    i want to install a roll cage in my truck, now this k5 is not a major off roader. i use it for school and daily driving. i just want the bar that goes right behind your head, and goes to the rear seat at an angle and then down. just like the ones the 69-72 blazers had. does anyone make them for the 80's style? and does anyone have a price estament? thanks for the help

    You could prolly just get one for the 70's truck and shorten the tubes a little if nothing else pops up.

    I just cut one out of my truck today (going full cage soon I hope). It is the factory one out of a '75 and has the seat belt bar added (easily removed for easier rear seat access if you want) and some additional support that welded to the rear fenders.

    I am in OKC so PM me and we can talk if you wish.

    You click on your name/handle in the top left corner of your post/thread and this produces a pull-down menu where you can choose to send a private message.
