    The rear grab handles pictured above are angled in vs straight with the B piller to offer some knuckle protection, if they are used when they shouldn't be.

    The front grab handles are welded to A piller and the A pillar cross bar, vs welding on the A to B bar. Keep the hand well inside. Does not obstruct view.

    These plates are supposed to weld to the top of the A-pillar. But if you ever fold the windshield down the plates are left there sticking out. So instead I am going to weld plate in the open hole and install a threaded sleave that the windshild plate will bolt too. So then the cage will be smooth and the plates can be removed from the folded down windshield.






    The mirror is blocked some by the V bars.

    Making the B Pillar removable on a 4 door.

    Assuming you are still planning to have the B-pillars bolt back in? Curious to see how that works. Also, is that the Genright cage with custom adds or all Genright pieces?

    Yes the B pillars will bolt back in. That’s one of the things I need to work on. Genright sent threaded sleeves for the seat belts. These sleeves were suppose to weld into the tube. I didn’t use them and welded the holes up. So I plan to use two of those sleeves at the top where the B pillar will bolt to the cage. It will also bolt at the bottom in two places.

    The cage has all of the options. Nothing is technically custom from them.

    The add ons are the V bars, X-brace and two pairs of handles.

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.
