Default Light Bars & Roll-Over

Is anyone aware of any light bar that provides roll-over protection ?

if you need protection from a rollover, you need a roll bar. light bars have a 1" steel bar in them, thats not enough to do anything. why do you need a light bar with a coupe?

ahh... gotcha, welp for him its either the light bar or the roll bar. the light bar looks better and is easier to install but the roll bar will save your life in a roll over. i've seen a couple people put in a roll bar and wrap it with foam and leather to make it look similar to the light bar (minus the light), looks damn good but its very expensive..

i have the light bar because they look hot.

put on a roll bar, then take it to an upholstery shop and have them stitch up a nice bit of leather wrap for it. You could even have them set up some LED's in the fabric so you can have the light bar effect with real rollover protection. The LED fab would be hella simple.
