Replacement zipper sliders

My zipper slider for the back window broke a few weeks ago and the <nobr>Jeep</nobr> dealers in my area were no help!

I found a website that sells the big zipper sliders used on the back and side windows of TJ softtops (well my '00 anyway) The website is They are under hardware then heavy zippers. They only cost $1.22 a piece, much better that the $90 the upolstery shop wanted to replace the whole zipper or the $165 the dealer wanted for a new back window.

They are the YKK 10mm plastic continuos coil zipper sliders that are almost as big as a quarter.

Disclaimer! I did have trouble getting the right parts the first time [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img], but they were fairly quick to rectify the situation. I hope you all have better luck if you need any of these!
