Need help finding harness bar.

Hey guys I can't seem to find a weld in harness bar for racing style harnesses seatbelts anywhere. I have found a weld in bar for a TJ for around $50. But for the YJ I have only found the Rock Hard 4x4 clamp on bar for $150. Any help would be appreciated.

Are you referring to a 5 point harness? If so then just adding the back bar is not a true way of installing one. The right way is to install all points to a cage that the seat is attached to. This way the belts cant pull threw the sheet metal, or the seat cant rip from the its base.


Plus the angle of the back bar has to be installed correctly and using proper made seats or more harm can come from not being done right.


Jason.

1993 YJ 4.0 60 Front, Rear steer 60, bolth spooled, 5.38's, 700r/241 39.5 iroks and beating it like it owes me money.

And on the 8th day, God created the 14 bolt...

this is what I use. Rubicon seats with the 5th point going through the floor with washers designed for the stress.

Jason.
Everything is being secured properly and a proper seat is being used. I just need to get a bar for the shoulder straps to go across the roll bar.

The link you posted brings me to a Miata roll bar.

I don't have a tube bender to use. I need a bar pre-bended to fit.

I think I could buy the TJ bar and if it doesn't fit the width I need I could chop it, reinforce and re weld it to fit the needed width.

Ugh, that was supposed to be a link to the Rock Hard bar. Why not just use that?

Lol. I would use that, but I'd rather save 100 dollars and weld a bar in. But at this rate the Rockhard bar seems to be my only prefabbed option anyways.

I doubt you're going to find anything that will save $100 other than finding a local shop to cut and bend you a piece of tube. For online options, I'd call one of these guys.... https://atozfabrication.com/ or http://www.trailtubes.com/

If you go custom route just make sure that it extends behind the main hoop or you will lose several inches of leg room.
