You can have a roll bar and still have usage of the back seat.

You don't need a rollcage.

11.99 you need a 6 (technically 8 with the kicker bars) pt roll bar
9.99 you need an 8 ("" "" "" 10 ) pt roll cage
7.50 opens a whole different world

Roll bars have to be 1-3/4", roll cages can be 1-5/8".

FYI at 11.99 there are a lot of other safety rules that start as well - not just a cage

it comes down into the front edges of the back seat, but it's upholstered around the cage and looks freakin stock....incredible look and doesn't bother anyone

Is it NHRA or SCCA legal with a removable center section????

I think it would lose any legality to it by doing that.

Most don't want to spend the money for a custom cage, why I don't think it was ever mentioned.

Here's two pics of my bar that was custom fabricated by Romar Enterprises

Would strongly encourage anyone with a roll bar or cage who drives on the street to instally good, high density padding to prevent injury if your unhelmeted head happens to hit the bar in an accident. A lot of the engineering for interior auto safety is oriented to softening or removing what your head might hit when it is propelled in directions and distances that are hard to believe, even if you are belted in. Standard 3 point belts allow a lot of body movement in an accident. Racing harnesses obviously allow less.

Smart man. Nobody should use anything less in a caged car.
