    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    One of the things that has bugged me with the cage since day one is that the drivers side visor does not easily go up and down since the cage install. I basically have to slide out the visor put it down, then slide it back it because of the handle. My passenger side is close, but it works pretty much as it did before. Not sure why, but yesterday I was looking at the angles. Decided to unscrew the visor and throw about 1/4 - 3/8 of an inch worth of washers on the left side screw. Put the visor back on and wouldn't you know, clears the handle now.

    Just thought I'd throw it out there as could be a simple fix for others too. Simple enough to try at least.
    I'll have to give that a try, I'm about to pull the cage to fix some of the behind the dash crap that the shop left half-assed when they replaced my heater core.

    For now, I loosened the cage on the top visor mount and at the side plate then put a pry bar thru the handle and pulled out on it while I tightened the top bolts up then the side plate.

    surprisingly it's held.

    Red seems to go well.

    Anybody else have a gap on the upper cross member? I tightened down one side and there's a 1/4" gap on the other side with bolts tightened. It's not getting a snug fit around the existing roll bar.

    Throw a ratchet strap around your factory tubes to close that gap, then retighten collar bolts. Remember to tighten upper and lower 2 middle bolts first, then the outers.

    I'll give that a shot. 1/4" seems like a heck of a gap to crank down on the stock cage. Not a big deal? I don't want to start popping welds, nuts, etc or bending the windshield.

    The issue you are having is super rare, but we've seen it before and the strap did the trick every time.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
