Wink soft top?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows if a factory soft top for 2007 unlimited sahara would fit on a 2013 unlimited sport?

Nope. If I remember correctly, the back glass is different.

It will fit, but you need all the hardware. The footman's loop behind your rear view mirror (that the freedom panels latch to) is in a different location than the 07-09s, so you'd need to remove it, or trim the header bar to get the correct fitment.

The 07-08 tops also use an annoying retainer system to keep the top down. 09+ use a cable system. 11+ have bigger windows. 13+ have a spring assist system. They all can fit on all wrangler years 07-13 as long as the hardware is included.

I recommend looking for an 11+ top because the windows make the top look much cleaner.

I do not believe this is correct. I saw a thread on there where someone tried it and the back window was too short. Cant find the thread anymore.

Perhaps that person was trying to fit a 11+ window on a 07-10. That would not work because the windows are bigger on the newer models. Or, he mixed soft top parts from different years.

The 07-13 body has not changed in terms of the top fitment. The only difference is that one footman's loop behind the mirror, which was moved to accommodate a change to the freedom top design (t-tops used to latch to themselves, now they latch to the front windscreen).

If you have ALL of the hardware (door surrounds, soft top, frame, windows) for that year, it will fit any year, as long as you deal with the footman's loop issue (which is really a non-issue).
