Re: Stoopid to switch rollbar?
Hey if your not using the backseat for kids, then its not really a stupid idea. If you like the look of the older bars, then go for it, as far as I know, other than the added rear passenger protection, and added shoulder harness, there is no additional inheirant strength in the newer bars.
Now, lets move on, to the more important question, you should be asking, "should the addition, of reinforcement, and a front hoop(to whichever stock bar you may choose), be the most important modification, on my list?". Why, Yes James, the addition of a full roll cage should be even more important than a neat swept back soft top.
Who cares which style you choose as long as it can help save your life in a rollover. I would not, begin a build up without the cage being somewhere at top of the list, to be completed before my 1st day of hard wheelin. I wouldnt let one of my daughters, even own a Jeep untill I installed a front hoop, and needed reinforcement. Its not a very expensive project.
