There are a few pics of them in the YJ wheelin sticky.

As far as needed for daily driving, the windsheild frame becomes the support for your roll cage in a rollover. I would not drive without it personally.

Most aftermarket roll cages get rid of the point where it ties into the windshield frame.
Yes you can run it without those bars and just the plates at the bottom.
As Rusty said though that is part of the factory cage.

93 YJ SOA 2" springs front, XJ springs rear w/main leaf added, High pinon 9 inch rear detroit locker front Dana 44 ARB 4.56 Gears, 36 inch Irok tires too much to list.

On my '91, the lower brackets are enough to hold the windshield fairly steady (not too sturdy though). I haven't noticed much extra vibration from the windshield. My stock support bars are permanetly removed since I built a cage.

Your insurance agent or local law enforcement folks are probably the most qualified to answer your "have no issues" question if that's the type of advice you're looking for from a safety/legal standpoint.

This is what things looked like as I was first disassembling the cage. I have a bunch more, but you probably will see the results with these pics.

Older CJ's didn't have these bars and are law compliant, but I'm not too sure about YJ's unless a cage is added.
