Default Question on Roll-Bar location...

I am adding a dash cross bar to our 10 point cage, plus adding bars thru firewall to shock towers. Can the bars going thru the firewall to the Shock towers be mounted to the dash cross bar or do they have to attach to the A-piller bar coming down from hoop to the floor plate? Thanks, Ron

Is your dash bar going in behind the dash or in front of it?

Why not? J-Bars aren't technically in any cert so...they work just fine off the dashbar assuming the dashbar was done correctly.

True, I will asume that I can make the J-bar from the Strut tower to the dash bar out of whatever size tube I want? It does not have to be 1 5/8 like the cage.

No, it can be a smaller OD bar. That said, keep in mind that strength is in the bar's OD.
