Unfortunatly not mine. I think I am going to quit wheeling until I am out of college. It just costs to damn much to fix a DD, and I don't have the current cash flow to make my junk more capable for the type of wheeling I do.
Also, then I will have the cash flow for an SAS and a real bed cage. I started acquiring parts last summer, so far I have a 14bFF rear axle, a bunch of random tube I got dirt cheap, and two 4" lift TJ springs that were given to me.

Not a single one in this thread is a "roll" bar, they are all show bars, cause in a roll they would do nothing but fold up like tin cans. If your going to build your own it is possible to make it hold up to a roll, but for everyone calling them a roll bar, that is something they are not.

Good call, mine is more for a place for lights than anything. I know I sure would not trust it in a roll over. But it just seems like they are called roll bars by the general truck population.

Cody, what did you have to modify if anything on that roll bar to get it to work ? The one I had wouldn't fit right in my 93. I don't like the Ranger style that curves over the bed rails.

Depends on what kind of Tonneou cover you have. If you have a roll up cover you can have a someone cut hole in the cover around the bar and have it sewn up nice and neat.

I've seen a couple trucks at the local car cruise with a soft cover trimmed around the roll bar and I think it looks super clean.

A good boat shop will do it pretty cheap too from what I hear.

I got my "Light Bar" for $50 from a friend of mine. Im pulling it off, stripping it down and getting it powdercoated hopefully soon. A family member of mine actualy makes boat tops so Im looking for a roll-up tonneau cover if anyone is selling one.

Too bad mine got burnt up when my brother's truck caught fire. Truck Roll bar quoted me $570 + shipping for these.

I'm glad someone else said it.....

I wouldn't trust a single one of those in a roll......They look nice and hang lights well but thats it......

There is a reason they are called cages, if the occupants are not wrapped within there is no real protection, none. The materials they are made of need to be up to spec, something real and tied to the frame at every drop.....

If you are really taking it offraod hard do it right, its your butt.....if you are cruisin' the mall and need to hang some bling lights those are just fine......

I understand these are not intended for safety purposes but a buddy of mine rolled his Ranger and if it hadn't been for his bars, the cab woulda crushed him. He rolled it several times and they saved his butt.
