Default Exo cage

I'v been kicking around the idea of either finishing my exo or building an interior roll cage to protect my family.I know the exo wont protect the body very well because of the size of the cab but as long as we're safe inside during a roll I don't mind some body damage and it would be simpler to build.Let me know what you guys think,this is what I have now.

Wow, if it was me, I guess I'd try to go exo and maybe a serious 4 point harness.

Anything added to the stock cage can only help
On my QC '09, there is a wide roof protection bar right between the B pillars & smaller one at the rear of the cab.
I have another set of 1 1/4 inch bars just in back of the cab, it is for a sign, but would have to help if the Ram should roll over

Looks like it got tired and decided to take a nap...

My bike decided to do that in the driveway two weeks ago, but THAT only cost me $35.00 for a turn signal. Uh good thing you don't have turn signals?
