Hi all,

I have just gotten a Hilux s/c which will be used for moving furniture, was thinking of putting a rollbar(but only to protect the roof incase load is leaning against the part above the back window) Can you please advise on what other uses of a roll bar are?, what are the disadvantages and advantages of having it?

Exactly what the name implies. It protects the cab from collapsing if you should roll the vehicle. It's a safety feature.

Some flimsy light metal bar will not do that. Now if it is properly designed, sure, it can serve that purpose.

If it'll take up load space, i'd rather not have it, seems i won't get value for the 4k they quoted me
