10-4 on the cast mounts. Cast iron is not very ductile and will crack or break. Good ol steel mounts is a best.

That sucks. Even if you add a better upper cage the cast iron is still on the bottoms

I'd like to see pics of this. After removing my cage and reinstalling it, I'm kinda surprised how thin the bolts are. I don't think they're grade 8 either. I'm thinking maybe they snapped the bolts off, the mounts are pretty thick.

In addition to adding 2 more bars to the roof, I'm going to be swapping out all of the bolts with thicker ones in grade 8.

Are we for sure that these mounts are this way or are we going in circles off second hand info not yet verified true? This is reminding me of the internet rumor that Wildcat cranks are snapping and we all know the real story behind that.

When you say "mount" are you talking the cage bungs??????? You would have to be there is no other place that anything is mounted the rest of the frame is all one piece.

Hope they come out of it ok.

eventually more parts will be available for the WC.
Here is an example of aftermarket cage mounts on the RZR. These are made by Racer Tech:

The wildcat doesnt have mounts like the rzr. It bolts directly to the frame. Without seeing actual pictures of the cage its all heresay as to what really happened. Hope they get through ok.
