Or-fab sport bar cage

Anyone used the OR-Fab weld in sport bar that bolts to the dash?

Thanks

I have one in my TJ that's bolted & welded with the floor tie in kit sandwiched through the floor to the rock sliders & frame. I added some extra bars and gussets to it, then installed the pad kit they sell so most people don't even notice it cause it looks like the Jeep came with it from factory. I installed it 8 years ago and thought about installing one in my CJ but haven't done anything yet since I fab most of my own stuff these days. RangerRick

I have the bar in my CJ and i am happy with it. I feel it give some added protection, though not as much as a fully attached roll cage, without having to sacrifice leg room.

It was pretty easy to install with only some simple welds on the main bar and a few bolts in the dash. I did modify the install to include a metal plate behind the dash to add additional support to the dash attachement in the event of a roll over.

Do you have more pics of the dash attachment? I'm thinking of building my own. The tub is off right now and I'm thinking about putting in some type of tie-in from the dash to the floor. I've looked at their website, and can't quite figure out how they did it.

Old thread but what did you use to make up your roll bar padding on the front Or-Fab kit?

It only hurts while you're breathing..
