Roll Bar
#1
I have everything on the equipment list except a roll bar. Two questions:

1. Considering that my truck is my only form of transportation and I don't anticipate putting myself in the position of walking to work everyday, can I get away without having one?

2. Where the heck do you get one around here? I've been looking around online and it seems that Toy Tacos aren't the easiest to find pre-manufactured ones for. I'm not opposed to fab'ing one up, but I don't have access to a welder or cutter anymore. Suggestions?

As long as you have a steel roof (factory non soft top) you are good.

We just want to be weary of the Willy's jeeps that when rolled flatten anything higher than the hood.

That makes sense. Although I think I'd still like to get one... I've seen what lies beneath the sheet metal and it's not very comforting.

ChevyKev and 78Calico are vendors on this site with benders and the ability to make it happen.

I would go with Ole (78Calico) as I know Kev is seriously busy right now. Watch Kev slap me for this later.

Both do very good work, and prices are good especially when you compare with shipping costs.

Nice, now I just need to quit working through my weekends and get out on a ride!

At least you have something to take out on a trail.

I gotta build my next rig first.

Most of us don't plan on rolling over ether, but it happens. Big Grin

Good point... I'll be keeping my fingers crossed.
