Side To Side Overhead Console As Part Of The Cage

I think the tittle says it all.I'm keeping my tj for a couple of years more(before i go for a 4dr jk-family-).So i have to make something(you know).
My question is what size of rect tube equals the round one for the cage.
My idea is to use rect for the side to side upper and tubular for the rest.
The side to side overhead console will be drilled easily on the rect.
Thanks in advance....

i'm confused...

you want to make an overhead console - ok got that.

which way? front to rear or left to right?

Are you wanting to make something like the tuffy overhead console?

The factory tubing of the windshield bars is almost 1.75" (IIRC - 1.6825" - 42-43.5mm) the factory B-pillar is 2.25" IIRC..

Sorry for the delay but i'm on the other side of the planet.(day-night).
I'd like to built a cage using the factory bars as a base.A tube will connect the windshield bar(close to the windshield) with the floor(each side)and then to the chassis.A rect tube will connect the two windshield bars(left to right,right in front of the sunvisors).What size this rect tube should be(being part of the cage)?
Then i'll make a tuffy kind overhead console(right to left) to bolt on to the rect tube.
