Seatbelts - I have to go aftermarket because you can't just buy a female end for the driver's seatbelt.

Rollbar padding- Bestop apparently only makes this in black now and I need spice. The zippers on mine are shot.

It seems like the aftermarket is more kind to the CJ guys. I'd like a factory seatbelt, but a nice repro rollbar cover'd be good. Problem is my only options are Bestop(which I think are the best) only come in black, and the other suppliers don't make the covers that go on the windshield bars.

Check the dimensions, I know some people around here use TJ stuff for some things because it sorta fits.

Thats what I was going to mention. I bet you could find a few OEM parts from salvage yards or are you looking for brand new?

I don't think used roll bar padding would be so good. The zippers on mine have gone to crap. They don't stay zipped in the middle.

I'll figure it out but it's sure a pain in my ass!

Every other female end for the driver's side I've found has been bid up to at least $50, which is ludicrous.
