Go Rhino (formerly Grizzly) @ sells some pretty slick looking singles. I had to do a lot of my own research just to find them. Also if you want a roll bar for more than aesthetic purposes (like saving your life) I recently learned that you'd need to have one fabricated to attach to the frame rather than just the bed of the truck. Hope I've helped.

its a lot of bed surgery to attach a rollbar to the frame. but one thats just bolted to the bed really wont add any strength in a rollover. prob 99% of the rollbars you see out there on the street are just bolted to the bed
