Trade in your factory hoops for some real protection! The Hard Dog Hard Bar is made of 1.75" diameter DOM tubing and bolts into the factory mounting spots for a simple installation. The diagonals fit right through the cutouts for the stock hoops for a clean look.
Complete function of the factory power hard top is retained. Unfortunately, the mechanics of the power top mean that this bar is no taller than the factory hoops. It's stronger, but helmet clearance will not be increased over stock.
While there is no fore-aft bracing in standard form, an optional Petty bar is available that will satisfy almost every track day organization. The Petty bar bolts on to the center of the bar and runs diagonally to the outside edge of the passenger's footwell. It can be removed for day-to-day use and bolted in for the track. Due to the way the bar crosses the passenger's seat, it is not recommended to carry a second person in the car with the bar installed. Top function is not affected by the Petty bar.
Due to the low height of this bar and the lack of any fore-aft bracing without the Petty bar, it is not accepted by many track organizations.
A harness bar is an option. This replaces the factory cross bar with one that is integrated into the rollbar and provides a mounting point for harnesses.
For cars with a soft top, the taller Hard Dog Sport is also available and recommended.
Shipping note: These bars will be drop-shipped from the manufacturer. These bars are usually kept in stock. If not, depending on where the bars are in the production process, it could take approximately 2-6 weeks for delivery. If you would like one shipped outside the US, please contact Hard Dog Fabrication directly.
