Replacing old OEM lap-seatbelts


I have decided that this year I should really do something about my seat-belts. All I have are the original, old, single lap belt. I use my jeep 95% off road (with no doors on), and I do not feel that in the event of a rollover or crash, that the lap belts will do much good.

I still have the original jeep seats with a low back, though I do plan on getting some high backed seats soon.

I am trying to decide between a regular retractable shoulder/lap belt, or a 3 point harness like this one:

The reason I was thinking about the 3 point, is because I feel it will do a better job at keeping us in the jeep in the even something bad happens. The last thing I want to happen is for my lady to get hurt jeeping.

I have seen that people have to get a special harness bar behind the seat, or new seats or something of that fashion to hook the belts to. My problem is that I use the back seat alllll the time, so having something like this would not work well for me.

So my question is; what would be the effect of just taking and mounting the 3rd point belt directly to the roll bar behind the seat. I KNOW that the instructions say that that would be too much of an angle, but let me stress, I am not racing this jeep. It wont go over 35 if I wanted it to. And.....

....The way I look at it, the regular everyday 1 shoulder belt that I could get mounts just about at the top of the roll bar anyway, and those seem to work, so why cant I take and have the 2 shoulder harnesses go a little higher to the roll bar and call it good?

Fill me it please! Thanks!
