I prefer latchlink, but both are perfectly fine.You are installing the cage first right? Not using a 5 point without one I hope.

i came across these http://store.summitracing.com/partde...rsview=sku&Ns= and they say Mounting Style: Bolt-in/Clip-in/Wraparound so im guessing that means i can do any of the 3 right??? what im thinking of doing since i dont have the cage yet is to buy a 5 point harness and set aside the shoulder straps till i get the cage. or what my dad just suggested is to beef up the ledge behind the seats under the back window and bolt in the shoulder straps there till i get the cage. any ideas on that??? or even any other ideas would be nice thanks
