Snowtow, you are exactly right. And this complication is why I went with the Rock Hard 4x4 front cage. They get around having to cut holes in the half hard top by adding another hoop inside the half cab. Then the added on hoop is secured to the original main roll bar via the same way that the shoulder seat belts are secured. It is really slick. You can probably tell better by just looking at some pics, so here you go.
Here is how the cowl mount comes into play. Notice the tube that runs next to the kick panel, that is what connects the cowl connection to the floor.
Pretty slick setup, if I say so myself.
