This made me think of my lil brother. He is 6'9" and has a Jeep also, and he hits his head all the time, poor giant. I swear it looks like his head is higher than the top of the rollbars sometimes.

in the skull vs steel game, steel always wins.

i've already had enough concussions, so after I build up the cage in my jeep, I added more padding to prevent further brain damage....

I just replaced my sport bar overs with the Bestop brand. I really like the new ones. BTW, my old pads were find so I just left them on and replaced the covers.

Same here. I bought some roll bar padding from Jegs. It is specifically designed for this application, and is made of a closed cell foam that doesn't absorb moisture (which is a plus for an open top Jeep). It is very inexpensive, as well--only $4 for each 36-inch piece.

Knowing that steel trumps skull every time, I think you're foolish if you don't use this stuff.
