I have the chance to pick up a sport bar from a later model YJ ('91+) w/the rear seatbelts. I am just wondering if it is worth the trouble of fight the torx bolts to put in my CJ-7. I want to eventually build a full cage, so question is, are these factory sport bars a good foundation for a full cage? TIA.

Yeah they are a good foundation. Go for it.. just add on a front cage mount

It can't be done? HA, they MUST be crazy...

If you don't have to fight the torx to get the bar, bolt it into yours with regular hex bolts. I put a YJ bar in mine that way.

Yeah, I definitely will NOT use those Godforsaken torx bolts again. I am gettin the bar from a wrecking yard for $50. That is if I pull it myself. If I have them do it they'll want $100. I started on it last week and only got thru 3 bolts before I busted my impact torx socket. I had another cheepie socket but it started to bend before it even got put on the ratchet. It also did not help that I ran out of PB Blaster the day before. I am having a bear of a time finding another T45 bit that even looks like it'll get thru even one bolt. Anyway, I'll let ya'll know when/if I get it out. Thanks,
