    Well I bought a used rollbar from a 1st gen blazer, I thought it would go right in. I was wrong, luckily I like to measure and thing and ponder before I drill holes in the truck (now that I have sealed most of them up!). I realized that the rollbar would interfere with the top going on if the rear supports were placed all the way up against the fenderwells. So I straightened them out with a torch and a hammer and moved it back about 2.75 inches. It worked out great. I have welded the supports to the hoop b/c I really didnt like just having them bolted. I also made a tab and welded it to the center of the hoop. this is where I attach shelby (my dog) so she can run around and hang out but not jump out.

    I will when I complete her box. I am building a box for her to stand on inbetween the two front seats, so that she wont fall out if I roll the truck.
    she goes everywhere I go. Since I own the shop she gets to come to work with me everyday. Its nice having her around

    That rollbar is most likely a Smittybuilt one. The stock ones were welded together, not bolted. Just an FYI.

    Good looking dog.

    It is a smitty built, it was in an older blazer is what I meant. ( full convertable ) so where it lined up didnt interfere with taking the top off and on.
