mg man being nice... that cage will not save anyone, and if intended to provide safety, should be reengineered. that welded section in the main loop, the crush bends etc.. thats all really dangerous and is more like getting into an accident with scaffolding in ya car than a safety cage.. just my 2ç from one of the old fellas.

This is a Safety Devices roll cage...these guys are among the best, so I'd trust any design they use

yeah, but the rest of the cage is built with crush bends and cheap pipe without the correct engineering or mounting plates... it is very dangerous like this.. a simple fender bender may compress the chassis and snap one of the pipes or welds to the floor and it can seriously impale or injure someone..
