Safaristrap without tailgate bar

I want to get the safari straps and i have a hard top. Does anyone on this forum use the safari straps with a hardtop, my thing is that the tailgate bar will get on my nerves with opening the tailgate and having half a bar right in my way. Also does anyone have pictures of using the safari straps on a stock jk, not to sure how they would look since all the pictures i see are of jk's with big tires.

You can't use a tailgate bar and the hardtop at the same time. The tailgate bar has a clip on each side that holds the bar,the hard top won't go on with it there. I'm also wondering why you would need the safari straps if your hardtop is on anyway? I have the safari straps they are nice, no picts because my hardtop is on this time of year.It also does not come with the bar you would use the one from a soft top.

For during the summer, how is it you have your safaristrap and hardtop on at the same time then, thats what i want to do but dont understand, do you just fold up the safaristrap and tuck it somewhere?

I ended up taking the whole safari strap out for the winter,except for the rear side window panels. You could leave it on and roll the back section up over the roll bar and tie it up so it doesn't flap around.

Any pictures of it, if you jk's stock. I dont think stock ones will look good with the straps, but i cant find any photos
