Default Roll bar netting

I have a roll bar in my ranger from a cj7 im getting ready to remove the beadliner and install some rear facing seats against the cab, id like to have a netting around the bar for whoever sits in the back to keep them from other things in the back. Like this net id like to find a cheap version of this

You're going to run severely afoul of the law with passengers in the bed of a truck. The days of kids/friends riding in the back is long gone, I'm afraid.

If you want the netting, look at eBay and see if you can find something similar.

Ive never had an issue with anyone riding in the back, i do live in florida though and may just have luck. I dont let anyone under 18 ride in the back though. My goal is to put decent seats with 4 point harnesses. Mostly for when we are out at river ranch on the trails

Off-road is far and away different, to be sure.

I think the legality of passengers in the bed of a truck is determined the state. I see many a people in truck beds around here in Kentucky (go figure). And have yet to see / hear of someone getting a ticket cuz of it. I'd look into your local laws to see if it's legal. If it's a big no no and you happened to go on the road id feel like I wasted my time/ money doing this project if I'm just gonna get tickets.

If riding in the back of a truck you must have a seat with seatbelts mounted to the truck, not to the seat, to be legal, anywhere. Anyone riding in any part of any vehicle in any state must wear a seatbelt. ON ANY PUBLIC ROAD.

Does anyone know a company that sells heavy duty cargo net or military cargo net cheap? Just looking to cover the back of the roll bar

See if there are any military surplus stores around you. May not fit exactly right. But I'm sure you could make it work and I bet it'd be cheaper going that route than buying a net dedicated to fit that particular roll bar.

Check a truck dealer, freightliner, kenworth , peterbilt, mack, ect. Lots of trucks with sleeper cabs have a net in them. Keeps the person sleeping from flying out if the driver makes a sudden stop.

Get a tailgate net.
Are you sure nobody is going to smack their head on the bar?
