Here's my $.02 worth.

I would (did) find a roll bar from a 92-95 YJ. Install the rear section only. Don't worry with the front spreader bars to the windshield. Offers no real protection.

Then order a front cage from http://www.swracecars.com/shopping.asp this is the page with the kit http://www.swracecars.com/pdf/CATpg18.PDF and have someone weld it up for you. That is where I'm at now. Installed the rear section, (you'll have to drill holes because you have the "A" style like me, but it's not a problem) and the front cage will be here Wednesday provided Katrina doesn't interefer with shipping here to LA.

It will be worth the extra hassle to get it done over bolt in. I watched a Jeep roll over last Sunday with a bolt in cage and althought the cage held it's own and protected the passengers, had it been a harder surface it may have been a different outcome.

Here's some pictures of the TJ that rolled Sunday. The bolt-in bar held, but as I mentioned, if was not a hard surface he roll in. Light mud. Note the tub in the last couple of photos. Had this not bolted into the tub, but extended to the floor, he would not have totaled the tub.
