Replace a top

This is gonna make me look like a tool but I bought a 2000 wrangler sport and it had no top. It has the factory hardware but I think something is missing. Shouldnt there be 2 clamps to clamp the top down in the front? I had a TJ years ago and it did. Thanks

it will depend somewhat on the type of top that you have......some have the latch type like on your old TJ and some have a "no drill header"......bottom line it has to hook into the front windshield somewhere...and be held in place....but yeah pics would help
