have a 92 XJ we are starting to build.  Trying to decide if i should put a cage insaid, or do an exocage.  It's a four door and we will have the kiddos in the back.  Just lookin for some ideas. ;D

You can get a prebent cage with rear grab bar for an XJ for $450 from D&C extreme.  That was what I was going to do with my last Cherokee, its a little more than building it yourself but it would save several hours.

I like the exo's in case you get into a tree with the side you are not busting out your rear windows as easy.

I liked my exo till I got hung up on a tree by it.  I have just come to the realization that I am going to dent stuff since I have no driving ability.

Same here,  I'd rather save the added vehicle size and sacrifice sheet metal. If you drive on the highway,  you may also not want the extra drag and weight of an exo.
