/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif It was entertaining as well as enlightening to read the flurry of posts on welding a rollcage in a Jeep, and rather than add yet one more to the group, I would offer the following comments: FIRST...taking your Jeep somewhere other than your own garage to have work done is NO guarantee of getting a good, right, or SAFE job done. SECOND...you CAN save a lot of money if you do like Doug97TJ mentioned and get some of the minor, but pesky ****** LABOR out of the way prior to getting the hot-shot specialist involved. Carpeting, storage boxes, interior fittings of any sort are going to be a problem, AS IS the hardtop, DEAL WITH THEM YOURSELF. THIRD...don't make the mistake of thinking that just because someone lives in a single-wide and has marginal dental hygiene that he doesn't have the skills. I'll never forget walking into a very small, ramshackle garage on the edge of town and being surprised at seeing an ALLISON transmission all spread out on the bench, being worked on by a barely-post-high-school kid, who just happened to be a self-taught, gifted, automatic transmission man. None of the other shops in town would touch the Allison. Skill and talent is where you find it, and you need to remember that. FOURTH...ask questions. TALK to people, and find out who does what and how good he is, and how much he charges. Have some idea of what you want so your specialist doesn't have to spend all his time designing. One of the best arrangements is if you can involve YOURSELF 75% and an outside specialist 25%. You will both end up doing a better job./wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

Well guys! Thankyou for all the replys. I think I will take it a local welding shop and see what they can do with it. My main reason
for installing it is because I have a fiberglass body, and my little boy likes to ride in as well.
