    A local 4Wheelparts employee told me this. I emailed the company about it, but haven't gotten a reply back yet.

    You can go to www.4wheelparts.com and order one still, but I don't want to if they are no longer made.

    I have also heard the same. I think they were bought out by Lund or someone else. Some aftermarket retailers still have product so they will still sell them as Smitybuilt.

    I ordered a rollbar 3-4 months ago through
    4WP...it shipped on Friday. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif I think you can still get them, but be prepared to wait. I was the third out of seven in line for one, and it still took many-a-moon. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    When I talked to 4WPW they said SB only builds a few sets of these ONCE-A-YEAR! /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I ordered directly from SmittyBilt a few years ago, that's the same exact thing they told me. They only run these kits basically on demand, they wait for a few orders to pile up, then make a few more than that, usally only 1-2 times a year...

    S&W Race Cars makes a cage kit. Some folks run it from here. You should be able to get them for about $300 shipped (give or take $25) for a 10 point cage.... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
     
  10. Do you have any pics I am buying materials today and going to weld one up. Mother of necessity /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Here's a link to their webpage... http://www.swracecars.com/

    If you do a search for S&W you should find who has done them and more info. I can't recall off the top of my head who installed them, sorry!

    I know this thread is old as hell, but does anyone have a line on a simple 4 point roll bar? I don't really want an entire cage but I think the bar would round out the look and offer a little bit more protection.
