Smittybilt discontinued K5 roll bar and cage kit?

A local 4Wheelparts employee told me this. I emailed the company about it, but haven't gotten a reply back yet.

You can go to www.4wheelparts.com and order one still, but I don't want to if they are no longer made.

I have also heard the same. I think they were bought out by Lund or someone else. Some aftermarket retailers still have product so they will still sell them as Smitybuilt.

I ordered a rollbar 3-4 months ago through
4WP...it shipped on Friday. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif[/img] I think you can still get them, but be prepared to wait. I was the third out of seven in line for one, and it still took many-a-moon. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif[/img]

When I talked to 4WPW they said SB only builds a few sets of these ONCE-A-YEAR! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

I just want the main hoop. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

I ordered directly from SmittyBilt a few years ago, that's the same exact thing they told me. They only run these kits basically on demand, they wait for a few orders to pile up, then make a few more than that, usally only 1-2 times a year...

S&W Race Cars makes a cage kit. Some folks run it from here. You should be able to get them for about $300 shipped (give or take $25) for a 10 point cage.... [img]/forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
