your harness bar ??

I'm making my own bar, and i'm kinda split on where to mount it. To put it at the 15 degree shoulder angle the bar is nearly 10 inches above the rail of the bed. But the picture of the one the vendor sells on here shows it maybe 3 inches off the box. So wheres yours at? I'm running stock seats so maybe that bar is for aftermarket only?

I used 1 inch schedule 40 and welded it to the angled bar in the middle and made a bracket to bolt to the bolts for the roll cage. It worked real good.

I welded mine between the roll cage and the 1 inch bars in the back, they are about 10 inches above the bed. I atached a pic so you can see what i did.

suggest you go look at Simpson or one of the high end harness mfg's .. they have mount instruction do N don't and tell how high or low [below the seat openings] they need to be mounted... mounted to high they don't do the correct job and can be more dangerous to you.

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

Bob did you use gas pipe? sch40. if so get rid of it when you lower your cage. it is high in carbon and will crack in a bad wreck.

cat n hat, No i didn't use gas. I bought cold rolled schedule 40. You are right the pipe they use in gas line is too hard and will crack. Thanks for the advice though. Got your im and looking forward to talking to you.
