Up to '95 will bolt in but will require some ovaling of the bottom holes for the bolts that go thru floor. Not that big of a deal. When you install/purchase family style bar it's nice to have the rear shoulder seat belts for the back seat riders. That was the main reason for putting mine in, kids can have shoulder belts and I could run the safari top to help keep the sun off of the back seat. Good luck.

Okay, I'm bumping this back up to the top because I want to install a family rollbar in my 87 wrangler. Thing is I found one from a 2004 TJ - will it fit? I still haven't seen it, I'm talking with the guy I can get it for about $100 and that's with the sound bar.
Thanks for the info Rusty, it's so hard to find things without the search option. On the mods, is that for the back mounting or the front included. I know I would have to modify for the shoulder mounted seatbelts if I kept them in the back. But if I just kept my lap belts instead?
Well, I know the tub between the YJ and TJ is different in width. From the stuff I have read, the roll bar is slightly wider in the YJ than the TJ. Yes in the back. Still doing some reading on it for ya, cuz now I am curious as to what is actually the difference.

I figured out what the deal is. The front main hoop mounts are the big issue as well as the connection to the windsheild. Here is a herc thread in the TJ section that has some good pics of how they are mounted. Way too much work IMHO.
If is worth anything, I just put the family style rollbar in my 89' off of a 92'. Some slight grinding with a dremel to the bottom holes on the front braces and it was good to go. Regarding seat belts...Bought brand new ones off of Quadratec and they work great.
I see. The bottom of the front hoop is on the floor - flat, whereas the 87 is attached to the upright portion of the tub. Even with all my masterful skills of welding I don't think I could pull it off and make it look descent. Thanks for your help. I guess I'm better off look for a bolt in model.
