Next step will be the rollbar bracket. Again, I used 12 gauge
sheet metal. The measurement was 2 inches wide by 8 inches long.
(The length may vary depending on the diameter of your rollbar. My
TJ's is about 2 1/8 inches in diameter).
Now comes the hardest part. Using the pull pin, roll one end of
the sheet metal around the pin until the end meets the metal
again. Should look sorta like a small letter 'b'. The machinist
who made mine heated the metal with a torch as he wrapped it
around the pull pin.
Next, position the just formed circle about 3 inches below the
bottom of the rollbar and mark where you will start to bend the
remaining straight portion of the bracket around the rollbar. Have
this bent on the opposite side of the hole for the pull pin. See
photo for a better idea of how this was done.
Once you have the bracket bent to the proper shape, cut out a
slot about 1/4 inch wide X 1 1/2 inches to 2 inches long up the
center of the bracket through the pull pin end. Again, look at the
photo. This slot is where the top portion of the Hi-Lift will slip
