Question Modify the stock roll cage?

Has anyone bothered to modify the stock rzr cage? I specifically would like to lower the rear section (on the upper top section) 2" to 3" to flatten out the look and still use the oem hard roof and zip cut the drop down back piece so it doesn't interfere with the rear upper cross bar? I just I would ask if somebody has done this to see what it looks like but if not I will send a pic when I do it.

We chopped the stocker down 6"s in the rear and added some bars.







Also added a 2" Racer Tech lift, its nice!

That is a nice job. thanks for sharing. I am puzzled, a bit, however on what you cut to lower the rear section... also, I run a full windshield so I am assuming that with your setup I could still use it?? ... and those A-arm guards you have look awesome ... homemade??? thanks.

The a arm guards are from - Extreme Metal Products, LLC.

Yes the factory windshield will work.

Look at the two pics and you'll see were the 6" was taken out.

Re: Modify the stock roll cage?

I really like the look. Can't believe that is the stock cage cut down. So did things line up fine? Just a cut and weld? Seems like it would change the angle on the front mounts etc.

Re: Modify the stock roll cage?

You have to spread the rear bars at the top and cut the top cross bar off and add a longer one. I also added some support bars and a dash bar to mine.
