I hate to burst your bubble but that cab has absolutely no roll over protection at all . If you looked at a REAL ROPS Bar before you built it you would see that the bar and the mounting is about 4 times the size of what you have on your cab(or you could have intergrated a real rops bar into your cab) . While it will keep you out of the weather and warm and you may not get hurt if something small falls on it don't rely on it to do much if you roll over . Unfortunately you just may find out fast how it will crush if you start towing from your big blue hook mounted that high on the rear axle housing . YOU NEVER EVER TOW ANYTHING FROM THAT HIGH OF A MOUNTING POSITION UNLESS YOU WANT TO FLIP THE TRACTOR OVER BACKWARDS . Having grown up in the Family Logging Business and rolling over one of our John Deere 548 Graple/Cable Skidders once and laying our John Deere 643 C Shear Head on its side shearing Red Pine for Telephone Poles I know what it takes to survive a roll over and that is not it so you best be careful and not get to brave with it . Thanks Tony

I agree on the big blue hook. That's the reason I inquired about it. A total No-No for pulling anything.
