The top itself wont hold squat. You need a safari bar setup over the whole top to make it work.

I've considered the same thing, tying it into the front and rear bumpers for vertical support, with maybe a stabilizer support off the windsheild hinge. Here in OHIO some of the trails I ride limit height. I'll try to draw something up. Ron
