    Are there any companys that make roll bars for Blazers that attach to the frame? If so how much are they and where can I get one? Are they hard to install? I was looking at the Smittybilt roll bar but it looks like it bolts to the body not the frame.

    I have no clue if you are interested in a roll cage since you are talking about a roll bar? But I found this link last night because someone from here posted it. This site has roll cages and they are great prices. I plan on ordering one when I can afford it! I thought I would share it because I figure maybe you might want to check them out?

    Most pre-built cages and bars just bolt to the floor. Attaching it to the frame would be a custom job. Most fabrication shops can make outriggers that attach the floor mounting plates to the frame, but it'll cost you. Learn how to weld and save some money.

    hey stephanie, did you talk to anyone at that place? or are you just looking at the prices? be sure to check how much shipping will be, they're in pennsylvania.
    keep us posted, i'm definitely looking for a roll bar for the back, then a cage.

    Someone on this board bought one of the S&W cages. The post is somewhat recent. They are getting it put in now and tied into the frame..
