Roll Bar

I have a 1987 yj wrangler the roll bar on the back slopes down. Does any one know if a newer roll bar (with the top bars going all the way back like the 1995) will bolt on the same spots or is there alot of cutting, welding, and reinforcing need done. And where is a good place to get one. Im in indiana

They usually bolt right up. When I did mine I had to drill and put bolts in a couple places. Mine was from a Jeep that was being parted out and spit may have been twisted from wreck. A lot of people say they usually bolt right up. Mine is a 1990 & the family bar was out of 1994. Also if your using back seat you may want to find package deal with seat belts.

Just to give you an idea of how much it cost me....paid $100 for bar with no pads, seat belts or the front bars to windshield. I used the front bars off my sport bar & still use the seat belts for back seat that it originally came with. Found mine on Craigslist in another city close by. Already was pulled out of Jeep. The headache was getting the security torch bolts out of the bar connecting to the window. I just took a punch and broke pin out & used a regular torch socket. Good luck 👋

Sorry. Auto correct being a headache. I meant torx, not torch.

I see them on ebay under jeep wrangler yj. Been a few on there. There are a couple of jeep salvage yards on there. May have to contact them and see if they have one. Most are up in the North east. Jeep world will truck ship. Another option is to modify yours to include the family bar back. Gen right sells a kit for the family bars or with 20' of tubing and some time if you have the equipment or a buddy with the equip. Might be cheaper than freight. Good luck
