Sports Bar/Roll Bar Covers

I am attempting to find new covers for my roll bar. My issue is I am trying to find them in OD Green to match the seatbelts and seat covers I am getting. Does anyone know where I can find them, I am having no luck?

I doubt you'll ever find them in that color. Your best bet is to just paint the covers with duplicolor fabric paint.

Looks like option two then which is have them made. You would think as many Jeeps as there are around someone would have developed custom covers. After all our motto is Just Empty Every Pocket.

It would not really make much sense to buy new ones then paint them. But i am buying black ones - or trying to. Rampage (company who makes the pads) and Summit Racing have delayed the pads for two months. Those are only $50, the Bestop ones are $150.

So yeah i would buy used.

What I plan on doing is buying a used set in any color in decent condition for as little as possible and THEN taking them to a marine upholstery shop and have them recovered with the water resistant/mold resistant vinyl in the color of my choice. Those shops have all sorts of colors and sheens and can order just about anything. It'll cost, but they will be exactly what I wanted and withstand the UV and elements very well.

my 2cents

Thank you. I am trying to save cash doing this I am married and would like to stay that way. I spent 880 on the interior yesterday. I already have a custom rifle mount so I guess custom covers won't be much more. We have some good upholstery shops in town hopefully I can just hit one of them up and have the sound bar recovered at the same time. Also whomever gave me the thumbs up, thank you.

I just took mine off last week. They had been on there for at least 20 years and were looking a bit worse for wear. I'll probably get another set later, but I kind of like how it looks without them.

I'm running without any because the 1991 YJ had a one-year-off seat belt post location and no manufacturer makes them. It does look good, until you bonk your head like I did on the trails a few weeks ago.

I'd like to see a pic or two of that, if you don't mind.
