The above answers may be a bit vague. Let me clear that up.

No.

cheap and soft top windows should not be used in the same sentence.

If you are replacing just the windows, you will need to look for 97-02 because
the zipper on your drivers side rear window panel changed.
97-02 Zipper head stays attached to window panel when removed.
03-06 Zipper head stays attached to the softtop.
There are also some slight material pattern/color differences.

Having said that, I have mix and matched rear windows.
This is where it gets confusing
I have a 97 with a 03-06 softtop and 97-02 windows.
An upholstery shop was able to swap the zipper on your drivers side rear window panel very cheaply (so I assume easily) and I don't even notice the difference with the material/color.

However it would be far more difficult (expensive) swapping zippers to make a 03-06 rear window panel fit a 97-02 softtop because the zipper that needs changing is attached to the softtop.
