Better? Depends. What are your definitions of better? Weight? Strength? Ability to roll and maintain sheetmetal? What are you looking for?

Easier? Depends. How complicated do you want to make it? A full exo takes a lot more tube and bending than an in-cab cage. If you want an in-cab cage, just buy one. That's about as easy as it gets  :gap:

If it is your only vehicle, you drive it to the trail, or you would like to be able to keep the rain/snow out when wheeling in the winter, you will want to go w/an exo-cage.  While an interior cage will protect the occupants, your vehicle is usually left unusable to drive on the street after a rollover.
