X 10 on the Torx. Those particular bolts (rollbar) were the hardest dang bolts I have ever taken out of anything. I used everything in the arsenal to get them off. Ended up sawzalling the body around the bar feet, and grinding the nuts off. Good thing I was discarding the old body anyway.

I ground flat spots on the torx heads, so that I could get a standard wrench on them. I only had to drill and tap one that snapped off.
four, I never considered the sun visor problem. So, does the YJ bar pretty much make the sun visors useless?
As you can tell, I've been contemplating this swap, as well.
You have to move them in towards the center, new holes. But then both visors hit the windshield mirror bad.
I left mine off while I look around, maybe a smaller visor or none. I hate readjusting mirrors and extra holes.
I'd never use the front support bars from a YJ anyway. There is no strength to them. Just use the rear portion as a base cage and weld on a good front section, then tie all the mounting locations into the frame.
Beat it to fit, paint it to match!
Ok so I finally am getting around to doing this swap. The bad news is where the rear of the bar mounts to the tub is completely rusted out. So my question is do you guys know what part I need to get to fix this. Is it the rear inner wheelhouse liners or is it the panel underneath. The one that goes between the inner part of the tub and the outside?
