    new era roll cage

    I purchased a new era roll cage, here is the problem I have with it. The cage would not fit on all stock Jato. It was to long and it was not square meaning when the front was in place the back was level. So no way to bend it back strait. Have to send it back for store credit only that sux. I do not recommend buying it.

    You can see the back of it is not square with the cage. It don’t take a rocket scientist to see it.

    well from a rocket scientists point of view... the front one isnt square to the cage... they mount leaning back so the stock body will clear...

    i think u need to put a straight edge on ur chasiss.... ur the only one i have ever heard say it won't fit, new era makes a good product, i dont use em but i have seen several of there stuff.

    like i said u may want a rocket scientists to look at ur chassis
    been there bought that

    I agree forbes. I have the NewEra wheelie bar and the wing mount and very pleased with the quality. All made especially to fit the Jato.

    Yes they do make good parts I have the roll bar to with no problems, front upper and lower reinforcment plates on no problem. I have two jato's, both new and about 3 weeks old now. One of them has not even been broke in yet. I got all parts at same time, before putting anything on the cars we checked the cage on BOTH cars. Bought 1 cage and 2 of the other two parts.

    I asked if you were talking about the one I posted in the link. That is the Roll Bar like Tony S. posted. Now I see you are talking about the Roll Cage. You never said which one. My fault, we should all be on the same page now. Thanks for the pics. They always help.
