Default Roll Cages/ Group Buy

We are looking at expanding our cage building. We are looking at coming out with a special deal and are looking to see who is interested in a 8 point pre-fit cage.

I am definitely interested.

8-point Chromoly
Over rear seat
Dual Swingouts
The High quality Swingouts
Pre-notched
Window Net

This would go good with my Fab 9", LCAs, Panhard bar, K-member, upper/lower A-arms, and coilovers. Would be my 5th order from you guys!

Let's make a deal!

If a convertible one would be included in this then you can count me in depending on the price. Was really only wanting a 6 but I will do an 8 if need be.

This is something I would be interested in depending on price. I bought my full 9" setup with all the whistles and bells with you guys and love it! I get so many compliments on it. Beautiful piece of work. Also got the front bumper support. How much are we talking on this cage?

First things first... MWC already offers the best quality, fit, and price on any component, including roll bars and cages. We can work a nice group deal no doubt, and it will be in any form whether 6/8 point roll bar(11.49-10.0) or 8 point full cage 9.99-8.50).

Don't be fooled by advertising hype of "10 point" cages that use the same point at the front of the floor to attach the a-pillar bar and door bar seperately. This method is far weaker than the standard "real 8 point" like we make, and is still only 8.50 legal.

We can make any 8 point into a 10 point by adding optional rear x-brace or engine bay bars, both of which are not required but can add additional rigidity in cars that may benefit from it. If someone already has a roll bar in their car it is no problem to ship out a retrofit kit to convert to 8.50 legal cage.

MWC uses only USA made high quality DOM seamless mild steel(.120 wall) and chromoly tubing(.083/.065 wall). Beware of other mild steel cage kits that are less cost and using the dirtiest, cheapest, and heaviest ERW welded seam tube(usually .134 wall) Our bender makes nice round bends unlike some of the other cage kits offerd that are made on a bender that uses a "one shot" follower bar style bender that ovals the tube like a muffler bend.

MWC currently does not offer a bolt-in type roll bar/cage. IMHO a bolted in cage is just there to suffice the rules and is not near as effective for chassis rigidity as a properly installed weld-in type cage. Yes, I am sure there is some interst in bolt-in setups but at this point it is just not much of a priority.

As far as cost goes it will depend on the number of orders in interest, but I guarantee it will be a smoking hot deal! We have a whole lot of material on hand now and we are starting a production run already.

Ok so regular price is $575 + freight for chromoly and $375 + freight for mild steel on the basic 8 point cage that is good for an 8.5sec quarter mile.

We need prices, weight differences and total weight of each one.

You have about 15 people wanting one. Also everyone likes smoking hot deals. And as a previous customer, I can vouch for their quality....they do absolutely beautiful work. Here is a pic of the 9" they made me last year



Also if you notice in there....Those shocks are not factory height shocks. These guys can do anything custom and they do it right. Not only is it done right but their work is flawless.

That's my thoughts pretty well summed up. What do you need from the folks that are interested to get pricing info out?

Personally I'm looking for a 6pt bar. I would like to know if these are notched and if there is a price difference between notching or not
