    This ^^^^^

    I think once the panels are off, the overall look of the JL will still "look" topless or toplessish - it just won't have what looks like a simple tubular cage.

Plus the wrangler will always be a higher roll over probability, simply because of its size, shape and design. I guess I'm just trying to say it seems dumb to me no matter how much weight you save.

    Don't forget, we already make interior cages for Jeeps that do not have a factory tubular cage. Take a look at our Cherokee and Grand Cherokee cages. The upside of all this again is our patented locking collars. They allow us to give you a fully functional sport cage no matter what Jeep does.

    This will probably mean drilling required to mount some of our tubing to floor, but beyond that - still means no welding.

    LOL!! Oh, I have no doubts that you guys would have an answer for this. My only point was to say that it won't be like the JL won't have protection, just not the kind that we're all used to.

    Could you explain what the difference is between your "patented locking collars" and say a tierod clamp that PSC makes, besides the size?

    Completely different intent of use. Our patent is on the theory of connecting structural tube with a collar creating a solid junction to any other structural tube. Using a collar to create a cage in essence. The same logic will apply when the JL comes out, even if it does not turn out to have factory tubing.

    Our patent:

    How do you guys feel about that?

    The way that picture looks, I could imagine the soft top running on the "rails" that make up the upper body frame. Not exactly sure what they'd do for the side windows...maybe they'll still be zip in

    The one benefit to the look of that pic is that half doors still look possible

    New 2018 Wrangler, without Roll Cage?

    So, is this an actual JL? And is nobody going to ask, what the hell are those vents in the front quarter panel, and where the duck are the hood latches!?

    Aside from that, the roll cage issue seems minuscule. The one we have now isn't all that anyways. Most people put an aftermarket one in for a reason.
    I'm sure companies will start pushing product before the JL is 6 months old.
    It's a Jeep.
    Innovation follows.

    Wow very interesting. Would have never thought that jeep would have made so many dramatic changes.
