Post what year the jeep is and what year the top is. The top connectors are different 02-03. You must get the kit for your year jeep and if the top plug is different you need the adaptor or make one.

Be sure to get the harness kit for your year TJ and add an adaptor if you do not have the correct year top. The harness kit includes the switches washer bottle and back washer pump.

You need the harness for a a late model (04) TJ. You can find discount Mopar dealers on line and on Ebay.. Then you need a Jeepasaurus adaptor that will get you from the small plug on your 04 TJ to the big plug on your early model top. The early top has a dome light, and the later top does not. That's why the plug is bigger. And, the hardtop dome light will not work unless you add some custom wiring.
