Use a port a power and push it back out the best you can. If there are any bent parts you are in luck because the teryx cage is made up of multiple pieces that all just bolt together and they are not real expensive. Replace any parts that got bent very much because they will be weaker after your roll over.

If the cage is trashed have a custom cage made. The stock cage isnít awesome.

How would I know if that frame is bent? That’s what I’m worried about? And what is a port a power exactly

You can order all the pieces that are bent at partzilla.com

It's unlikely you bent the frame, but to know that you will need to check all the welds and joints for any cracks/bulging or paint loss.

The frame itself is fairly robust, if you bent the frame it is most likely the half round frame extensions where the cage uprights are bolted on. A portapower is basically a small hydraulic jack with extensions and multiple ends that can be used to do some pretty heavy duty pushing/bending.

This is a porta power pushing a cage back after a roll over. Just get it back in shape then replace any sections of the cage that are still bent or wrinkled.

As stated above you can buy each piece of the rollcage. If you look at the cage and follow it down you can see where it bolts on to the frame at the A, B, and C pillars....look for two big bolts right where the body plastics starts at each location. Did a quick look at the parts catalog online and if you got the entire cage it's probably around $1,000. Looks to be 11 pieces, though good chance not all of them would need replaced. Any tube that has any deformation (kinking, bend, etc...) should be replaced as you have lost some strength in it. For that price, and if you plan to keep running it the same way, you might want to look into having a custom cage built. That $1,000 would go a long way to a custom one and would have a much bettter chance of surviving without damage.

Another item worth having... full coverage insurance! After that, all you need worry about is the deductible and that everyone is OK afterwards

Insurance should cover actual loss value, irregardless of what was financed. A.k.a., replacement value. And that should, at least partially, include accessories.
