tnjeeprider Try daveysjeep.com They are great to deal with.

Dutch 95 Ran into this exact same issue when we replaced ours! But, I know a way to remove it for free. Take the other torx bolts out from the back of the of the roll bar instead! They screws into the end of the tube horizontal tubes. I think the ones on top bolts just allow adjustment forward and back if necessary. I'm not really sure what the point of the tamper proof bolt (on the drivers side only) is.

Jeeprich25 It's called tamper proof torx. Get a set that us hollowed out. Harbor freight.

olbaid_83 its a safety torx. i believe a t40 if memory serves. if you only plan on removing them once you can use a set of vice grips on them if they will break free easily otherwise i know they sell the bit at lowes. between 5-10 bucks each. good luck!!

yeah i noticed the same thing when i took mine off, if you haven't already got a solution you can just go to autozone or another parts store and they should have bits in stock. i got my set from autozone.

My padding is from mcmaster carr, about 3/4" thick if memory serves, way more than stock - which padding do you want when your in the big rocks and your head is getting thrown around like a rag doll?
Quality point if the user is going to be going offroad. Maybe the user just wants the padding for the looks.

AfterMath You could get the spice or gray pair and spray paint them with vinyl/fabric paint.
