Roll Bar Padding on a 99

Whats up guys? Finally have a little extra cash to spend on my 99 Sport. I'm ordering a new top from Quadratec this week and I'm also looking to replace my roll bar covers/padding because they have faded. I was wondering if I could put thicker covers/padding on? I dont mind the skinny look of them right now but I prefer the thicker look. I have heard of people having to do some modification but it can work. Just looking for some feed back if anybody has done it! Also, I'm looking for some new fender flares. What are you guys opinions on getting them a bit wider than the stock ones?

The 03-06 roll bar padding is thicker (plastic spacer) than the earlier stuff. It isn't structurally stronger, just looks bigger.

Fender flare options vary far and wide, pun intended. Some folks like the stock look, others like the flat flare looks. Pick one or the other, or tube or metal fenders, and try to narrow it down from there.

I got the rugged ridge ones last summer. The fit was nice,Easy install. The only thing I didn't like we're the main hoop to the window frame. Very thin padding and both sides ripped. Other than that it was a fair price.

Pull off old covers and hand wash or machine wash zipped up. Then get a can of duplicolor fabric spray.

What's the biggest tire I can put on a stock rim. I have a 99 with 15" rims.

If you do this, DO NOT machine dry! My pad covers fell apart in the dryer. The duplicolor works great.

It depends on what stock rim you have. If you don't know, I would recommend posting a picture of your wheel in a new thread. Welcome to the Forum.
