Building a set of back straps for a spare tire carrier... got the idea from our friend ridge runner. Bought the roll bar clamps off of eBay 20.00 each... the pipes are 1.75 front roll bar straps from summit racing 50.00 for both... local powder coater said he would coat them for 30.00 more pics to come as it goes on.

I see. I was wondering if that's what you were doing.

Thanks Batman...I'm always looking for something to modify...I had to do a little cutting around the bars so the roof would fit... but I'm pleased with how everything turned out... total money invested was 170.00

I really like that. Maybe a cross bar in the middle and you could mount speakers.
