Help with roll bar!!

I need help deciding what I'm going to do with my roll bar. The front feet are basically rusted out, and I was planning on cutting them off and replacing them. But the rust is worse than I thought and goes a little way up the tube.





I haven't had any luck locating a bar out of the junk yard. They are either smashed or its a fender mounted bar. Not looking to build a custom cage, not yet at least, I want to focus on getting the Jeep back together.

Can I replace the lower section of the bar, maybe using an inner sleeve? If so any ideas on how I could form the bend above the feet.

Any ideas at all, I'm all ears.

I would find a Wrangler bar and replace it. I have a pretty good CJ roll bar but shipping would kill you. I am going to be in Silverton first week of August if you can wait that long and want to drive out there.

Good call, just posted an ad on Craigslist.

Reno, the CJ5 roll bar is different from the 7 and the wrangler. I'm sure they can be modified to fit, but then I might as well just fix what I have.

If nothing pops up on craigslist fairly quick, I'm going to try and get a piece of tube off a junkyard bar and use that to repair mine.
