I took the rear roll bar off my M4 just by removing 10 bolts. Since I am a tall guy I do not plan on making the roll bar any shorter.

I'm with you, at 6'7", I much prefer the cage nice and tall. Keeps my melon from dragging if I end up shiny side down.

I haven't gotten my 700-4 yet, but when I do 3" need to come off the top. I am glad there is some discussion on this matter. Mine also needs to fit in my cargo trailer. I was thinking maybe just deflate the tires in and out, but that would be a hassle.

I assume the doors and rear panels will not fit if the roll bar is lowered?

Yes, once you chopped, you'd have to keep on chopping.

I just discovered that with the plastic roof the height is about 81".:eek: I have a 74" door on my trailer.:mad: Dang, one thing leads to another. I don't think I can even deflate the tires that much!

Have the same problem. I don't think it would of fit without the top either. Mine is an enclosed livestock trailer. It would of been a good place to store it when not in use. Not sure about chopping up the pioneer so it may be time to start looking for a taller livestock trailer.

I would think the soft wouldn't increase any height. With that and deflating the tires I could squeeze in. 78" with out the hard top. I have a 74" door. It does pose a problem. I may go look at a used stock trailer today. Some of them have taller doors than my cargo trailer.

I like the roll cages, I see a customized aluminum top with an area where the the front cage joins the rear to store extra gear. Or maybe when you have 4 people you can put everything on the roof.

Maybe a set of slave wheels with no tires on them and a couple passengers in the back would get it to fit. Then swap the wheels and tires when you get where your going. Seems like a pain but might save you from getting a new trailer.....
