soft top question

Just bought a 93 wrangler,
and all it has is a hard top, and i want to get a soft top
i plan on buying a replacement skin from 4wd, but i need the hardware.
other that the actual frame are there any other parts i need to make sure i get?
i know my lj had door surrounds, do i need them for a yj? will my lj ones fit?
does a yj soft top just have clamps like a tj or do i need a winsheild channel?
other question is will a 1989 frame fit on my 93 with the family rollbar?

It would be much easier to just buy a complete soft top kit with hardware... Buying in pieces would cost more and not being certain of all the parts and hardware, it would be quite frustrating.

To answer your questions: 87-95 take the same top, just make sure you get one that works with your full doors and the family roll bar. The YJ uses a channel above the w/s, and around the rear tub. The door channel is part of the frame for the soft top. You will also need all the misc hardware.

Supertop nx is what I run all the hardware and I got the tinted windows also but it took about an hour really easy.
