Replacement roll bar padding

Looks like I am going to have to cut the padding off my bar to get to a broken bolt that holds the windshield bar on. Anyone know where I can find replacement padding?

As far as I know there arent many good places to find replacement roll bar padding. I think I have seen black denim or something like that. I was looking for replacements for my 88' a while back too.

See, I was thinking about seeing if I could paint mine, it's a graysh/faded color, but was thinking it would look alot slicker without it. What is it's purpose?

I had mine off and it only took one time offroad, slammed my head on it. The next day I put it back on.

Quadratec has it in black denim for $114 new. If you post a WTB (want to buy) on here describing year and color of your roll bar padding, I'm sure someone has something laying around in their garage they would be willing to sell you at a reasonable price.

When I was 20 I knew everything, when I was 30 I knew something, at 40 I know nothing!

e-bay usually has the zip-up type with cheesy foam, also the high density foam type is available. I guess I don't understand why it would need to be replaced to affect repair. It should be removable or at least scrunched out of the way during the repair. If it can be replaced, then the original should be able to be removed to allow a repair to begin with. Or am I totally wrong with this logic? If you were to remove the bolt near the main hoop for the front spreader (to windshield), then you should be able to remove the padding on this bar so that you can perform your repair. Granted, both bars will need to be unbolted, then fold the windshield forward enough to remove the padding from the rear.

Anyone have any ideas as other ways to pad the rollbar? I saw a Jeep with climbing rope wrapped around the rollbar that looked pretty cool. Anyone else have any other ideas that would make a cool roolbar?

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing, why it needed to be replaced, mine has zippers too. I'm just not sure what the material is? I'd love to paint it black.

I don't think they have been unzipped in 19 years. So far no amount of pb blaster has got them to budge

It's true, the only after market padding for the 87-91 YJ with the "sport" bar (not the "family" bar) is the black denim color. I have no idea why nobody makes a gray or spice/tan version. Would be nice to get a set of high quality pads for the bars.

Drive like you're going somewhere.

I have a complete gray set that I was going to use on my YJ but changed my mind. It needs to be cleaned. I will sell it for $50.00 shipped.

Mark, I see you were smart and left the headbanger bar covered, lol. Looks good. Mine is white too, but I was thinking of either painting the covers black or removing them and painting the rollbars black.
Hey, do you know if there is any paint that you can use to paint that style of flares? Mine are painted, but it's real thick and all cracked up.
