missing windows??

I bought a used 2003 Jeep Wrangler Sahara in January from Carmax. It had the hardtop on, so I wanted to see the soft top, too. The dealer said it was a dual top. We open the soft top, and the back and side rear windows aren't there!! The dealer says this Jeep came that way (calling it a Bikini Top)!! I found out I could get a kit for $700 from Jeep that included the windows and a "door surround" that fits around the full doors that I have.

Every "bikini top" I have seen looks nothing like what I have.

I suspect the original owner has the windows and door surround thingy in his garage somewhere and forgot to include it when he sold it to Carmax...

Any thoughts? Anyone know where I can get the part(s) I need cheap?

Thanks for your help!!

The windows for the soft top for the dual top as well as the surounds came in seperate boxes so they were sold or lost. You can buy surounds and window.

People are always selling surounds. There are always plenty on ebay and go to the for sale sections of the various Jeep forums as well as craigslist. The normal price is around 100 but you can find them cheaper.

The same sources go for windows. You must get side windows from a 03-06. The orientation of the zippers changed from 97-02. The rear windows are the same. Some sellers list windows that fir 97-06. That is incorrect. In addition to the zipper, the colors and fabric changed 97-02, 03-06. The three windows will cost 200-300.

Indosurf is selling door surrounds now on the forum.....

FWIW, Same thing happened to us with the JK, but we figured out the day after we bought it that we were missing a lot of vital parts. Dealer ponied up for brand new replacements... After some gentle persuasion. They wanted to cheap out and get ebay stuff, but lucky for us there weren't any of the items we needed on ebay...
