That's what I was thinking. I should be able to get a sports bar for under $100, a little time in the shed and make something up to mount it. Any chance of a pic of how yours is mounted?
I'm aware of the height issue, but it shouldn't be hard to make something to mount on top of the bar to raise the height enough to clear the roof.
