After going to the local OHVs a few times, my JLU is taking quite a beating from branches. I know most people with limb risers are doing it for cosmetic reasons, but I'm looking for some truly functional risers to get the branches up and over the hood/pillars/windshield. What's out there? I see a few kits out there that drill/rivet to the inner A pillar, but I will have a Maximus-3 roof rack going on in a few weeks and would highly prefer to tie in to that. Thoughts?
Cordless reciprocating saw, no more branches.

Wanted to say thank you to @BullMoose1776 for putting this together. Just made a set of these myself for my 392 from this list. Way sleeker than anything else out there. Love the minimalist look to them.

Here's the list:

You can choose any brand of Limb Risers you want, and you might be able to start there and make them work. I didn't like the heavy turnbuckles. I just wanted a sheathed wire, so that made it much more complex (and costly) for me to complete.

STEINJAGER: Qty: 1, SJ Part# J0030493, Price Each $50.99, Description: 5 Pack, 1/4-28 x 1/4-28 Stainless Steel Quick Disconnect Cable Ball Joint, SQi250 $50.99

WICKS AIRCRAFT SUPPLY: Stud End; Break Strength Min :2000; Cable Diameter 1 :1/8; Sold By: Each; Thread Size: 1/4-28 $7.00 (x8) (you need 4 but you should Buy 8 in case you miss measure, which is easy to do.) $56

AMAZON: Muzata 165ft Black Vinyl Coated Wire Rope 1/8" Overmolded to 3/16" for 1/8" Black Cable Railing System Stainless Steel Aircraft Cable 7x7 Strand Indoor Outdoor Decking Stair Balustrade DIY WR17 WP1 (165 FEET) $75

How have they been working for you? I'm considering picking this project up again, especially since it looks like you have the same roof rack as I do.

This looks perfect, awesome job!!!
I'm hoping to ask for some help, I'm having a hard time find and search the product from Wicks Aircraft Supply, any chance you can find the link or product number? Thank you.

I haven't done this mod but I believe this is what you're looking for.
MS21259-4RH (shows out of stock)
You would strip the overmold on the portion of cable that inserts into cable end and crimp
with the Wire Swaging Tool.

What a great job. One question I have is why didn't you go this route from Steinjager? Steinjager sells these https://steinjager.com/shop/Exterio...IY-Cables-49.5-inches-overall-length-J0045635 which can be bought at different lengths. I bought them for my JK and just use a set of mounts similar to what you used "AMAZON:KOLEMO Limb Risers Kit Compatible with for 1997-2021 Jeep Wrangler JK/TJ/JL Through The Jungle Protector Obstacle Eliminate Rope $40". It would save on the extra stuff needed. Or am I missing something? Thanks
