Lets see your door bars

Well i boatsided and narrowed my truggy 12"ins. And i think im going to have to cover the door area with tubing. Im really to close to the outside of the cage now.

The hole is 47"in long by 41"tall. To do a buggy style straight bar that lines up with my hood and bodyline i'll only have like a 21in tall open. Alittle small for my big ass and the wife to climb into for a trail rig.

So its see your side bar ideas.

Here ya go. Not sure if it's what you want... I was thinking about running another bar from the intersection forward but I didn't think it would give me much more protection and it would make it a lot harder to get in/out. The bars actualy flair out and protrude into the door a couple of inches when the door is on...

I did mine this way on my uni-juggy-thing because the roofline on my cage is relatively low.

Probably not what you're looking for then...

I like this. Follows the lines of the seat, doesn't restrict access. Is strength an issue with the bends?

Mine is pretty simple. According to some of the comp regulations your door bar needs to be from your upper arm to mid calf with the front bar being within 9 inch of your pedals. For me that is where the bar is against my body. Girl in the picture is 10 inches shorter then me so it doesn't quite fit her.

Thinks guys.
Well i used about half a roll of tape. Tring to find a down bar i liked. Well i needed up going with just a single bar. That protects the seats and follows the angle of them.

Bad thing is. I had three more nutchs to make and my holesaw bit stagged and bent the shit out of my H/F notcher. Acouple wacks with a slegde. It's kinda straight. Well enough to finish the last couple notchs.

I hear you on that. My cage is now narrower then a yota body. I cut 2" ins off each side of my floor boards.

I like the look of RockControlXJ's, but would hit my knees too often bouncing around. Sorry apeters89, but those bars would annoy the fuck out of me. I have a lower b to a pillar tie-in that doesn't hit my legs and a pinned/hinged "door bar" that suicides out and makes a perfect armrest. It's removeable for soft top and doors and offers a bit of reinforcement but certainly isn't the strongest option.

I'm curious as to why? I haven't got to wheel with them yet.

For me, I would knock my lower legs, arms, and shoulders against them when bouncing around. Granted, when properly harnessed in you shouldn't move around much. I like to lean out and see where shit's at and those (depending on your height) look to be all in your pits and a bit of a hindrance.

Something that melds Gutter Runner's and RockContolXJ's together would be kinda cool.

Your's looks like you did what you did because you don't have access to a bender, and I'm pretty sure you do.

I ran mine across my shoulder to avoid a limb making it's way out in a roll. Have to lift my arm up and then out. Also put the upper front bar in to keep from relaxing my knee out the side. I'd rather it be hard to get in and out of the rig, than to not be able to get in and out of the rig at all. As you can see, the bars have met their fair share of rock. My passengers as well as myself have been glad they are there many times.

I did them this way 'cause I kept worrying as I was leaning over large rocks while in off-camber situations. I guess we'll see how i like them

Yup, there's a bender on the other side of that shop
