    where can i get a roll bar for my 91 blazer that will fit my 91 jimmy? i want one that is chrome and will looks like the stock 73-75 style but in chrome and fit under my top. i plan on mounting some flip up off road lights on it for when the top is off.
    i like this style.

    thanks for the pic to dontoe!

    This one was a P/U roll bar that was cut near the bottom and then welded back!

    dontoe, is this an origional convertible blazer or is it a chop top? i want to convert my 83 K5 to a full convertible but i know that i need to beef up the body and frame to keep it from flexing when i chop the roof. just wondering if this sort of roll bar would give it enough beef...

    It's a '73, original full ragtop yes.

    It's factory boxed under the body, lots of previous posts about reinforcing the body when ya cut the top.

    This roll bar doesn't connect to the frame, but it's better than nothing, and it's shiny!!!

    I cut mine down do it could fit under the top when I had it on. It came out of a 79 ford shorbed it mounts to the fender wells aswell. I cut aproxamatly 2-3 inches off of the bottom of the bar and welded the pads back on. You can see it inside my top in the second picture. I was going to do a Flip up light thing on it to at that time. Now I'm not worried about it any more. It lives inside and I am going to have a bakini top made out of my old rag top for it.
