Looking for good rollbar and skid plate for 90 Toyota Pickup

Im new to these forums, and was hoping that someone could help me in my search to find a good (and semi-cheap) rollbar and a Skid plate for my '90 Toyota Pickup DLX 4x4 with a regular cab. It seems impossible to find any that work, i think the truck has a 2'' body lift, but im no expert. If someone could give me some brands that would work, that would be awesome.

Edit- Im also looking for a grille guard/brush guard to fit on my truck too.

Yeah..body lift has nothing to do with it. It'll either fit an 84-95 Toyota PU bed or it won't. I don't know what else to tell ya.

So anyways...back to this thread here...

I've got one that's similar. And I've got real world evidence to suggest that they offer a substantial amount of protection really. The cab and the upper doors would have been crushed and all the windows broken, and not JUST the windshield. WITHOUT A DOUBT, had the "rollbar" not been there. Now I'll never get rid of it.

I'd rather have a little extra steel stopping the cab from crushing in on me.

My buddy had a roll bar on his truck when it rolled down a steep mountain side.
He is 100% sure he nor the driver (cousin driving/wrecked his truck) would be alive if he didn't have the roll bar.

I have one on my truck just like the one in question. I know that it will not provide 100% protection, but it will help some. My wife likes the idea.

Resurrecting an ancient thread because, well, I just bought this roll bar. I had wanted one on my 94 4x4 Xtra cab for a while but it took some time to find one that was chrome (matching all my other chrome) and at a good price. I bought it because:
A) roll bars look cool as h3!! (and thus increase the value of the pickup)
B) they can save lives

Don't be deceived, folks; they aren't going to preserve your cab or offer the promise of keeping inhabitants injury-free. But a decent roll bar will absolutely limit the extent of a crushed cab in the event of a rollover, even if the bar is bed-mounted. That's the role (pun intended) of a roll bar. They offer more than simple aesthetic appeal. I'm guessing even the nay-sayers would rather roll over in a truck with a bar than without.



Now I just need to find new installation hardware. I have no idea who manufactured this part as it has no distinguishing marks at all. The specialized bolts that connect the bars have a round head that's sorta "rolled" to conform to the rounded tubing.

Resurrecting this old thread yet again. Have a hi lift and speakers mounted to my “roll bar” definitely like the look of these.
