I added a 1.75" DOM bar on the the cage on both sides ... top front to rear on the outside edge at the very top where the factory rollbar bends, and a 1 3/4" x 3" sq. tube 120 wall seat belt bar behind the seats.
between the three bars the factory sq. tube roll cage in MUCH stronger .. I didn't like the X brace as the only top connection leaving the outside front to rear unprotected .. I'm a tall guy and didn't think my head needed to be the roll cage. IMHO a helmet is a no brainer .. ya don't get in the seat without one ! .. I have been on my side once and twice where trees were holding me from going on over .. the plastic roof was holding the rig from going to the X-brace on the tree each time ..
