C Pillar Roll Bar

Looking at the JK Unlimited with the roof off, it seems to me that there should be a C Pillar roll bar just aft of the rear seats like there is with the front seats. I would think it would provide more safety for a rear passenger in a side impact, or rollover, and would look sharper too. There seems to be enough space between the body and seat to fit a roll bar and I would think it could be welded or even bolted (?) to the wheel well arch and then to the top of the roll bar without any other modifications. I haven't read about, or seen, any workup of a JK unlimited with any such change to the rollbar, but I would think it would be easy enough for a fabricator to do. I only have the Freedom Top with the full doors, but I don't think it would cause any intereference with them. Is there something I am missing about why it should not/could not be done? If not, I may be the first to give it a try. Any thoughts, pro or con?

I see your point. My first thought would be the concern for increased risk of head injury to the rear seat occupants. It appears as though it would need to be rearward and more towards the downward bend to keep it away from this issue.
I would also think the main bar would provide adequate roll over protection as is.
I agree the benefit for side impact protection is a point.
