I have seen a lot of roll cages that bolt in, usually with a 1/4 inch 4X6 inch plate at the bottom of the leg and one under the bottom of the floor held together with 9/16 grade 8 bolts. You can also sleeve the tubes to fit together and then run bolts to hold it together. Be advised that that a sleeved cage will never pass tech by any racing sanctioning body and that they are are not near as strong as a fully welded cage or roll bar.
