SpoiledRotten They'll be ok.. I washed my 13 year old ones before I painted them. The zippers were just too far gone and were already broken. The washing didn't really help the looks but I fugured it was bound to help the paint stick better. I won't worry about them, though, when I my new ones are delivered in a few days. They'll be trash can buffering then.

KentuckyMike Have any of you washed the original covers before ? Mine are in good shape, but dirty. And the Spice color shows every speck of dirt. Was wondering if they will fall apart, if I washed them.

SpoiledRotten I actually got mine for $188 and free shipping. I'll be happy with that if they are true denim and good quality.

mrobinso There are a ton on eBay. Not cheap though. I think around $200 for a set.

Thats what i figured! Ill probably be stealing that idea for mine thanks!!

Also I am thinking about taking mine to an upholsterer and having them fix the zipper, OR using the ones I've got as a pattern and having some made in camo.
I'll let you know what I think about the new ones. Since they are Bestop denim, I'm hoping they are just like the original. I hated to go the $200.00 route for them, but just hope they are as good as the ones that came on the Jeep.

SpoiledRotten I thought there would be someone on this forum that had ordered some, but I guess not. I went on an ordered the Bestop black denim so hopefully, they will be as good as the original. Thanks anyway.

SpoiledRotten This is the before and after painting the covers. Still need to know if anyone has had the new ones from 4wd suppliers.

Replacemet Sports Bar Pad/Covers

I have the 2000 Wrangler Sahara with the Denim Spice SB covers. Yesterday, I decided to take them off and paint them black to go with my Black/Red theme. I've only got the console and the inner doors that are still tan color. Well of course, the zippers broke on a couple of them. Now, I'm shopping for replacements. I'm just not sure about the new, non-denim styles. I see the Best Top brand, but they don't have the two covers that go over the driver and passenger sides just behind the door surrounds.

Have you purchased some lately and if so, would you post the brand, and an opinion on the looks and quality of the ones you bought? I don't like to trust the reviews on the product pages as many will be false.

Thanks in advance.
