    I'm hoping to fit roll bar behind the front seats. It has to fit under my soft-top and replace the rickety canvas frame. I've seen a lot of nice (but flimsy looking) tub edge mounted ones but which are often for defenders. Are the tub sizes the same?

    My military series 3 doesn't seem to have many options unless the tub widths are the same.

    Can I add, I realise these edge mounted systems are not the best design for roll over protection.

    This is the kind of thing i'm looking at - https://www.gumtree.com/p/car-replacement-parts/land-rover-defender-military-roll-bar/1265910646

    Across the tub is the same. While not of the same level of strength as a full roll over hoop with a diagonal bar the military one does increase protection.
    In early days of trialing we were allowed to enter if we had the screen up and canvas hoops on.:eek:
    Saw one or two go over on to their sides and it was enough to prevent them going any further protecting the crew and saving any further damage.
