any rollbar help for us fiberglass owners??

I have been following all these rollbar threads and the fallout over that unfortunate accident. Like alot of others, I have done alot of thinking about my rollover protection.
Currently, my 'glass CJ-7 has only the stock rollbar tied in with the outriggers from http://www.jl4wd.com/outrigger.htm
but I really feel that is way less than adequate. Luckily, my wheeling isn't THAT extreme(I know, rollovers can happen anywhere, anytime)
I have been doing alot of research concerning fiberglass tubs and rollbars, but have drawn a big blank. My biggest concern is trying to mount ANYTHING to the frame through the FG and isolate it without cracking it.
I know alot of people have 'glass tubs. how the heck do you get a decent cage in one and have it not crack the tub, provide adequate protection and look halfway professional?
Can anyone provide any help on this subject? I know there has to be alot of folks in the same boat..

HI BOB.I WOULD USE A HOLE SAW TO CUT HOLE THRU BODY AND GO STRAIGHT TO FRAME. YOU CAN GET DONUT GASKETS TO COVER THE EXCESS HOLE BETWEEN THE GLASS BODY AND ROLL BAR.YOU CAN ALSO USE MARINEGOO-SISTER TO SHOEGOO BUT BETTER ,TO SEAL AROUND ROLLBAR,THEN USE CHROME ESCUTCHEON PLATE,RANGER RICK
