I sold my hardtop to a guy with a 2011 jeep. Mine is a 2010 and there was not a single problem with it fitting.
Im not quite sure what you mean by the "latch", however there shouldn't be a problem. The body of the Jk hasn't changed since 2007. I have a 2010 jk and I am currently running a 2008 soft top. The way the hardtop fits shouldn't be any different.
So it's been, and shall be weighed: though many are born, few are "made". Faithful Always, they shall remain, dogs to loose when war is waged.
