Started work on the roll bar today. Do you guys think the horizontal bar is sitting too high? I wanted to get some opinions before cutting it down lower. Also doing miter cuts to keep everything tight, felt like doing bends would take up too much room.

I think it would look better if it was a little lower, but you're probably almost done by now...

Yeah after thinking about it I decided to keep it where it was to serve as a place to rest stuff like my canoe and shit on. you know function over form or whatever.

I dig it. It has more of a "headache rack" functionality if kept higher. You can take lumber home from the hardware store, stand in the bed and rest guns on it and shoot over the cab, or handcuff bro-hoes to it. Post some finished pics!

Hahaha bro-hoes definitely being the priority. It is almost done but I ran out of tubing and am away from home for the weekend. Hopefully will have it all done and painted by Tuesday.

You're adding braces from the top of the b-pillar down to the top of the shock mount, right?
