Rear roll cage kit for an 1987 wrangler?

Is there a rear roll cage kit for a 1987 wrangler? We want to put our kids in the rear seat on occasion and use 3 point harness seat belts. All the sport cage kits i've seen include the front bars as well. Would it be better to look for a local welder?

I've never seen a kit that came with a bar behind the back seat but I've also never looked for one since I don't have a back seat .

I think if you were to find a welder and have them put a bar parallel to the body coming from the left rear angle support, wrapping around the back seat, then re attaching to the right rear angle support, then that would suit your needs for the harness's

kinda like a big "C" behind the seat

i have an 89 wrangler yj and wanted to do the same thing. Went on e-bay and found a family roll bar ( it was from a 94 or 92 yj and under 100 dollars). All I had to do was take off the sports bar and the family roll bar mounted right in with very little effort ( I had to move one hole a half an inch over). The family roll bar has the holes for the 3 point seatbelts already in it. I bought some new belts and the kids were set to go. I assume the 87 would be just as easy to mount the family roll bar.

Oh! I thought to get the racing type 3 point harness, like this?




Or a regular 3 point seatbelt like this?

I just used the regular 3 point because it hooked right in. i didn't check out the racing type but the maker of the belts should tell you if they will work.
good luck

Looking to do the same thing to my 91 YJ. I moved the seat back for more leg room which means flipping the jeep is bad news for my back seat passengers. Need a family style roll bar. Checked ebay, but no local pickup were near me. I'll keep looking...
