what cool things did you do to your rollbar

Don't know why but I like little odds and ends that go on your rollbar like cup holders and stuff can't ever have to many cup holders in my opinion, so did anybody do anything unique to yours

I have my shovel and my first aid kit attached to mine. I bought one of those neoprene fire extinguisher holders, but I still need to get the extinguisher.

Does the hi lift on your hood obstruct your view? Can you put your hood all the way back till its resting on the top or does it hit the glass?

it doesn't obstruct my view at all, its there and you can see it but it doesnt get in the way, I havn't rested my hood on the glass I always use the hood prop and it doesn't touch at all

i have the highlit on my hood too. no obstructed view, even when i add the shovel and axe on top of the jack. the hood resting on the windshield frame depends on how you position the jack. if the tongue is facing in toward the windshield the hood will rest on the tongue. if the tongue is facing out toward the grille, i think it will rest on the windshield. i have mine facing in so it rests on the tongue.

as for rollbar accessories i have several rollbar handles, flashlight holder & cellphone holder.

My roll bars are currently sporting a Tuffy overhead console, fire extinguisher, maglite, 4 grab handles, and an OD green canteen in an insulated pouch.

Maybe someday my Hi-lift will make it to the back rollbars like Nico's

I like that too, but I need a newer rollbar with the full cage. I want to get one anyway, but that is just another reason why. Coyote...how do you have your maglite mounted?

Measure the diameter of your rollbar with and without the padding. And PM me the measurements.

Maybe you'll get another present in the mail.

I also had my highlift mounted to the rear bars.....




I've removed it and mounted it to the top of a box I built for the rear tub now.

Coolest thing I've done to my cage in a long time is to dismantle the interior of a buddies rig because he's trashing the tub and I'm taking the cage to go into mine. It's time I have the seats in the cage and much more love on it to keep my big ass safer.

Have you always cherished your life... or just more so since Joe landed on his back like a turtle?

Just kidding, but seriously, you have needed a good cage for some time.

Nah, the gainers that Joe and Paige did over the weekend didn't have anything to do with it. However I know if that would've been me I probably wouldn't have been hurt, but it would've destroyed the open windshield frame and stock cage. I've been pushing my luck and have only had a few soft flops and the like, but yeah it's time to get some better tube in there.

Let's see, I have my external CB speaker mounted to the rollbar over the drivers head. 4 mastercraft grab handles, a "AA" mag light, and my fire extingusher also are attached to the rollbar. I had my hi-lift mounted to the back of the bar, just above the seatbelt mounts, but now it's on the tire carrier. I'm looking to buy a Rockhard sport cage set-up for it in the near future.
