    Found a guy here at Fort Hood that'll bend me a rollcage if I send him the interior measurements.. He is going to make me one that goes from inside the cab to behind the wheel-wells..
    Any help would be greatly appreciated..

    Hey rocko, how much is the guy going to charge you to make the roll bar? I just bought a smiitybilt roll bar for my 89 blazer for $139.00. I doubt that he can supply the materials and make it for less than that. I have not installed mine yet so if you need specs from it I would be glad to get them for you when I have a chance.

    If you want I can go measure my roll cage in the morning. The front bars come down right in front of the back seat ashtrays and up top has a squared section over the back seat then comes down behind the fender wells.

    Thanks Guys..
    He's making me the rollbar for practically nothing.. and he builds them for Stockcars.. so I'm sure it'll turnout great..
    Any measurements would be helpfull.

    Hey Den, I bought my bar from 4wpw warehouse. It is a part # S/B BL478. The bar is a roll bar which goes side to side behind your head and then has rearward bars to just behind the wheel wells. The bar came with all mounting hardware and it is painted black. I am looking at the receipt right now and I paid $139.27 including tax. If you can't find it that cheap then I guess I am getting a HELL of a deal then on my stuff. I just also bought 4.56 gears, detroit lockers, 14bff case, master install kits for both axles and it only cost me $1303.00 out the door. That was for a D44/14BFF.
