The RH4x4 Jeep bolt-in Sport Cage is the cornerstone of Rock Hard 4x4™ products. Developed first for the Jeep Wrangler TJ and proven after years and years of trail use and abuse - the RH4x4™ bolt-in Sports Cage has become one of the most popular safety upgrades in the Jeep aftermarket industry.
The Why - Factory Design Complications
The Wrangler JL almost didn't come to market with solid axles. Weight was a major factor in determining if the Wrangler would sacrifice off road capability for fuel mileage standards. In the end, and what we have today, is a Wrangler attempting to both satisfy regulations and maintain its heritage. To save weight, and save solid axles, the JL engineers installed a very light weight, very thin wall (14 gauge), very body-integrated cage system.
To strengthen this lighter cage, the engineers produced an extremely hardened, odd shaped tubular design. The tubing is unlike any material Jeep has ever used, certainly in the occupant safety realm.
The Cage Brace System strengthens the weak/vulnerable points in the OEM JL cage plus adds functionality. System does require some special tools, but does not require welding.
Drilling - The new factory cage material, while only 14 gauge, is hardened. It takes a very slow (300 RPM ideal, 500 RPM max) drill process and a special hardened cobalt drill bit to penetrate. Your big box store drill bits will not work.
