    [QUOTE=jnabird333;422368]Test fit done(ish)

    I need to pull the hardtop to finish the upper bars and rear, but it looks good enough for me to trust having it painted. I also need to drill the holes in the door frame, but that shouldn't take long.



    is it just me or is the upper crossbar suppose to go the other way; with the bends facing to the front of the jeep?

    Looks like it should but it doesn't.

    Can this be installed on a 2 door fairly easy? I just wondered if the rear sections would work also lol

    Easy is a relative term, but yes, I've seen it in many 2 drs.
    Pre-fitting before powder coating is the way to go!

    You don't use the rear section with a two door.

    Yes I know but it's not the same and is additional and only works with the factory top.

    I've been meaning to add these... I wasn't able to find anything to give me a warm fuzzy on the cut that is needed on the dash so I thought I would add these to help others.

    I will add that when researching the install, it seems some have been able to install this cage without cutting the dash. In my case, the dash puckered up and new A-pillars didn't fit right without it. I called Rockhard to confirm the cut and they said it was in fact needed yet only offered a verbal description of the needed cut. This really isn't that hard to figure out, but I would've liked this picture when I was test fitting to verify what I thought was needed.

    In this picture you might be able to see the pencl mark (green circle) where I needed to start the cut/notch. Note: I later also ground down the dash support a bit (circled in red) to allow the side to fit more inside the dash.



    Here is the cut from the side, before I cleaned it up with a file.



    Same cut and after a little filing.



    I used a good (new) razor knife. (the kind that has the notches to break off for a sharp tip) I took my time and it worked very well... Anyway I hope this helps someone.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
