    It took us about 6-7 hours in and back out. Had a few issues with the holes not lining up exactly right with the template. Two would fit but not all three. So had to Dremel out the holes to fit correctly. And the threaded holes on the A Pillar Mount itself had to be tapped again. But all in all I saved a ton of money doing it myself.

    Hope to have it back Friday morning from the powder coater and installed Friday night. I値l let you know if I have any issues.

    Sorry forgot to post these. Installation back in after powder coating was a success. Had a few minor issues with threads and bolts trying to cross thread but nothing a Tap couldn't fix. Oh and before powder coating the cage did scuff up the top of my dash a little on the passenger side which you can see in the photo. That was even with a shop rag taped to the dash. Cut right through it and got the dash. Shop rag was an old t-shirt also. Crazy. One note I would make about this install is check the template they provide with the actual holes in the A Pillar parts to confirm they line up perfectly. Some adjustment may be needed.














    Went ahead and upped my car washing game and got me a gas powered pressure washer and foam cannon. Going to give that a try this weekend. Next install I'm going to attempt to wrap the handles on the cage with black paracord. Also got some Ram Mounts for the cellphone and iPad pro just need to put them on.


    I'm really glad I did this install and not the shop because it saved a ton of money in labor and I actually got satisfaction from completing it. Was at a car show this past weekend just looking at cars not entered and had lots of people stop and look at the Jeep. Most were impressed that a lot of the work was done by my best friend and I. Made me feel good to be honest. Here is a photo I took or Wanda at the show. LOL



    Then the Pagani and his group followed me to the gas station; guess they liked what they saw. LOL Just Kidding. Don't even think they noticed me or the Jeep. LOL

    Looks amazing! There is a lot of satisfaction doing it your self and making it yours. I would have spent more time looking at your build that staring at that pagoni, both are amazing though!

    Nice build! You sure are treating her right. I am very excited to see your cage install. I have been contemplating the RockHard vs Evo for mine. It seems you're pretty happy with the RH? Do you feel the dash bar impedes visibility that much? It is possible to mount it closer to the dash with the collar mounts?

    Yes so far I知 very pleased with the RH4x4 Cage. My wife isn稚 a fan because she is short. LOL

    Yes you can lower it closer to the dash but it does spread out the cage on the sides. However I actually like that look better because it sticks out on the sides of the dash and gives it a cleaner look in my opinion instead of tucked in where you have to trim the dash.

About us
努ayoflife is a moniker that I致e 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.
