    Wanted a rear (next to tailgate) roll bar for 73-91 blazer. It was a factory option a few years, so that would be best, but I may be interested in a custom fab as well. Looking to make a simple cage for the rear areas with the roll-bar behind the front seats.

    I've got a '73 one. You know the rear floor changed in '78 right? 78+ floor has a deeper well for rear seat passengers feet than the '73-77.
    Don't know how I'd ship it though.

    I do know, thank you. I just found out the difference; mine is an 1988. Therefore, I am looking for a rollcage for the 78-91 models.

    I also am not sure how shipping would work...what is the size? Pictures?

    I don't have any pics. I'm out-of-town won't be back until tommorow night as well.
    Size, well, umm...picture a main hoop bolted to the fllor just behind the rear seats, with 2 main supports on each side spurting back to the wheel well. So mabey what...3/3.5' high, width of interior (5'?), and 4' deep mabey. Very awkward to ship. I there's some trucking companies that do it.

    That's the front roll bar. He wants the rear roll bar that was a factory available option for a few years. :)

    I am lost, sorry. You have the rear bar back by the tailgate? But you have welded it to the middle bar behind the seats, correct? Any pictures?

    Yes I have the factory rear roll bar from a 80's something K5. I will get some pics tonight if I have time . What I did was added two bars going forward and made a hoop with two kickers behind the front seats, I have all the backing plates for it also

    Any idea of the size or weight for shipping? I am just thinking about what it would take to ship. Thanks
