Never thought of it I guess, Ill be running some good bracing in the front part of the cage, And tying it into the frame in about 8 places, so I hope that will make up for it.

on the winsheild V if your goign to bend the header you want to support that bend or on a hard roll you the cage could buckle sideways.

and on the apillar/roof bars you want some support to the rear cage (c pillars) so the load gets transfered through the cage and doesnt' want to kink or bend the tube.
