I love the looks of the netting but one of the things my daughter loves is climbing in the side!!!

I was thinking the same. I actually called up Raingler and they said they'd custom make me a set for the sport bar, but I couldn't find anyone actually showing they stocked them.

I run the smittybilt, and while It isn't as strong as the raingler nets, it does the job for me...
1) keeps stuff from flying out, mainly my brothers.
2) keeps others from thinking the open top means free game to grab what they want... (That one is more of a comfort thing in my mind, but if someone really wanted something in my rig, they'd get it.)
3) doesn't look bad either.

Hey how does that work when your soft top is on?? They both use the same attach point??

I made 2 small cuts in the plastic retainer strip so that it was seperated. Then I only install the front half and the back part hides behind the soft top. That we before I got my Spiderweb shades. I don't run the top like that anymore.

Should be easy to find because I couldn't find one for the family bar.
Searched all those websites and didn't find anything. I think either your or the sellers may be confusing the sport trim level (most wranglers no matter what roll bar they have) with the sport bar. This is the sport bar and is only on 87-91 Wranglers (any trim level):



Have you actually seen a pic of a net that fit these bars?

This is my guess, the only way to get a net for a sport bar would be custom made. OP, probably all of the nets you looked at originally fit the family bar.
