Rock Hard 4x4 is very proud to offer the first bolt-in Rear Cargo Accessory Bar for the Jeep Wrangler JK 4DR 2007 - 2018.
Please Note: Test fitting is required prior to powder coating / paint. While we make every effort to insure the highest quality parts arrive for install, Rock Hard 4x4 cannot be held liable for any coating expenses on cage components.
Want a sturdy and secure way to mount chase, dust, brake, or reverse/flood lights high up? This is the perfect mounting solution! Simply add our RH-1021 Accessory Mounting Brackets!
Similar to "wakeboard speaker bars", this Accessory Mounting bar gives you a safe, out of the way location to mount speakers, lights, or any camera equipment.
The RH4x4 Jeep bolt-in Sport Cage is the cornerstone of Rock Hard 4x4 parts. Developed first for the Jeep Wrangler TJ and proven after years and years of trail use and abuse - the RH4x4 bolt-in Sports Cage has become one of the most popular safety upgrades in the Jeep aftermarket industry.
We're going to get questions about "does this fit" and "how much room is there" but - that's the beauty of this bar, you can adjust all of it! The bar's width is set, but the height is completely up to you. The higher you move the bar up your rear 45-degree bars, the more room you have between the bar and the back of your hard/soft top. The lower you move the bar, the more "head room" you have.
Our proprietary locking collars are arguably the safest and most secure way to not only strengthen your Jeep's cabin but also provide you and your passengers the peace and mind that comes with a premium cage system. No other bolt-in cage comes close to the fitment, quality, and durability of our system.
Protected by Patent US6908107 and used in all our cage systems, our locking collars are the foundation for our Ultimate Sports Cage upgrade. Magazine editors, trail guides, wheelers from across the world, and even competitors have turned to our bolt-in cage for over a decade for their own vehicles. The strength our collars provide is inherent in how they couple our cage components together.
Our patent not only protects RH4x4 from domestic and overseas "knock-offs" but also gives you the peace of mind knowing we stand 100% behind our product. Our registration gives you the exact definition and purpose for our cage components. We encourage you to read our patent registration and see just how much thought, time, and care was put into our system. Why has no other manufacturer patented their cage system? Either its a copy of another system, or they simply don't feel confident enough in their development. Don't purchase a component that was simply meant to compete in a market, purchase a product that was born to create a market.
Success stories of our bolt-in Sports Cage are not hard to find. Virtually every Jeep forum online contains detailed user-installed threads and photos of how DIY'ers were able to not only install our cage but enjoy it run after run. This is THE Jeep cage.
With our patent secured over a decade ago we began production on our cages. Each collar, cap, and tube component in our system is produced in house. This gives us total control over manufacturing to ensure that once a system leaves our facility and gets installed in your Jeep, we know it will continue to uphold our sterling reputation.
Our locking collars and caps are solid 1/2" thick CNC machined steel and produced in house. Each cap is secured to it's matching collar with six 5/16" x 1" grade 8 socket head cap screws. Once a cap is secured to it's collar it becomes a solid, unbreakable joint. This means assembly and disassembly is achieved without welding or cutting which could potentially damage your Jeep's interior or expensive cage powder coat/paint finish.
Our tubing, which connects our collars, is made from extremely strong 1 3/4" .120 wall steel tube and are precisely cut and fit for your Jeep model. There is no guess work when it comes to which component installs where. Each collar is expertly hand welded to it's matching tube section and can only install one way.
Ease of Installation
Thanks in part to our collar design there is no need to ship you a completely welded together cage system that requires major vehicle disassembly. Simply powder coat or paint the color of your choice and use our easy to follow instructions to complete your own install.
The secret behind our system's ease of install is precise fitment. From our dash bar that retains use of your tweeter speakers to our overhead streamer, each component is an exact fit for your model Jeep.
What comes in every kit:
- Accessory Mount Bar
- Collar Caps
- Installation Instructions
Three Reasons Why:
- Patented design
- Decades of proven strength
- Unmatched quality and fitment
There is nothing wrong with a race ready, NHRA/JeepSpeed/NASCAR/WRC/F1 approved, sonic tested, x-ray verified, high velocity impact tested, fully welded cage custom designed for your individual race vehicle. Except of course, the unaffordable price, massive vehicle disassembly, user unfriendly nature, and it goes without saying - non DIY install requirements. Those are just a few of the reasons we prefer our bolt-in method. Our RH4x4 bolt-in ready cage eliminates the headaches of a fully welded in cage for the wheeler from all walks of life yet provides an unbelievably strong, proven cage design.
How secure is the RH4x4 locking collar?
If we didn't believe 100% in our collar design we wouldn't run it in our own rigs. It's patented design provides an unbreakable joint and you can feel confident will keep you and your passengers safe for a lifetime of trail use.
Can I reinstall my factory cage padding?
Yes, we left if off in the product photos to show ease of installation.
Do I have to remove my hard top or soft top prior to installing this cage?
No! You can install this without removing your hard or soft top.
Does this work bar with the factory soft top?
Yes, but you may have to loosen soft top hardware prior to folding down so it may clear the accessory mounting bar. Please note, we have discovered a fitment issue with "spring assist" soft tops. The RH-1034 is not compatible with the spring assist mechanism.
Is any welding required?
No. Our locking collars allow for a DIY no-weld, truly bolt-in install.
What finish is available?
Our cage systems ship in a raw, bare metal finish. This prevents potential shipping damage but more importantly allows you the freedom to select your own color locally. Continue a color theme into your cabin for a more unique, your Jeep look!
Where is this mount made?
This product, like all RH4x4 parts, was designed, developed, tested, manufactured, and if applicable, powder coated, and shipped in the USA. And we don't mean the 75% legal standard to be able to say Made in USA. We are 100% Made in the United States of America!
