Default WTB: Roll bar

So I'm unhappy with the current roll bar and I'm torn between trying to sell just the roll bar ("Yes sir, if you're 5'5" or under, this is the roll bar for you!") and selling the whole car and starting over with a 1.8l car.

To help me decide, I'd like to see if I can find a good deal on a better roll bar. Preferences:

*Hard Dog or Boss Frog
*Must be hardtop-compatible
*Prefer side-latch compatible
*Don't care if it's glass-window compatible or not
*Prefer 1 or 2 diagonals to no diagonals but not critical
*Prefer harness bar to no harness bar

Not interested in driving further than a day.

Whatcha got?

Missed out on a Boss Frog double hoop for $375 on eBay the other day.

What else is out there? Don't make me order a new one.

Thanks

Kirk Racing 6 pt roll bar, not really more than one way to install it unless you cut tubes and reweld it.

Dam you Mark!! About 4 months ago, I had Kirk build me the exact one without the side bars - like I sold you. Maybe next time I need something, I'll call ya to see if you're selling something

You installed it yet? How do you feel about the head clearance?

yeah, it's in - I'm 5'9" and can touch the bar if I stretch back. Plus I've got HD padding on it too - the GeForce SFI stuff. It doesn't interfere with driving around town, so I'm ok with it. Probably the beefiest bars you can get really. Not being able to use the OEM sidelatchs does suck, but I'm working on a different side latch mechanism that twists rather than popping up to lock it down. Clearance, I could use some more - but I plan on replacing the seats (or altering the oem) so that I can sit maybe an inch lower and won't have to worry about skull crackage if getting *** pounded... HD padding or not - that **** is hard!
