On the back shackle there seems to be something going from the leaf bolt up the frame. Can't see it good. If it keeps the shackle fixed, than it would be just another mount. Stupid way of moving it forward, but it may work.

TV Shows are always good for a few, Why would they show that on TV!

I remember seeing that checkered strap wrapped around that 205 on their '58 Apache. Welderup made a big deal about showing how they struggled to lift it into place &, eventually, one of the guys bench pressed it up while the others attempted to mount it to the frame.

Yep, I've removed and installed the NP201's by my self with less drama and problems. Love the front drive shaft angle with out a CV joint as well.

Its a show where you laugh at the stupidity, not the craftsmanship. First scene is them stumbling with it while it was a rolling chassis and forklift in the back ground Next scene the body is on and theyre crowded underneath.

Around here they use a seat welded into the top of an old gravity wagon, that way you can take your corn pile with you.

As I said "Why would they show that on TV". Not saying they build quality, just why if you are a legitimate business do you let craftsmanship like that get on the air. None of the shows are about the quality/build, they have all been ruined with the reality tv buzz crap.

So I don't know if this qualifies. I also don't know if they have these in the states, but here in Chile lots of trucks have these roll bars. At first glance, they look real heavy duty. I'm not sure if you can zoom in here, but the bottom of the bar is mounted to a U shaped piece of sheet metal. I looked at one up close and it was not even 1/8" thick. If the bar was welded to a flat plate that thin it wouldn't be great, but to go to a U turned on its side is really strange.

Useless. Another spot for mall bros to put a light bar

Not entirely useless, even if they are often used for light bars.

The high spec versions of most japanese pickups don't have a headache rack, while the low spec or so-called "developing market" versions do. I'd wager it's many years since the toyota pickup had a headache rack in the US market. (did it ever?) We lost them around 2005 or something.

These bars can be used in the same way as a headache rack and in the Australian market are often used with a rear hoop to function as a ladder rack by contractors.



Same car with same "sport bar" (their name, not mine) setup as a ladder rack

Yes, they're ugly, no, they're not a roll bar, but calling them useless isn't accurate.

They are useless as rollover protection, which is the whole point of a roll bar.

That's what I think. Still don't understand the mount shape. Better pic of mount.

But they’re not a roll bar, implicitly or explicitly.

You are missing the progression of those useless things. It started in the '70s with roll bars. Actual heavy steel tubing installed to help with rollover protection in factory vehicles. Then it went to adding them to other trucks as part of the "offroad" look. They were still decently made but were typically bolted to weak sheetmetal in the bed with no reinforcement. Then they went to what amounted to chrome plated exhaust tubing that had no structural value whatsoever and were called "show bars" as a result. Then came the ultimate in idiocy for those who wanted the "roll bar" look, but didn't want to take up bed space, so they made those moronic things that mount to the bed rails in the late '80s.

They went form something actually useful to a useless piece of trash that is barely capable of mounting a set of lights to and are so poorly engineered that even if you did, the lights shake and vibrate enough to give seizures to anyone in sight of them. Not to mention the utter jackassery of mounting lights to the top of your vehicle anyway. So while they might be something useful to other cultures, here in the US, they are a reminder of what happens when people try so hard to look like something while completely forgetting why the look was created in the first place. You may as well go full retard and add the 8" exhaust stacks not hooked up to anything and the fake ABS plastic hood scoops and an ATV winch wood screwed into the plastic fascia.
