We build ours pretty close to this aswell only major difference is we use oilfield pipe because we live in an oilfield and can get pipe for free. Main thing is like stated before what protectors do you run and how can you benefit from how you build your cage also what your cage rules are would determine how high I'd go aswell. For example if your allowed down bars it wouldn't bother me to run it high then run another door bar lower than the top door bar so you wouldn't have to worry about bumper shots if that's a concern you have then just gusset the crap out of it lol

If you think your protectors can handle the stress I’d use the cage to help keep the front end down, just think things out and figure out what would be the best way to go about things. Ultimately you choose what it best because you have the best idea out of everyone on how the rest of the car will be set up
Im guessing I kick my middle bar over further then most, I have never been a fan of having it super close to right hip and then I can mount shifter on the inside of bar to drop it down a little bit. Mostly about comfortableness in car for me.
I run my dash bar right above steering column. I don’t like it below column. Side bars angle down from dash bar to seat bar. Seat bar is set a bit lower just because column isn’t in way. My side bars are usually 1/3 of door down from the top.
