Hardtop Compatibility

I found a hardtop from a 2007 JKU in a reasonable driving distance. Will that one fit my 2014 with no issues? I don't want to drive 5 hours and then run into an issue.
thanks,
Rob

All the tops we have list the same part # for all '07 through '14 JK's. So you should be good to go!

Only differance I'm aware of is the front center footmans loop is a couple inches off on the older models...which is easly relocated, other then that it's a direct fit

That might pose a problem for a 4 hour drive in December. Anyone know what year they changed the location of the loop? And wouldn't that then affect how my soft top attaches?

The footman loop move was in '09. Soft tops prior to that had a small groove for the loop. After that the groove was made a lot longer, which made the loop position of no concern.

Hardtop, the footman loop is used as an anchor for the hardtop latch on later models, again the change was is '09.

We have '07, '08, 09, and '13 here for me to compare.

Thanks, really appreciate it. I will start looking at 09 and newer tops. Too bad I found a 2007 for $1000 in PA. If anyone wants the link I will send it, it is on another forum
