Family Style Roll Bar

I have an 89 YJ Islander edition. It has the old CJ style roll bar that really doesn't cover the back seat very well. Where can I get a family stly roll bar that will bolt right in when I remove the old roll bar without having to make any mods?

I have heard that you can swap in one from a later model yj and it bolts up perfectly. But i have heard that some had to make minor modifications like elongating the holes to get the bolts to fit

edit: heres a thread that will answer most of your questions

I would check on Craigs List for a family style cage. One from a '92-'95 should bolt right in. You may have to elongate a couple holes to get it to fit. I did this swap, it was a little more work than I though just because some of the bolts were tough to get out but I managed, a little heat from a torch would probably help a lot.
