I think for dd/track duty you should look into the fm butterfly brace, my thought would be roll bar ties into the "frame rails" and the door bars also tie into these. The butterfly brace strengthens it from underneath the car making It look the same with even more strength then the door bars could give.

In theory at least

Word is door bars do more then butterfly. If you are lowered the butterfly will be your new skid plate as well.

It would Probobly add a lot of strength if you welded the frame rails onto the car, then use the bolts for the brace itself.

Joking aside,

We need pics to asses this situation!

Other than saying that, I really have nothing I can contribute to this conversation, I have no doorbars...

door bars>butterfly

But the smarter move is a peep mirror mounted to the glovebox door.
