    Hey guys, I want a toolbox for storage needs but i like the look of roll bars. I am thinking of building a double roll bar for the truck and then put a toolbox on the inside of it and make it flush with the top of the rails. If anyone has pics of roll bars or any advice it would be greatly appreciated :eek:

    Anyone at all have pics of rollbars on 2nd gen tacomas? I have seen the light bars that sit on top of the rails and they look good I just couldn't weld any brackets to fit my toolbox on a light bar. The white retro SEMA tacoma is the set up I'm thinking of going for but I can't find any pics of the rollbar mounted. Anything you guys got helps!:)

    edit last post..... i am ordering my pipe in th next couple days and was hoping to see pics of rollbars/sport bars on tacomas. First gen are more than welcome :) I am thinking about doing a double roll bar with 3'' 1/8'' B.I. pipe. any suggestions on pipe thickness or whether or not i should use tubing instead of pipe would be greatly appreciated! I have only seen a couple ones on TW so far so the more the better.

    toyotadude5, what size tubing or pipe do you have there? Trook looks great my rollbar might look a bit like yours :D but instead of that awesome tire holder i will have a toolbox in there

    Here is mine. Not finished yet. Needs to be cut down just looking for someone to do it for free or trade or something.

    Below is what it is supposed to look like. But I have a short bed. So I have to cut it down or find someone to trade with.\
