rollbar!

got it halfway put together(for the 2nd time i got the wrong bolts for the back supports), but here is roughly what it will look like, i still gotta sand it and repaint it, then get it mounted but here are the pics! oh yah i left the lightbar off for now since i dont have any lights for it at the moment.

The yota was all black with black roll bar and off road lights if I remember correctly. I liked that truck alot it looked good in the movie. Your truck looks great with the bar as well very nice.

Dude not to be a ***, but if you roll the truck that thing will crumble. Yes its called a 'roll bar' but at heart all it is is a bar for looks. That will not protect you anymore if you flip the truck. Its all for looks

Those roll bars are all for looks. They might help some how but if you roll you're screwed and that bar won't do crap. Unless it's tied into the frame and that metal is very strong (enough to support the vehicle weight) which it isn't, it's just for mounting lights.
