Have a question is there a good kit out there that you can buy to make a full rollbar cage so i can compete in some competitions in some 4 wheel jamboree shows.. let me know also is there any welding or just bolting..
also a concern i am a tall/big guy i am cramped in the drivers seat already with the extra bar buy your left leg do you think there will be room and not a nut crunching experience

I built one using my original roll bar as the front hoop and a 94 Roll bar in place of the original. Im nnot sure how well the newer YJ Roll bars will fit into a CJ at the mounting plates, but Im sure some modifications could be made. The original Roll bar is then cut at the mounting plates and new plates are easily welded for mounting up front(experiment for best fit with length and angle of the new mounting plate. Then the spreaders can be welded in using 2" Round/120 wall/ cold formed steel. You can find the steel at any Salvage steel yard(about $25 for a 20' stick). I then welded 1/4" steel on top, between the 2 inner spreader bars for extra strength, then took advantage of the space to build an overhead console using (3) 12" x 12" Aluminum squares(for access to the electrical system) bolted into threaded holes in the spreader Bars. The original spreaders were kept in place and are used to keep the windshiels in place for the soft top, but they are removed for the summer so the window can be dropped using 2 bolts at the dash. The whole thing not counting the electrical system cost me less than $200. see attachment.
