but what kind of riding are you planning on going? If your going to be putting around the forest I wouldn't worry about it so much. If you are planning on launching the thing off comp hill I would get all the cage you can

That's probably the cleanest frame mounted 4 seater cage I've seen!

Get a cage that bolts to the frame .... if it bolts to the bed it is ok if the bed is then braced to the frame.

SDR just released their new cage at the Sand Show. IMO it is the safest 4 seat cage on the market. It includes a bed delete kit and lowers the rear seat.

Here is their website....

And here is a link to more info about the cage....

this is my cage built by dumontdunes.com




I wouldn't rock a cage without being attached to the frame.I have a 2 yr old and wouldn't trust any other style.

Full Potential by far has the nicest cage and it bolts to the frame right above the receiver hitch. I rolled my two seater with a Full Potential cage and just had to get it re-powder coated. No bends or nothing.

Here is the best pic I have of the rear mount. I do like the way Rotten Rhino's cage doubles as a frame support as well. Pretty slick design.

I too am in the market for a 4 seater cage...I really really dont like how those bumper style ones look though...I like yours kingck5 its nice and clean! Didn't you guys see that vid of that guy last new years rolling it at glamis!? He didn't have a bumper style and it held up damn good!!!
Besides I doubt well be hauling ass or jumping the **** out of em when we got kids in the back!?

BTW: How much does that SDR setup cost?
