A friend brought me a brand new RZR S with literally no miles on it to build him a cage and put the doors on he bought. He also wanted to add a roof, spare tire and mount, and a front bumper with a couple lights he bought. He had some rear storage box and racks that he got from polaris that I had to keep useable. Was a pretty fun thing to build and put together. DOM 1.75,1.5,1.25, and 1" used. All tig welded. Just finished final assembly tonight. Makin money for my ecotec swap in the green car!:) Thought I would share and contribute to the UTV section while I have a chance. :) Here is some pics.

Cool, nice work! Though I wouldn't expect anything less from you. Your friend should be able to ride with confidence with a cage like that. Is it painted or powder coated?

Very nice work! The lines in front complement the car and the rear is very good looking and functional. It must help to see examples to build something as well as this.

You work for money? I thought you were independently wealthy doing all this work for friends out of philanthopic motives :D

Thanks guys, the owner is real happy with it. It does help having a ton of them out there to see what looks good and what doesn't. I got a lot of ideas from one I saw on the weldingweb forum and just modified certain things that I though would make it stronger and safer.

I do as much sidework as I can and I am definately not wealthy! lol. This weekend I gotta repair some stuff on that 4 seat pre runner in the background. That repair might pay for the material to build my ecotec header. haha, one piece at a time.

Really nice work. I would not even drive a RZR with out a cage like that one. Looks extremly safe, unlike the OEM junk that even has stickers on it telling you its not up to par.

What did you use for the 1.75 tube? .095? Looks good.

when you dimpled the plate you put in the top rear of the cage, did you weld it in then used the dimple die? or dimple the plate then weld it in?
