Need some extra protection and needed to know if these weld in sport bars, such as from smittybilt, would be sufficient in a roll over. It is for a 81 CJ5 and they come with a front hoop and spanners that weld to the original equipment rollbar. It is either that or have someone bend some stronger tubing for me and then weld that in. The "kit" is affordable but if it is just for looks, forget it.

Re: rollbar

They are called sport bars for liability reasons. They are excellent for slow speed rollover protection if they are tied to the frame. They even work to some extent when not tied to the frame.
