Smittybilt rear window slider

So I'm sure this has probably been asked alot on here but I can't find any threads, I have a soft top Smittybilt top on my TJ and the rear window zipper sliders are fubar. Do you guys know of anywhere I can find some replacements? I went to the local upholstery shops around here and they have nothing to match the zippers on the top/windows, and I'd really like to have the sliders instead of paying like crazy to have the whole zippers replaced.

Ok I'll give that a shot, all the teeth on both the window and the top are perfect, it's just the zipper itself that was messed up

Jeepit has a slider replacement kit that might work for you. They have a number of useful items that solve small annoying problems.

Update: got the #10 sliders, and I can easily get the sliders on either side one at a time, however I cannot get them to connect together to save my life! I've tried idk how many times but no luck so far grrr!
