An actual safe and functional roll bar? There are none. You would have to have one custom built. That process requires a lot of cutting up of interior bits.

It can be done the right way though, and though it involves cutting the interior, it doesn't mean destroying it. Check out the pics of Graywolf's ride in the "owner's rides" gallery.

WAY far better than most, certainly the "Style Bar" (as for actual protection). The forward bars could be done in such a way to allow ingress/egress a little easier. I wonder if there are any bars going into the trunk. Maybe I will PM him.

Gray wolf is a good guy.  I had a couple of PM exchanges with him.  I may get Larry Casey and him to compare notes, as Casey Designs is a candidate to fabricate and install.

I'm looking to get Larry to do an alignment and a few thing for me, and while I'm there I'd like to pic his brain about roll bar ideas.
