She would probably have issues with it. All the guys I know who have short wifes have a real hard time seeing over them. Heck I am 5' 11" and I can't even see 95% of my hood because of mine

Yes, Rock Hard, looks awesome and does function. I've seen a post on another site where a guy rolled his JK with it and it did the job.

It's not an issue my wife is 5'2 also, the bar sits directly on the dash almost flush. Many guys mount cb's on the dash which obstructs WAY more view than the bar does. I'm going to mount my Bearcat on the top middle bar.

It is one piece, you'd have to unbolt up top near top of windshield, undo clasp of bar across dash, and undo from side of dash. It would be a pain in the butt, but doable if you had to.

I guess I will tell the 2 ladies I know that have been fussing about them the last few years to stop complaining then.

Rock Hard Cage!


Just put the hard top on after the rock hard cage was installed, major wind noise? Ended up having to use my dremel to grind the inside of the hardtop where the upper crossbar clamps meet on the side bars of the stock roll cage bars, this gives enough clearance to seal the leak. The screw closest to the windshield on each side is where the problem is.

Corolla? I will be there the end of September! Can someone get me a napkin because I am drooling on my keyboard! I wanted that color combo but I could not find it and settled for a left over MW3 that I purchased a month ago.
