honestly...most people have not been able to give them away...if u had a buyer locally it might be worth something...but i have had 2 and the last i finally put by the side of the road with a "free" sign. just to get it out of the shop

Roll Bar

I welded a Lock rack onto mine to mount the highlift jack, we were trading some stuff around and I saw the roll bar.

I don't really like the lock rack as Jack still rattles and going to redo it.

He was wanting $300 for it so I passed.

I've been buying & selling them from $50 to $75. I bought about every one I've come across, and it seems I never have but 1 or 2 around. Someone is always needing one.

x2 I have sold a couple for under $40, but usually $50-75 is reasonable.

If I can't find nice something else this guy needs to trade then maybe could get someone to bring roll bar to Nationals.

One thing I really liked was the mounting plates (feet ) were angled up with slotted holes where U could tie something in bed.

Yea I need to get me a replacement, a real nice straight one.
Not afraid to drop the cash on it.

Really like the mounting plate with slotted holes for tying stuff in bed, so that's the one I'll be looking for.

Too bad you're not closer...I have one like that. Shipping would be ridiculous, though.

I'll set one aside for you and bring it to Hot Springs if you want.

Definately want it if real nice, no dings or pitted rust?

Got the slotted holes in mounting feet?


That will give me incentive to make it to National's.
Been wanting to go anyway and Hot Springs is close enough and wife would find stuff to do in town.

I checked the roll bars today and both spares are from 1981 or early 82 with no shoulder harness mounts. Sorry, but glad went out to check them.

Where in Texas are you?

You can cut that rack lock rack off and grind everything smooth. My '82 roll bar had holes for wood side rails, and no shoulder mounts. I welded the holes shut, and added threaded bosses for the shoulder belts. You would never be able to tell it didn't come that way.

Tom,
I need to install something like threaded bosses in my roll bar to mount the wood side rails. The roll bar has been professionally painted, and really don't want to weld. Would there be another solution similar to the threaded boss concept that does not require welding? Thanks

The wooden side rails were held on originally with lag screws. All you need to do is drill a hole. If you would like to use a machined bolt, then you could drill holes and then install a rivnut.

Here is a description of rivnuts: http://www.cardinalcomponents.com/fasteners/Rivnuts.pdf.pdf

You can buy them at a local bolt supplier.

Excellent! Thank you for your time Tom. We have a Fastenal store in town and I will check their first.
