Replacement Roll Bar Padding

I have had enough of smashing my head into the bare metal roll bar and need to buy new padding (I threw the old stuff out since it smelled like a dead animal).

Anyone have any reviews on the ones available? I have seen the Bestop, Rampage, and OMIX ADA, but not many reviews on any of them. I have seen some negative YJ reviews on the Rampage ones.

Ideally, I want one that I can just install. I don't want to have to cut out the bolt holes or anything else, just zip them on like the OEM ones.

Anyone buy a set?

I have no experience with any of them but my padding is faded and If I had to pick one I would pick bestop because they manufacture some of the oem fabric pieces for the jeep (soft top) and are known to have good quality so I would trust them.

My father in law dyed his faded padding. Not sure what he used

Found this on CL this morning, I'm sure they would be willing to ship

Hi All,

I've just ordered a full set of Rugged Ridge Black Denim Rollbar covers and will be happy to write up a bit of a review when I get and install them.
Also have ordered a full Bikini top, A Cargo cover for the back and a new Bedrug Carpet and heat shield.

I just replaced mine with the Bestop padding. So far, I'm very pleased with them.

Where they a direct fit with no modifications required? No cutting, no trimming?

Roll Bar Pads

I've had 6 jeeps and the roll bar pads have always been ragged and faded after a few years... I've used all the brand and it is a toss up on best quality and fit..But this jeep I tried a little trick... I washed my outer covers in the dishwasher... Then I went and bought some black dye ( like clothing dye at Walmart) and soaked them overnight in the solution ( cheap totes work well).. Used double the recommended amount of dye... Rinsed them out the next day and dried them.. Installed after lubricating the zippers and looks awesome... And it saved a ton of hard earned coin..

Forgot the brand but I bought some off another member last yr that all the pieces velcro over the roll bar except the ones above the doors(wtf?) Call me lazy but I did not even want to dismount the roll bar to slide them over so I painted my faded spice color padding with black fabric rattlecan paint to match. Worked out great.

They don't last as long, but using something like pool noodles works good as well. A few of those and some zip ties and you are good to go.
