Saddle bags

Is anyone using these, I ordered a used one from ebay, about $20, supposedly it is MOPAR, but it doesn't fit my '04 quite right, bag is'nt long enough, and the straps just barely fit around the padded roll bars. There are 2-3 other brands on ebay and other sites, which are good and will fit an '04 properly. thanx

The auction states 1993 or later Wranglers... but in 97 the roll bars were changed. I am not sure if the distance between them changed, but I know the angles did. Maybe this has to do with it?? I also think that the 04's got thicker padding around the bars.

Also - just something I was thinking about... I don't know if you are using these with a hard top or not, but I would not recommend using them with a soft top. Mainly b/c when you are parked, they will stand out and make for nice bait for the thugs walking around. I saw a poor old YJ that had a rectangle cut out of his side window. What a shame. Stupid criminal could have unzipped it quicker.

Just wanted to throw that out there.
