The Poison Spyder Lazer-Fit™ Full Cage Kit is a complete, weld-in cage designed with hard core four-wheeling in mind. It represents a combination of maximum functionality and unmistakable Poison Spyder style. This version is designed specifically for YJ and CJ-7, and comes with every piece of tubing or plate steel component you need to assemble a complete Poison Spyder Full Cage. The Lazer-Fit™ system provides an un-matched ease of installation with CNC laser-notched tubes and laser-etched assemly marks.
All of our Full Cage Kits now feature Poison Spyder's exclusive Lazer-Fit™ system to ensure precise fit and easy installation. The Lazer-Fit™ system involves every aspect of the component, from 3-D CAD design to production on state-of-the-art machinery, to easy, worry-free installation. The entire assembly is fully engineered in 3-D design software, using an actual 3D model of the specific vehicle to ensure the best fit and use of space. Plate steel components are CNEC laser cut and precision brake-formed. Tubular components are laser-cut, laser-notched and laser-etched to exact tolerances thene CNC bent for a quality-assured, precise fit. The result is a kit of parts that match and fit each other perfectly, with no need for forther grinding, notching, fitting or cussing. Assembly guides are laser-etched right onto the surface of the tube, precisely denoting where the perfectly notched end of one tube joins the surface of the other. May joints are actually "keyed" with laser-cut tabs in the tube ends that precisely engage into slots cut into the adjoinging piece, making it nearly impossible to assemble the cage incorrectly. Components are also etched with part identification marks to take all the guesswork out of assembling your cage. Lazer-Fit™ cuts the assembly time in half (or more!), compared to competitors' cage kits.
All Poison Spyder tubular components are made of DOM (Drawn Over Mandrel) tubing. The DOM manufacturing process strengthens the tubing and gives it more uniform, precise dimensions that are better suited both to the high precision manufacturing methods of a Lazer-Fit cage as well as the high stress job a cage performs. DOM is stronger in tension, compression, bending, and against denting than the more popular (and more widely used by our competitors) HREW tubing.
New for the YJ, this Lazer-Fit™ Full Cage Kit incorporate full DOM floor-to-cieling tubular A-Pillars rather than the formed plate steel A-pillars provided in previous versions.
Increased Head Room
The Lazer-Fit™ Full Cage Kit was recently re-designed to provide approximately 3/4" more head room, while still fitting under the factory hard and soft top. The design of the center stringer tubes was re-configured to provide maximum head room further forward. The rear passenger area also recieved increase headroom, and there's also more room for the hard top rear window wiper motor.
The B-Pillar is the most important structural member of the cage. The B-Pillar tube in the Poison Spyder Lazer-Fit Full Cage was recently re-designed to both increase its strength and provide more interior room. The B-Pillar now hugs the inside walls of the Jeep's tub and top more closely, providing more room inside the cabin. And we've included weld-in bolt sleeves and 1/2" Grade 8 bolts that tie the cage in to the OE roll bar brackets on the inside of the cage's tub, providing extra strength to both the cage and the side of the Jeep's body tub. At the top, the B-Pillar connection to the cage assembly is strengthened with laser-notched 90° tube gussets.
Laser Etched Drill Marks
Not only are assembly marks laser etched into the cage tubes, but we've also etched drill marks for re-installation of many OE components such as soft top door surrounts, speaker pods, soft top bow brackets and seat belts (see optional seat belt brackets below). Etching these drill locations makes it easy for those who want to re-install these components, but also leaves the tube intact and un-drilled for those who choose not to install certain components.
