Ranger Roll Bar

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever heard of a case where the roll bar crushed or callapsed when the vehicle tipped over? Specifically the 700 series?

Depends on the design and material. I rolled a Jeep once and the roll bar failed. This is why I just beefed up my cage on my Trooper. Was way too cheap & weak from the factory. Hope everyone was OK.

Take care,

      If any of Joyner owners are out and about, could you please let me know what your engine RPMs vs Vehcile speed is when you're in 5th gear?  My Renegade sounds like it's wound up real tight when traveling.  For instance, I get about 10 mph per 1,000 RPMs while in 5th gear (45 mph = 4500 RPMs).  Is that normal?  I'm used to lower RPMs.  Other ATVs & UTVs running round my neighborhood that sound like their engine RPMs aren't that high.

      Dirt Riot is hosting an off-road endurance racing in Vernal, UT on May 13th. We are looking for volunteers to help set up and work the event. Have you ever wanted to be behind the sense of the events you love to watch? Want free entry to the event and exclusive Dirt Riot t-shirt? Then come help us put on a great show. This is a fun way to help your off-road community grow, get personal time with the professional competitors and best of all get the best seats in the house for all the action. If you are more interested in competing alongside some of the best teams in the country, we would love to have you compete with us. Our classes are designed to fit a wide range of off-road vehicles. Most trail rigs only take a few safety modifications to pass our tech inspection, and they are items every trail rig should have anyways. Check out our rule book for more information!

      We are looking for course workers with recovery rigs and set up help. As a course worker, you will basically just have the best seats in the house and get a t-shirt for helping out. We will position workers around the course with radios to keep the event coordinators informed about what is happen on the course. You will also need a vehicle with mild off-road capabilities and a reliable winch. If are able come out before the event we would love a hand getting the event site ready. We put on 18 events during the summer months and we cannot do it without volunteers like you.



      About Dirt Riot

      What is Dirt Riot Endurance Racing? In short, Awesome! If you are looking for the most fun and competitive off-road racing series that anyone from weekend wheelers to professional race teams can compete in, you have found it. Dirt Riot sets up races all across the U.S. each course and location brings new challenges for competitors. The courses typically range from 4-8 miles in length and each race is timed for 1-3 hours, depending on class, the team that completes the most laps in that time wins. Push your rig too hard and you will not last the full race, drive too mildly and fall behind the pace. The key is to learn the track and know your rig’s capabilities. Spectators will enjoy seeing competitors drifting corners, hitting jumps, and taking on difficult rock sections. Dirt Riot has the same race classes as Ultra4 as well as a few more to allow anyone to bring their rig out and compete. Most trail rigs can pass inspection with little to no modifications. This is perfect for a club trail day, challenge your club members to a full race then stay and watch the pros race on the same course you just did.

Their mission is to provide extremely high quality UTV components at competitive prices. A user-friendly brand with the idea of bringing race inspired UTV products to the market they are dedicated to delivering products that provide customers with the best experiences. The company specializes in roll cages, roofs, windshields, bumper kits, suspension components, tire jacks, tire carriers, and accessories for the popular UTV models such as the Polaris RZR and Yamaha YXZ. Founded by Chad Ragland and Danny Gormican, their unique approach has quickly impacted the industry and established the company as the go-to leaders in the market space. CageWrx brings proven off-road race technology and performance parts to UTVs while simultaneously providing fabricators, retailers and customers âdo it yourselfâ and completed solutions in the aftermarket product arena.<br /><br />CageWrx is extremely proud to introduce their third roll cage design for the Polaris RZR XP 1000. Following the tremendous success of the Race Cage and Super Shorty, CageWrx is now offering the Baja Spec UTV roll cage. The companyâs first âflat roofâ design, the Baja Spec filled a gap for UTV racers and enthusiasts who prefer a flat roof profile on their UTV. The Baja Spec is also the first UTV roll cage from CageWrx to come with 1.75â diameter main tubes and 1.5â diameter internal tubes, all .095â wall thickness, allowing this roll cage to meet stringent rule requirements set by SCORE International⢠and Best in the Desert. While the Baja Spec is a perfect cage for racers looking for an affordable quality roll cage solution, it also has mass appeal to the UTV market looking for a non-radius roof line design. The Baja Spec roll cage for the Polaris RZR is available as a knock-down or do-it-yourself kit and as a fully assembled roll cage including roof. CageWrx offers global shipping for both options. Like all CageWrx roll cages, the Baja Spec is designed for safety and strength. High quality material, engineered CAD models, and precision machinery all work in harmony to produce the Baja Spec UTV roll cage.<div><br /></div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-tUZZx2S8GKo/V83dTDtMaBI/AAAAAAAARNg/YvpaoPtIOzcmFV0dbPc_GcUmIcf_Q8aLQCLcB/s1600/CageWrx-cage-2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img alt="Polaris RZR XP 1000" border="0" height="266" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-tUZZx2S8GKo/V83dTDtMaBI/AAAAAAAARNg/YvpaoPtIOzcmFV0dbPc_GcUmIcf_Q8aLQCLcB/s400/CageWrx-cage-2.jpg" title="Polaris RZR XP 1000" width="400" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption">Polaris RZR XP 1000</td></tr></tbody></table><div><b>About the owners and Company:</b> Chad Ragland has competed in many forms of racing and his competitive drive has helped him launch and run several successful businesses. When Chad started racing UTVs he got the idea to develop parts when he started modifying his own Polaris RZR XP1000. Chad quickly realized the machines had real performance potential by applying race-worthy parts. He wanted to apply the principles of custom Trophy Truck designs to his RZR. Back in 2007, Chad was running a Trophy Truck team and it was there that he first met Danny Gormican. Danny has designed and fabricated for top desert racing teams as well as vehicle aftermarket products. Both are off-road enthusiasts and motorcycle riders and it was a natural progression for them to embrace the new SXS that arrived on the market. They both enjoyed their new vehicles but saw a need in the market for something more. By combining their individual expertise from the Professional Motorsports industry CageWrx was born. Originally their focus was on the racing performance aspect but they quickly realized there was a bigger demand.<br /><br />CageWrx is able to engineer and manufacture high quality products based on their extensive knowledge in Professional Motorsports. They are recognized as a superior and innovative parts provider in the UTV aftermarket. All of their products are engineered to the highest standards using machinery and automated processes to maintain quality. By leveraging very sophisticated machinery - products are 100% CNC laser cut - and running production in large volume they are able to provide exceptional value to the customer. Ready to weld kits make it possible to put together in your own garage or by your local fabrication shop in a matter of hours. They also have a great Dealer Program in place offering new business opportunities and promoting growth in the UTV segment of the market.<br /><br />For more information about CageWrx, visit <a href="http://www.cagewrx.com/">www.cagewrx.com</a><br /><br /> Located in Perris, CA, CageWrx brings race inspired and proven aftermarket accessories to the UTV market while empowering DIY solutions for fabricators, retailers and UTV owners.
