    Most states have a program to get you a certified ROPS for a couple of hundred bucks. I would take that route long before building one.

    The NY one is: Rollover Protective Structure ROPS Retrofit Program
    Looks like there isnt one for MO. CDC - Agricultural Safety: Cost-effective Rollover Protective Structures - NIOSH Workplace Safety and Health Topic has plans to make them.

    I read somewhere that manufacturers encouraged dealers to sell ROPS at cost.
