Roll Cage Hand Hold
It should go without saying that you never, and we mean NEVER, use the roll cage as a hand hold. But time and time again we see people reaching up and grabbing onto that bar as an extra hand hold. The passenger in his Wrangler is extremely lucky that he didn’t suffer a serious injury during this Jeep rollover. This is what not to do!

Roll Cage Testing
Auto manufacturers attempt to simulate “real life” situations all the time in order to see how well their vehicles hold up in certain scenarios. When it comes to off-roading, there’s really no sacrifice for real-time experience. If any manufacturers are looking for a roll cage durability specialist, we hear this guy has some availability.

Bill Caswell decided he needed a break from the adult life. He left his banking job and decided to go racing. In recent years he has tackled rally racing and other forms of car racing, but now he plans to fulfill a dream of competing in the 2010 SCORE Baja 1000. Caswell and crew actually set up shop at Miller Electric’s booth at the 2010 SEMA Show building his signature, early-90s BMW into a Baja-capable race vehicle to compete at the 1000.

The plan of attack was a four-day build at SEMA was this:

Day 1 – Main Roll Cage

Day 2 – Front Cage & Suspension

Day 3 – Rear Cage & Suspension

Day 4 – Main Cage, Accessories & Final Review
