For some odd known reason, a new found buddy of mine wants to swap roll bars out-right (his '95 for my '84 CJ-7). My obvious problem is that I don't have the threaded windshield frame to accommodate the front bars. He said it is easy to tap them. Has anyone done this? Is it easy? Any tips?
Take the roll bar before your buddy changes his mind. You can figure out how to tap it later. You could use an item called a plusnut. WeatherGuard ladder racks come with these from the factory and they can be bought at any weatherguard dealer. They work like a molly bolt but are designed for automotive use.
