    Roll Bar?? Where to find one/ or go Custom

    I need a roll bar for my blazer at the sand dunes this year. Does anyone sell them or do I have to have a custom one built??

    If you do a search there are a couple posting on here. Easiest probably to go custom.

    Custom is the way to go. Premade means you have to many parts. You want one solid roll bar.

    Jegs sells a roll cage kit for 73-87 c/k trucks, not sure on the specs but it should fit the front seat area of a k5, you would still have to have a shop weld and install it.

    blazers had a factory/dealer option for roll bars. keep your eye out for one. i thought about getting rid of mine but finding out how hard they are to find i decided to keep it. also the ones that mount on the rear wheel house are nothing but for looks imo . it's the integrated roll bar that would save you.

    +1 for custom, you get a good experience doing it and you get exactly the look you want, instead of compromising with a premade one,
