looks interesting, would it still be beneficial without a roll bar?

Check his question again. It was worded poorly. He's asking whether or not these bars would do any good if he does NOT have a roll bar already in place.

I would say yes. Stiffness is stiffness. I'd want to fabricate a backing plate to match the one from hard dog though.

Did you ever find out if these fit nb's? I'm definitely interested.

Just an fyi, unless you're the same dude on cr.net, there is some dude selling these for 150-175 shipped... or at least in the process of trying to, lol.

I have not had them tested on an nb yet, but im 95% sure they will fit, i finally got a review back from djp, who said they did add rigidity and fit very well. Where are you located? I would gladly sell you a pair and if they dont fit i'll refund your money and pay the shipping costs back.
send me a pm,
Evan

If your going to spray them make sure the primer is a good Direct to metal primer or self etching.

I would like to order a set in a few weeks, bare because I can do my own paint and have plans for that.

For now i still have them bare, and i'm only going to prime them if someone requests it. I'm going to finish up a few more pairs to ship out between this weekend and next weekend, but i only have enough metal for maybe 3 or 4 more sets, so if you are seriously going to buy a set tell me now and I can reserve a set for you. After these next few are sold I'm going to need a few serious buyers before i get more metal.

The only review I've gotten back is from djp, who said they did stiffen the car nicely, but not as much as installing the frame rails did. From when I had them on my car, I noticed a definite increase in stiffness, but I have a completely stock car as far as suspension and stiffness go.

Good News!! I test fit the bars in a NB, just setting them inside, and they seemed to fit perfectly. I shipped out a pair to Nickblackbelt who has an NB, and will get the official word from him soon.
