the tubings pretty frickin tough and thick, its not like the thing stuff that they make the nerf bars and stuff with, if i were to weld it together, tie it into the frame, and but more bracing on it, it would hold im pretty sure, but there only one way to find out and im not gonna find out on purpose

I'm sure if you do all that you'll be better off than not having it, but some people think just because it's called a roll bar it'll save them and their truck if they roll....not the case.

Jason, looks good man. Glad you like it, and glad that your putting it to use. It just wouldn't have looked good on my truck. I've got 2 sets of lights that i'll give you for it. one set is 5x7 driving, and the other is a 4" set of driving as well. Let me know which ones you want, and i'll send them to you. I told you that you might get some smack talking from a few members...lol

I've never been a huge fan of rollbars, but it don't look bad at all.

I'm not smack talking at all, I just don't want someone to have a false sense of security.

Don't try to fool yourself or us. you can weld the thing on, and add some braces, but, it still won't protect your truck in a rollover.
