Anyone have EssentiallyOffroad or MORE YJ rollbar?

I am going to put a front hoop kit in with 4 spreaders and can't decide between these two kits. Does anyone have anything good or bad to say about either? I kind of like the Essentially kit better because the vertical bars are bent to better fit along the windshield and dash. But can you unscrew the windshield brackets with this installed.
How about welding vs bolting to the original back hoop? If I weld it in I have to take the whole cage out as one piece if I ever want to do any serious dash work. And those original rear rollbar bolts have torx heads and will probably never come out.

Re: Anyone have EssentiallyOffroad or MORE YJ rollbar?

I have the MORE YJ front hoop (88 YJ tub) but I also have a CJ dash. This hoop fitted real nice until I put my hardtop on last fall. The hoop kept the windshield (CJ) from comming back far enough to get the doors to seal. I removed the hoop at that time but I later found out that I had a bent frame which has now been straightened. Once it warms up I will reinstall the hoop and see if it still interfears.

The basic hoop is a straight bolt in with no problems. I took out the torx head bolt from my 92 sports bar and replaced them with grade 8 bolts so I qould remove the bars at any time.
