Designed To Fit With The Stock Mustang Interior
What's in the Box
(1) Roll Cage Assembly
Maximum Motorsports Roll Bar
Increase both safety and the rigidity of your 1979-93 Mustang's chassis with a Maximum Motorsports Roll Cage. Intended for the rigors of drag racing, these MM rollcages conform to NMRA and NHRA rules. Designed to fit with the stock Mustang interior, To keep delivery costs to a minimum, Maximum Motorsports designed these roll bars to ship with the rear braces detached. This requires a minimal amount of welding during installation to secure the rear braces to the main hoop.
Designed With Consumers In Mind
Contour-hugging 6" x 6" mounting pads with backup plates, better than any you've seen, sandwich the unibody for safe and strong mounting. The front seats are accessed using Maximum Motorsports bolt-in or swing-out door bars. While both bars meet the NHRA rules, the swing-out door bars pivot outward, parallel with the doors, for easy entry. They can also be completely removed from the car in a matter of seconds! The bolt-in door bars are designed for easy initial installation (no welding), but are not intended to be removed.
Unlike some roll bars, our rear braces do not extend rearward of the centerline of the rear axle. This design maintains a crush zone at the rear of the car for optimum safety.
High Quality Construction
MM roll bars are uncoated, bare steel. For a high quality finish, the installer should paint or powder coat the roll bar after the welding is completed. Made of 1-3/4" diameter by 0.134" wall DOM tube (much stronger than the more commonly used 0.120" wall ERW seamed tubing).
During installation the rear braces are bolted to the main hoop. This keeps the rear braces precisely aligned to the main hoop, allowing all welding to be done before the roll bar is installed in the car. This means you do not need to remove your car's interior to avoid damaging it while welding. To conform to the NHRA and NMRA rules, a qualified welder must use either the MIG or TIG welding process to weld the rear braces to the main hoop. We recommend that you get your own copy of the latest NHRA rules by calling them at 626-914-4761.
I recently purchased this kit from Scott Grimes, who BTW is awesome, The overall finish on the kit was amazing. I installed it with minor modifications over a couple of day period, my only complaint is this. I have the complete Stifflers FIT system also a GREAT product but due to the Jacking rails you cannot just bolt in this cage. The two outter most bolts do not clear the jacking rails. Also while the kit has all the hardware it would make your life much easier to purchase 3/8 1.5" bolts as the 1" seem too short in some cases. This is mainly a problem where the floor pan has its indentations it leaves you with maybe 2-3 threads coming through. All in all this is an excellent solution with minimal welding required its a true DIY kit but you might need a hand with getting it in your ride without scratching anything. I did it alone so it can be done but did chip my powdercoating in a spot!

I live in Canada which makes getting parts more difficult due to shipping and availability. I decided to try late model restoration out as they are Canada shipping friendly. The order went smoothly and the parts arrived, and were exactly as i expected. Then a problem arose with one item. Now being in Canada this usually makes this a very painful experience to deal with due to the cost of shipping products back and forth across the border. Most of the time it is just easier and cheaper to just order a new one and cut the loses. Not in this case. I sent out an email with the issue and by the time I went outside to take a picture i already had a response. A new product was shipped out immediately. I could not believe how good the customer service was. This will be where i will get what i need for now on. Anyone can sell a product but it is nice to have a company stand behind what they sell. Thanks again.
Saved this 1987 Fox from going to the crusher August of 2014. It was just a shell when i got it but it was a solid foundation with no rust. Took me 10 months and $9,000 to get it where it is today. ...
