Great work.

What kind of bender did you use?

I have a custom roll cage in my CJ5 and it is a PITA getting my big size 13's in/out with boots on and the roll bar.

The dash plate would allow more room for my feet in the CJ5, not as much of a concern in the CJ7.
I flipped (not as in rolled / flipped but as in bought fixed sold) one a long while back that had the bars to the floor.

The bar was where I was use to resting my foot and it also made it a little difficult to get the foot on the ebrake quickly.

I have the full blown Genright cage and love it. I think you would be happy with the stanchions. You will have to mod the grab bar to keep it and slightly bend the e brake handle. I had the yj family bar prior to adding the cage and the only draw back is the factory cj windshield will crack over time . You could probable double up and weld a plate where the spreader bars attach to the windshield. I also like the look of the Bimini top plus it doesn't dump water in the rear seat good luck

I borrowed a buddies Hossfeld hydraulic bender. It was overkill but he has every die you can imagine. He said I could borrow it for a month, when I was done he said to keep until he called me. It is still here. Nice piece of equipment.
