Looking for a Family Roll Bar for my YJ.
 
Anyone have any ideas where I could find one that I know will fit. I'd rather buy from someone who knows what they're talking about instead of buying it straight up off Ebay and knowing hardly anything about it.

all you have to know is what year it is from and who has the cheapest price plus shipping.

I have an 87 YJ with a family cage fron a 95. All the holes line up just fine. Any YJ cage will work for sure, not sure about TJ cages.

I also have a 87 with a 95 YJ family bar. It was hard to track down because all of us 87-91 owners want a easy bolt in replacement. I'd search Craigslist, eBay and any other classifieds I could find....find one call and it would be sold. Finally I was able to land one. Another option is jeeptubes.com, they sell pre bent tubing to make your existing bar have family protection. Fairy priced and all you have to do is weld it up. Or if welding isn't your strong suit I'm sure a shop could do it for a small fee.

Buy a real cage. Dont trust your family to a "family rollbar"

^ agree. The factory cage is junk. The rear tubes are bolted thru single lair sheetmetal.

Real dom 6 point cage with frame tie ins is the way to go if you really want to be safe.

A local fab shop builds cages at 125 per point. He adds for extras but a good 6 point cage for under 900.... Worth every penny.
