The Poison Spyder Trail Cage is designed for those Jeep YJ, TJ and LJ owners who already have the factory roll bar, and would like to add on to it to form a full roll cage rather than installing a complete new cage. The Trail Cage kit is an eight piece set. It comes with two Lower A-Pillars (dash to floor supports) and two tubular Upper A-pillars that are to be welded to the factory windshield bars. Also included are a dash bar, upper windshield bar, and two center spreaders that can be located in several positions.

The Poison Spyder Trail Cage kit comes disassembled and requires welding to install. The Lower A-Pillar is designed to provide a strong foundation for the forward section of the cage while not intruding into the dash or compromising legroom. The Trail Cage is secured at the windshield, at the front gusseted A-Pillar, at factory mounts on the door jamb and to the floor through the forward drain hole. This provides solid strength from the top of the windshield to the floor. The Lower A-Pillars and gussets are CNC laser cut and precision brake-formed for quality and fit. Tubular kit components are constructed from 1.75" .120 wall DOM structural tubing. All tubular components are CNC-bent and laser-notched for a precise fit, and laser-marked with reference numbers for easy identification and installation.

The Heavy Duty Header Bar Kit is sold separately but is a highly recommended addition to the Trail Cage installation. The Trail Cage can be installed with the stock header bars, but those are little more than thin-wall tubing intended to brace the windshield, providing little in the way of cage protection. Our Heavy Duty Header Bar Kit replaces them with precision-manufactured, high strength components that work withh your stock roll bar and Poison Spyder Trail Cage Kit to provide the strength and safety of a real deal, heavy duty cage. The Heavy Duty Header Bars are made from high strength 1-3/4" X .120 wall DOM structural tubing, laser notched and expertly welded to CNC laser cut 3/16" mount plates. For comparison, the stock header bars are made of .095 wall welded seam tubing, withh thin gauge stamped metal mounting flanges. The DOM tubing used in the Poison Spyder kit has a yield strength of 70,000 psi, with a tensile strength of 44,668 lbs. Compare that to the welded seam tubing of the stock header bars, at 40,0000 psi yield strength and only 19,757 lbs. tensile strength. The Heavy Duty Header Bar Kit may also be installed by itself without the Trail Cage, or with other manufacturer's add-on cage kits.

NOTE: A Torx T-50 Tamper-Proof Driver Bit may be required to remove and replace/reinstall the OE windshield spreader bars. These may be hard to find at your local hardware store, so they are available from Poison Spyder for your convenience.

The Optional Entry Grab Handles may be added to the Trail Cage to make entry and exit easier, as well as providing a secure grab handle while wheeling. Also available is a Rear Spreader Bar to further strengthen the back half of the OEM roll bar. Taken together, all of these components turn the Jeep's factory roll bar into a safe, secure full cage suitable for hard-core wheeling.

5 of 5 TJ Trail Cage Kit January 2, 2016
Reviewer: Robert Tempel from LaPorte, IN United States  
All fit well as described. Installation was as described. As a consumer it is a pleasure to purchase a product from a supplier with no hidden or unexplained surprises that come up during unpacking or installation. Highline  fenders are next on my shopping list. Keep up the great work!

4 of 5 TJ/LJ Trail Cage Kit August 1, 2013
Reviewer: William Sabo from Pell City, AL United States  
The cage fit very nice and doesn't obstruct visibility.  The only disappointment I had was the Spyder emblem was not cut into the post as the website picture depicted.  I expected it to be like the front bumper I had purchased.

5 of 5 Jeep Wrangler Trail Cage July 22, 2013
Reviewer: John A. from United States  
My only suggestion would be to scrap the instruction sheet and actually design one with better clarity. I ended up winging if from pictures online. I did notice two of my pipes were numbered wrong from the factory also but its not hard to figure out where the pipes go. Some time needed to weld in correctly but if your a do it your selfer or can get help , once installed this Trail cage is awesome. I welded the base to the floor additionally. I recommend this if your looking around.

4 of 5 TJ/LJ Trail Cage Kit March 26, 2013
Reviewer: Karl Seader from Denver, CO United States  
The 2ea. upright tubing were about 3/8 short. If they were to long I could have at least cut them off. This way I had to fill with weld.
