honestly i like the full cage. You can get a net like the JK guys have and be able to retain the storage room, mounting, etc. And its different!

Looks good. I like your Exo Cage. The only thing I would do differently if I were to put one on mine is to add a tube from the bottom to the top where the B pillar is. I know it can interfere with the doors if not done right.
