Started out rust free, blasted and galvanized

This the bar that goes behind the front seats in a NAS Soft top (may also work with SW but not sure)

Nice piece, not to thread crap but I still wish the bars were lower so that we could recline our seats further back to almost laying down like regular cars hehe. I would love to sleep comfortably in my D90, like you know when you stalking women etc.


Just kidding :D

Just to add to Dave's thread if anyone is looking to convert a ht to a st and needs this bar and the B pillar supports, I had a machine shop here in SD that will make you up a pair of the B pillar inside the tub supports that are connected with this bar.

That is it what my post was about if I am understanding you correctly. Goes to the B pillar support from the inside of the tub. If you need them, I have the name of the machine shop that will fab them for you. Takes me out of the loop.

Yep....reviving an old ass thread. I've been scanning threads on process to remove the ROW 90 rear bulkead and add the NAS removal bar set up but without much luck. Seems a rather simple task but I don't want to end up hacking something off with an angle grinder that I shouldn't have. Anyone have a link, thread recommendation, photo step by step of the removal and installation ?

Also, I'm looking for that removal bar set up seen above. I've seen them in several sites but curious if any are better than other.

Lastly, as I'm sure a ton of guys have been through this, feel free to chime in with advice and thoughts to help me knock this little project out.

Thanks in advance.

Ill let you know how it goes. I am starting the removal of my bulkhead tonight (stripping interior), with the goal of being done by the weekend, wrenching (cutting) on it for a couple hours a night after work. I am replacing it with the SD NAS style cage.

I don't think there is anything you can cut off that you will need. The only differences I have seen is around the wheel well area the rivets on the body are above the wheel well on ROW vs lower on the NAS. Some ROW people leave the upper lip. I am going to hack it off. If it means the panel is now floppy ill put some Sikaflex on it, rivet it and or weld if I have to make it look nice. I had a local body shop supply mix me up some aerosol paint to cover the areas that get hurt by the angle grinder.

Adam, the amount of work you've done in a short amount of time is impressive. Keep the photos coming, they're helpful.

Which cage did you get? I thought that they are a bit different than true NAS with regards to the rear bulkhead.

I don't have a NAS truck to compare it to but it looks same/similar to me. It will work with the bulkhead if you cut some sections out. I'm just going to do the whole thing. http://www.safetydevices.com/expedit...agon/276/1784/

Adam - your right. The ST ones that SD makes are different. I never look at the others.
