    Where can I get a roll bar for my 1970 Blazer. Any ideas? Or, do I need to fabricate one?

    Fabrication is the way to go. I got mine out of a race car.
    I just had it changed and the bars extended and new plates welded on.
    If you have a race track near you. I would check with the drivers there. Good luck.

    Stevie,

    Please fill out your profile a little more (like where do you live?) /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif I might be able to help you find one, but only if you're close by....

    I have the factory roll bar in my 72. it look alright, but in an actuall roll-over, I dont know how well it would hold up, its basically a 4 point roll bar, but the back 2 points are only like a 1-1/2 feet behind the front points. I have seen fabbed ones, and I think they would perform better (in the case that you actually need it)

    Don't forget that S&W Race Cars makes a full cage for about $200-$300. Read it here, must be true! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
