    a learning experience is one of those things that says, you know that thing you just did...don't do that again.

    Yes, you have a PM in response to the one you sent me, but I will address the points here for all to see.


    We received the cage as a full donation directly from Rock Hard 4x4 Parts.


    What you are seeing in the pics is:

    Ultimate Sports Cage - includes T-section over the driver and passenger, A-pillar bars that bolt into the existing dash mounts in the door openings, and the Across the Windshield bar
    Rear Angle Bars - attach to the main factory hoop and the factory rear side bars, on the 97 - 02 the factory speaker bar needs to be removed or modified to fit
    Straight Across the Rear Bar - ties the two factory rear side bars together at the rear upper corner of the factory cage

    What is not shown in the pics but we will be using is the Sports Cage Floor Mounts. These tie in on the backside of the dash mounts at the door openings, basically the a-pillar bars and floor mounts sandwich the dash mounts, then the floor mounts use the existing factory drain hole to mount through the floor.


    There is also a full padding kit and a harness bar available, but we will not be using ether of these items.


    The complete TJ Ultimate Sports Cage system, with all options, lists on the Rock Hard 4x4 Parts website for approximately $1500, it is completely bolt in with no cutting or welding required. They also make cages for many other models including CJ5, CJ7, CJ8, YJ, TJ, LJ, JK, and yes, even the XJ and ZJ...they make many other parts as well, bumpers, sliders, skid plates, and other accessories.


    Give them a call, ask for James, let him know you saw it on the Marc Diab Build that JeepKings.ca and 4WDrive are working on...thank him for his generosity to the project and let him know you are interested and would like to know where you can buy it.

    Thanks for what you are doing, I was Marc's Ops WO on tour, he love a lot of things and his Jeep was one of them, he came to me a few times with Jeep related stuff and we had some good chats, I have driven his jeep when it was not running so good and he needed a second opinion....lol
    I have been driving a Jeep starting in 1989 and will always have one, currently in a Liberity but going back to the (now TJ) once this one is done, As long as it will tow my boat that is, if not looks like a Ram.
    Great job, I will continue to keep his family updated on the process.

    Hey Fabian, nice to see you posting on here. I have been monitoring the marcdiabproject@jeepkings.ca email and remember the email you sent. Thank you for that, every bit of encouragement the team receives helps in many ways.

    Tony (onehoser) has already posted a link to some additional pictures, feel free to grab whatever you like for Marc's family.


    Not sure if you have seen it yet, but the build was featured in the most recent issue of 4WDrive (Vol. 15, Iss. 2)...I have arranged for Marc's family to receive copies, but I am not sure if they have seen them yet.

    The Jeep is still at body and paint. Seats arrived Saturday from PRP. Rims have landed in Ontario and should be arriving at the shop within the next few days.



    At this advanced stage of the build we have chosen to hold off on any further pictures until it is 100% complete...we are doing this to maintain some secrecy of the finished product. We are still forging ahead with our goal of debuting the Jeep at the Rock Spyder open house on Sunday, but we are at the mercy of the timeline of other shops who are completing their portion of the build.



    I am fairly certain there will be some help needed in the coming days once the Jeep returns to the JeepKings.ca facilities in Hamilton.
