Roll bar padding and Soundbar change
Hi all, I am new to the forums and a new wrangler owner. I attempted to search for similar topics, but every search came out so long that it wasn't able to find anything. The jeep I bought has some sun-faded rollbar padding and the soundbar looks rough, I am wondering if the padding can be dyed back black, as well as the soundbar or if it is easier to swap it out with just better condition ones. I know a lot of you guys will say just take them off because it looks better, but I like the way the padding looks, especially if it wasn't purple...

My second question, can I swap out the padding and soundbar(s) from 03-06 and make them work and look good on my 1999?

Use some back to black for your soundbar, and I used some black spray paint on the pads and they look good.

they're cheap to replace and will look so much better than painting them, i think. here's a link for them for $99: Original Replacement Parts 13612.15 - Roll Bar Cover Kit in Black Denim for 97-02 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec

Thanks for the link :thumb:

I am wondering, right now my padding stops a few inches before the soundbar, the one from the link shows that it covers everything. Hows does this work, as my soundbar now barely goes around the entire bar, much less adding padding that it would need to go around to.

Duplicolor fabric and vinyl dye works really well to refresh faded covers and is not stiff or sticky or anything... Did mine a year ago.. 2 cans will cover nicely.
