    It's a really Straight forward install. If you dry fit everything you can get really accurate placement for the A pillar support holes. I put lines centered on the three holes on the plate, then dry fit and marked the jam from there.

    If you can get a template it would save time. I didn't have that option 🤷*♂️
    Good luck on install. It's a great cage and looks really clean once installed.

    Great awesome video and luv the music! Bit late to the EVO cage party but that video made the install simple and sold me. EVO cage ordered and awaiting delivery. Thanks

    p.s. did you get it painted or powder coated?

    Finally got my EVO sport cage installed. EVO engineered the individual pieces but I had to "engineer" them to fit. The EVO SC install required chopping and cutting sections of the inner dash metal frame and dremeling the pinch plate holes larger to adjust for fitment. Printing your own instructions is not bad but the drilling template placement was inaccurate by at least a half hole. I also cut a small relief hole for the dash headlight sensor.
    Despite the issues the EVO sport cage is still my #1 choice. The beefy A-pillar supports mount flush to the A-pillars with virtually no loss of peripheral vision. The dash crossbar lies stealthy low and drivers can quickly adapt to its presence. The entire sport cage is made from 4130 chromoly steel. The JK structure felt more rigid and tighter as a unit as the sport cage does tie in the OEM roll bars and windshield frame as one unit.

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.
