My roll bar swap with pictures

2 bolts gave me some trouble so I had to drill out the centers and chisle off the heads, a very easy job. I was then able to go under the jeep and turn out the remainder with visegrips. No thread damage

I then removed the loose rust and POR15 it, then covered that with rustolium balck

Heres the old one out and the new one waiting to go in
[IMG][/IMG]
Heres the Jeep without the roll bar

The easiest way to remove the top if you have a garage and no one to help you. 4 tie down straps and 2 hooks in the rafters. Pull up on the straps and drive away

The rain started

The jeep is now in the garage with no top or roll bar.
The POR is drying so I may finish tonight or tomorrow.
Now I have to deceide if i want the hard top back on or convert to the soft top.
Im leaning towards the soft, ony a few days till it gets warm, Right???

Your Jeep just looks silly without a roll bar

Nice work!
