Do you have a roof rack? You can mount it either on a roof rack or on your roll cage. You'll need a U-cradle for the roll cage. I had mine mounted underneath my Front Runner rack.

I'm going to need to mount it to the Roll bar (my Roof rack is a pair of Wolf load bars and a small Yakima basket for the front only)
Its also a Soft Top with a Hard top on it.. Right now.

What i'm trying to do is tuck it under load bar height. My VisionX lights sit above it and thus interfere with the Oztent, and anything else than hangs forward of the Roll cage bars.

If that makes sense.

I'm not certain, but I don't think you'll be able to squeeze a 50" bar on to a NAS cage without a weld on tab. I think you'll find that your clamps will land at the radius of the windscreen hoop where they won't work. A 40" will probably be your best option for a bolt-on solution, especially if your intention is to mount it below the roofline.

Here are two that I did so you can visualize a little better. Of course, neither are NAS cages but they should at least give you a little understanding of where things fall. The 90 is running a 51" bar on an SD cage with a light/limb riser combo tab I made, and the 110 has a 40" bar with an off the shelf Baja Designs clamp...although I had to make a spacer out of some 0.75" round stock to clear the upper roof bars on the PP cage.

Ash That Helps.. Looks like the 40" would work (or 2 - 20") I was looking at the single stack systems like you have pictured.

Yeah definitely go for a shorter single row if you're mounting it below the bar...on the 110 I had it set to where the bar was just baaarely visible from inside the truck, and that would have been tricker with one that was taller. I almost ran a pair of 20" bars on that truck...I think it would look pretty sweet if you pushed them towards the outside of the cage and left a gap in between.

Not sure what brands you're looking at, but if you've given any consideration to the Baja Designs line of products shoot me a PM. I can probably beat most guys out there on pricing.

I put a piece of flat stock alum across the top of the A hoop to allow fitment of anything I needed- went with two 25" dual row as it allowed fogs on each end and in the middle- and I had them from a previous build ;-)

This guy welded some tabs to his cage.

Also, I saw this clamp that should do the trick.
