Can I dye a Drk. Khaki Soft Top Black ??

Guy on Craigslist has a Drk. Khaki Soft top for a 2dr Jk. Brand New still in boxes for $495. My Jeep is Sunburst Orange and I figure the gray color will look like crap on my Jeep. Is there any way to turn that top black and make it look good and last ??

Thanks guys

Don't worry. When they get dirty they all look khaki.

I think the Sunburst orange would look SWEET with a dark khaki top. But that's just my opinion.

You guys really think it would look good ???
Gray top on a Sunburst Orange Jeep !
I am really thinking about going ahead and getting it....It is a brand new top with hardware and still sealed in the boxes.

you could always sell it and get most of your money back if you don't like it...

Well it was a joke.... I went on a 45 min drive down there to see this guys complete soft top and all he had was the top ! no windows...no door surrounds and no hardware. I was a little pissed.......and then he asked me what I would give him just for the top.... I told him $ 100 since I have to go find Dark Khaki windows and all the hardware and surrounds. He said no he would not take any less than $300. I told him good luck and left. I stopped by a stealership and they wanted $326 just for a dark khaki window kit !!! Anyway....I guess my search will continue.
