4 seat Rear Roll Bar Idea, need help

Well I know most of us don't like the rectangle cage the prowlers have, but I don't mind it. I want find/buy another middle section of roll cage (the thick one behind the seats) and use that as the roll cage for the rear. It would look symmetrical and would damn sure be cheaper than buying a whole new 4 seat cage. Not sure where I would attach it, but I guess somewhere inside the very back edge of the bed. Whaddya think has anyone ever done this? Also where would I go about buying just that middle stock roll-cage bar? New or used doesn't matter. Also I could use the front cage bar as well.

Any ideas, help?

I saw a picture a long time ago where someone had did just that. It looked kinda goofy to be honest. It reminded me of a covered horse and wagon. Couldn't see from the picture where it was attached though.

Thanks Darryl! I like that


Yeah todd whats up with that wheeelie bar? Silly


Yes MTW fabrication and some others sell extensions for stock cage but even those sell for 999. so i might as well get a full new cage for that.

Darryl where did you find those pics? i want to ask the owner where he bought that cage extension? Or if he had it made? I dont like the cage extension optiopns that are available. Thats what i want, along with a roof. Covered wagon looking or not lol
