4x4 and Off-Road Cage Projects

There are alot of cage designs available at reasonable prices for Jeeps and other off-road vehicles. Because of this, and because our emphasis is on fabrication of competition-proven cages, we don't build many cages for off-road vehicles. However, when an off-road enthusiast is looking for a cage design that will fit their specific needs, a custom-fitted Hanksville cage can be a great option. For instance:
  • All of our cages are built to maximize driver and passenger space. Like our road and drag race cages, our 4x4 cages are custom-fitted to the driver and passenger seating positions to give you as much room as possible.
  • Our  tube joints are precision-notched and are TIG-weldable. This gives our customers tighter tube joints, meaning higher-quality welds even if a customer chooses to have us MIG-weld the cage instead of TIG.  
  • Our cages are designed to tie structurally into the frame of your vehicle. Since the strength and structural rigidity of the mounting points are key components of the safety of a cage, we do not tie into the dash, floor or other sheetmetal parts.

Take a look at some of the 4x4 cages we have built:

Alex's Raptor

Alex operated a hunting expedition business, and purchased this brand-new Ford Raptor as a vehicle to use while on trips with his clients. After having this truck, with 32 miles on the odometer, delivered to have a wrap installed, the truck was brought to Hanksville for custom tubework.

Our list of projects included custom 1.625" DOM tube/winch bumpers that were skinned for greater durability; reinforced side steps that were structurally tied-into the framerails with 1.75" DOM tube; an exoskeleton made from 1.625" DOM that was tied-into the the truck's chassis in 8 points; a roof rack made from 1.625" 4130 chrom-moly, with a perforated aluminum sheet floor; a rear ladder providing access to the rack; battery boxes; a bed-mounted auxiliary winch; and several light mounts.

We attached five lights to the front bumper, five lights to the front of the roof rack, and three lights to the rear of the roof rack. We also fabricated elevated mounts onto the roof rack for remote-operated spotlights, and fabricated custom mounts for a telescopic mast for a high-tech thermal imager.

Other than the chassis attachments, all of the welds were TIG-welded for the best quality and appearance.

This was a very complex project that required two months of dedicated work.

Sol's Early Bronco

Sol is a professional off-road motorcycle racer who competes in desert races such as the Baja 1000 and other big events. He wanted to build a replica of the Big Oly Bronco, an iconic desert-race vehicle, to compete in a vintage race. He chose Hanksville Hot Rods to play a major role in the fabrication of his vehicle. Beginning with an Early Bronco that he uses as a pre-runner, we performed modifications to his existing cage, extensive sheetmetal work, a drivetrain swap, installation of a fuel cell, fabrication of a custom spare tire mount and Hi-Lift jack mount, fabrication of a custom grille and tube bumper, custom tubular rear shock mounts, a custom wing, and other projects.

Building off of his existing cage, we removed the back-half and fitted new rear braces and X-bars, as well as the tubular spare tire mount and shock mounts. We tied the fuel cell mounts into the cage to maximize structural integrity. Since Sol's new Mastercraft seats were higher than his old seats, we also lowered his seat mounts to give him more headroom. The cage tubes were made from 1.5" x .120" DOM tube, and feature custom tab mounts for the roof wing, fuel fillers and Parker air pump.

This was an extensive project that required a significant time investment and attention to detail. Check back for updated pictures, and check out our Sheetmetal Fabrication Projects page for pictures of the sheetmetal work that we performed for this project.

Jake’s Samurai

Jake brought pictures of a cage in a Samurai that he had seen, and asked us to duplicate the look and fit of that cage. This project was to be performed in two phases. This first phase involved fabricating a cage from 1.625" DOM, and tieing the cage it into the frame at 6 points. We designed this cage to be removeable by unbolting it from mounting points welded to the frame. The body is sandwiched between the mounting plates for greater stability. Jake asked us to TIG weld the cage to enhance its appearance.

This project is a great example of Hanksville's customer service. Since Jake had a clear vision of the look that he wanted for this cage, he worked with us for many hours at the shop, giving us guidance as we built his cage. This ensured that he got exactly what he wanted, since he was part of the build process at every step. This "open door" policy is a key component of our ability to listen to our customers, to allow them to watch and participate in the project, and to deliver the high quality that they expect.

Rick’s Grand Cherokee

Wanting to strengthen the back of his highly-modified ZJ, Rick came up with a great design featuring a main hoop, crossbar, rear braces, and extra rear connector bars. The roll bar is constructed of 1.75" DOM mild steel. We also strengthened the mounting points by building 3/16" gussets to connect the subframes and floors, and built a beefy spare tire mount that uses the roll bar for support.

More recently, Rick came back to have us build the remainder of the roll cage. We added a "B" hoop, "A" pillar bars and several spreaders to help strengthen the cage structure. We also added a seat crossbar, dash bar and windshield bar. We welded the mounting plates to the floor near the rocker sills. Under the floor, we used plates that are tied into the rocker panels and subframes with vertical gussets.

More recently, Rick came back to have us build the remainder of the roll cage. We added a "B" hoop, "A" pillar bars and several spreaders to help strengthen the cage structure. We also added a seat crossbar, dash bar and windshield bar. We welded the mounting plates to the floor near the rocker sills. Under the floor, we used plates that are tied into the rocker panels and subframes with vertical gussets.
 

Rick’s Grand Cherokee

Wanting to strengthen the back of his highly-modified ZJ, Rick came up with a great design featuring a main hoop, crossbar, rear braces, and extra rear connector bars. The roll bar is constructed of 1.75" DOM mild steel. We also strengthened the mounting points by building 3/16" gussets to connect the subframes and floors, and built a beefy spare tire mount that uses the roll bar for support.

John’s Jeepster

Wanting to add some safety to this very clean, original Jeepster, John asked us to add a roll bar and to repair some rust spots on the floor. He also wanted to make the bar removeable to keep the value of the Jeep. After discussing various design options with him, we formulated a plan that would provide added safety while enabling him to remove the bar if needed.

We started by removing some rusted spots from the floor and welding in new sheetmetal patches. We then custom-bent 1.75" DOM tube for the roll bar and welded the tubes to the floor plates. After fabricating lower floor plates to be attached under the body, we bolted the Jeep’s floor between the upper and lower plates, then welded the lower plates to the frame.

This design allows the roll bar to be unbolted and removed from the Jeep, while also allowing it to be anchored to the frame for added safety.
