Here's how I did mine On my old YJ:





Inside, I cut out the rot, put in new sheet metal, and put new plates on the bottom of the b-pillar since those had some rot too. Then I drilled holes through the new base plate and used grade 8 hardware to bold the outer plate to the inner, sandwiching the body.

The rubber isolators keep vibes down.

Did similar for the a-pillar:

I have been researching this too. I want to tie in the pillars when I do the glass tub. I do a lot of leg work before I pull the trigger on doing something. Here are some links for you to look at. Please let me kow what you decide. It might help guide me too.

These are what I came up with:

Used these in the B-pillar, then copied them and made my own for the A.
http://www.polyperformance.com/shop/...Kit-p-433.html

Then I used some excess tubing to run it to the frame. You could easily cut these all yourself, but since I copied their design, I decided to buy at least one pair.

FWIW, I intentionally mounted the A and B pillar tie ins 90 degrees off to combat the "pivot" issue that some have suggested may occur in a hard roll.

Ended up selling the Jeep prior to ever doing the C-pillar tie in, plan was to do them the same way with a longer tube.
