Needing help wiring hardtop

I have a 2001 Jeep Wrangler Sport that is already wired for the hardtop. My hardtop is from a 2004 without the vents. I have the plug that plugs into the top from the newer jeep also. Just wanting to see if I can cut off my old plug and wire this one to work? Thanks

Probably with the help of a wiring diagram. You can check them out for both years out of the FSM here: Jeep Knowledge Base

Can cut an splice or can make a small adapter to go from the jeep 10 wire plug to the hardtop 6 wire plug

Go to u pull it and get the 6 wire plug from under the driver power seat of a dodge Durango cut off a few inches of wire on each end of plug cause that is the large guage you need for the defroster power and ground

The get the 10 plug you need from under the hood near the firewall of a dodge neon or pt cruiser

The just swap the larger wires into the 10 pin connector solder the 5 used wires from the 6 pin to the 10 pin and plug in tour adapter

Ignore the dome light wires if you have them in your jeep body side 10 pin as the newer tips don't use a dome light

Also since neither your tailgating or your hardtop have vents the doors will be pushed back a little by the air inside the cab when closing with the windows up
