i have a XJ that has the back cut off

The back of my jeep has been hacked off. I love it but I would like to put a rack and a soft top on it. Along with a half exo. Can anyone direct me to some good pictures so I can get some ideas going?

I hope someone caged the inside before or during that ? Structural integrity is lost when hacking a unibody. I'd say google will provide all the pics you could desire.

Ya I Google imaged some :-) I just was wondering if someone on here would have better pics. There is bars on the back and a bar in the center ( for now) I want to do a half exo on the out side and then do some sort of a roll bar X on the inside

I would run a b pillar hoop for the eventual harness mounting and go from there out and back down the rear. I'm doing an exo(minus the cut rear ) in the future and plan to tie into the frame, sliders, and have cross bars going from frame up through floor for seat mounting. More the better with the unibody, keep it reasonable though. 1.5-1.75/.120 dom should be fine.

Okay. I'll keep that in mind. Thanks. I just don't want to add to much to make it overly heavy.
