I always remove the top. I'm real particular about how my cage fits and is assembled, and I have seen too many cages that just make me cringe. Its usually obvious that a person put a cage in with the top on, because so many of them aren't welded proberly or use gussest to connect them to other parts of the cage. I temporarily put braces in the door jams, and wack the top off. This way I can notch the tubing right and get a good weld all the way around. just my .2 cents

we cut the top off the car i have right now. that was because we put in a cage and part of a frame from a modified. turned out great. we even lowered the top to fit the cage.
