        Be careful what you buy- some of them place the bar right behind your head- such that you will whack it with your noggin in an accident or harsh road conditions.

          Not sure where you're located, but I have a Military roll bar with seat belt mounting points and extra support tubes to the tub. Fits under a soft top no problem, replaces the front hoop. I'm in Oregon.

            Unfortunately it's a hard top & I'm in Maryland. Appreciate the response though.

              Why not put in the hard top bits? Planning on roof removal in the Summers?

                Rovers North sells this one: https://www.roversnorth.com/parts/ex...efender_series

                I had a friend put one in a lightweight and they liked it. Unsure if it will clear a hard top though, sorry.

                  This is the exact reason that I went with the Purely Metal supports. They feel very solid and minimalist, which I like. But you will have to drill through the galvanized trim to mount them, but a small price to pay for seat belts and I think you would have to drill the other bar as well. I ordered mine in galvanized, and got them pretty quick.

                  (Cost $306 with shipping, but that was almost 2yrs ago.)

                  I'm also intrigued by their double action tailgate hinges and may put a set on the 61.
