Features & Product Details

The RH4x4 Jeep bolt-in Sport Cage is the cornerstone of Rock Hard 4x4™ products. Developed first for the Jeep Wrangler TJ and proven after years and years of trail use and abuse - the RH4x4™ bolt-in Sports Cage has become one of the most popular safety upgrades in the Jeep aftermarket industry.

The Why - Factory Design Complications
The Wrangler JL almost didn't come to market with solid axles, and the Gladiator JT relied heavily on the JL design. Weight was a major factor in determining if the Wrangler would sacrifice off road capability for fuel mileage standards. In the end, and what we have today, is a Wrangler attempting to both satisfy regulations and maintain its heritage. To save weight, and save solid axles, the Jt engineers installed a very light weight, very thin wall (14 gauge), very body-integrated cage system.

The engineers produced an extremely hardened, odd shaped tubular design. In developing our Cage Brace System, we broke virtually every drill bit in our building. The tubing is unlike any material Jeep has ever used, certainly in the occupant safety realm. The shape requires a new way to install a Cage Brace System, and a back to the drawing board approach for us. After a fully year of research and development, we're proud to release our innovative design.

Installation
We promised we'd innovate a no-weld design, and we've done it. Our Cage Brace System strengthens the weak/vulnerable points in the OEM JT cage plus adds functionality. Our System does require some special tools but does not require welding.

Drilling - The new factory cage material, while only 14 gauge, is hardened. It takes a very slow (300 RPM ideal, 500 RPM max) drill process and a special hardened cobalt drill bit to penetrate. Your big box store drill bits will not work. The die grinder tree will help you remove burs and finish out the holes. You aren't required to purchase, but may very well need, an additional Drill Bit Pack.

Note:

  • Test fitting is required prior to powder coating / paint. While we make every effort to insure the highest quality parts arrive for install, Rock Hard 4x4™ cannot be held liable for any coating expenses on cage components.
  • Currently only factory hard top is compatible. We'll update once we test available soft top options.
