  • Factory Roll bar doesn't fit

    Has anyone else run across this?
    I removed the factory roll bar to work on my cj5. When I went to reinstall the roll bar, it doesn't fit. It's about 2 inches to narrow.
    What could cause this?

    Bolt down one side, then pull the other side over with a strap hooked to a post, wall, wife, etc...

      they are made so their is resistance in the tube when mounted. if you do like said above it will fit right in.
      if they built it I have had one or 10, if I have not had one yet, I am searching all the time for that type of jeep.

        Thanks for the insight. A buddy brought over his pipe spreaders...worked perfectly.
