Show bar or legit rollbar?
I can't remember how i came by mine, but its called a Bigfoot showbar. i think. originally it was a double front bar. but i didn't like that, so i made it single. however. mine is the ONLY one i've ever seen with a bent bar going to the bed, i've always seen them strait.

Its in the winter, but its the best picture i have to show the bar.

the front bar will have to be bent inwards at the bottom where it meets the bed, mines something like 10 degrees. since your bed is going to be a bit smaller, it'll be a more sharper angle, but you can always bend it a bit more once its in the bed, mine used to touch both sides of the bed and you couldn't even get some paper in there. after i sercured one side about a 1/16th away from the bedside, i just pulled the other untill it bent enough.

I bought a roll bar for a regular bed for about $40. I had to cut it to make it fit. But I'd recommend buying one off craigslist or ebay rather than buying an expensive brand new one.
