I am in the portland oregon area and was wondering where the best place is for a roll cage(besides making it yourself). I am not going to be racing so I don't need any major specs, just a 4 point or 6 point.


Also I left it open if other people in other regions wanna say where they got thiers that would be ok, or if someone want to know in another area would be cool too.

I didn't know if blind chicken was makin them??

Hey. Im in the area (across the river in vancouver) and I'm looking for a place too. I haven't called yet but I know Autosport in Vancouver makes cages their number is 360-574-1081. So I'm not sure of the price but you could give them a call. Halseys might know of a place closer to you. Also try the 4x4 places I called Woodys in Vancouver, they can build you a cage, but youll have to show them one from a catalog cause they dont build them often if ever for bajas.

you could always call chirco or visit them at www.chirco.com. they have cages and will cut them to ship in what ever form you like. when you receive it, you assemble and weld it in place.

After building a few of them I found that getting the chenowth class 11 cage and modifying it to what you want is the cheapest way to go. The full custom cages take about three times longer to install but it is only money right?

You can come by the shop and I can show you both.

"Wheres the best place for a roll cage?",,,usually inside the car! Laughing Can't believe baja fun didn't catch that one Very Happy No, really. I've seen chirco's cages. they do a quality job for a really good price. Thats the cage I'm gonna use when I'm ready. I'd bend my own. but lack a good tubing bender. Go to Chirco.com and ask what kind of support they offer. I'd bet you'd be supprised. Good luck to ya.

So its me from vancouver agian. On my search for the roll cage for my baja I found out that Auto sport will only do like a 4pt. HOWEVER! Oregon motorsport although busy until the end of september gave me a reasonable guesstimate of 150 for a 6pt roll cage.

discount import has them over in millwakie for $159, same as the chirco one I belive. they are considered "show" cages. I mainly need it to help reinforce the v6 out back. I am not gonna run it for racing and I got some tubing to help reinforce things.

I purchased a 4 pt "show-cage" from CHIRCO several months ago. It looks great and fit ok with a little banging. It actually added a noticeable stiffness to my '64 baja. Get a buddy to help you install it. I did it myself and while fitting the cage, it fell forward and broke out my windshield!
