Re: CJ-5 Roll Bar...

Some people think that mounting to the body is good enought. Using different size mounting plates, top and bottom, sandwiching the body is a good idea. The different size plates keep the body from flexing up and down in the same spot at the plates.
I prefer mounting to the frame using outriggers. Somebody sells an outrigger kit for this, but don't remember who, I made my own. Be sure to use a bushing between the outrigger and the cage/body so the body can still flex on the frame.
