I used the TJ rear tubes and welded them to my YJ sport cage. I just carefully cut them off of a TJ cage I got for free. Then I welded some DOM tube over top between them. I plan to add a lot more to it here soon in the near future.
I have a couple more pics in my build thread on it also.

A concern I would have with the add on stuff is if you want to use a frameless top, is the add on stuff dimensioned exactly like the OEM? You may have issues with the top sagging or otherwise not fitting properly. I would beef up what you got and not worry about frameless or hold out for an OEM family bar.
