make sure its tied to the frame and from the vert bar at your left leg to the section behind your seat along the floorboard.


If @ 1st you don't succeed, grind it, hammer it, weld it, drink a beer and try again.

The B pillar needs a cross brace. Something like an X behind the seats. I'm also not crazy about the a-pillar, it could use an additional brace down low, don't want it folding on your legs.

The cross bar behind the seats is a knee buster. Additionally it's too low for connecting your shoulder harnesses for the front seats.
A cross bar is a PIA if you have kids but the added strength is good for lateral support. The cross bar across the back should be placed so that you can attach shoulder harnesses back there too.
Mine has the cross bar in the rear, then two diagonal bars meeting in the center so I could mount their five points and Rhino headrests on them for the kids to prevent whiplash. I'll try and find a pic.
The price seems "fair" for the material they are using as long as it has the frame tie ins.

Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!

Hang on! This is gunna' be a thrill ride of geriatric proportion!

You guys hit the nail on the head. I forgot to mention I was getting rid of the cross bar behind the seats for the time being since I don't have 5 point harnesses and it sees daily driving. When the time comes ill either get a bolt in one so its removable or just have somone burn one in. I understand the concern of the rear spreader but ill likely never have anyone in the backseat and its likely coming out soon. As far as the bar from the lower A pillar to B pillar Im still debating how I want it done. I was thinking off having it have a slight swoop from the ground at the A pillar and around a foot up the B pillar. Im pretty sure the price includes the frame tie ins and I think I could talk him down some. Any other concerns? The only thing I'm going to have to pass on is the V in the middle of the windshield. It may come at a later time but its not strictly a trail rig yet.

For some extra cash, you could have a b-pillar spreader and an a pillar brace removeable with tube clamps. So when it's on the street you can have them off and when you go on a trail run you can just bolt them on.

There is a cross member right at the top of the dash. I don't know how you could put one lower and it'll have something from A to B pillar along the ground.

who would LOVE to help me reweld my ebrake bracket together? Simple job really. Straight line weld and maybe a small brace for it as well. I cut it in 1/2 yrs ago and welded an extension on it to fit longer cables. Well, the welds sucked monkey testicles or it was just to much leverage on the thin bracket but it bent. I need to put it back to oem. I got a 6 pack of beer/soda or a fast food lunch with your name on it.......

If @ 1st you don't succeed, grind it, hammer it, weld it, drink a beer and try again.
