Has anyone tried raising the rollover bar by inserting blocks between

Recommended Posts

I know people buy the Brey Krause rollover bar extension for extra clearance, but do you think it's possible to simply carve some chunks of steel or aluminum to fit between the OEM roll bar and whatever it bolts to in an effort to raise it a couple inches? I realize it would involve more labor for installation, but wouldn't that be a more elegant solution?

Of course the bolts would have to be the strongest around, and the fitment would have to be ideal, but assuming those things are dialed in, what other things are there to consider. I don't think it would significantly compromise the structural integrity if done right.

Your thoughts?

Only concern I would have is the strength of the pins that the roll bar are connected to.

I snapped one with a faulty torque wrench :-(

Would the spacer compromise the posts?

Otherwise it seems like a good idea if there is clearance for your top (you'll need to remove your windscreen)
