2007 OEM Soft Top for 2013 Wrangler?

From what I can gather by reading other threads Jeep made some minor modifications to the soft tops after 2009. How difficult would it be to retrofit a 2007 OEM top onto my 2013? Are there some additional parts I need to purchase and if so what are they? If anyone has done this or knows of an online video or other resource that I could check out which specifies exactly how to do this and how complicated it is I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

You would need all of the hardware. It will work. You cannot mix soft top parts from those years, but, the entire package will fit no problem.

You will need:
Softtop with all the frame, and the frame ends with screws intact
Brackets that mount to the sport cage, and the screws for those. There is a flap that can be opened (velcro) that covers the mounting holes for the bracket.
The door surrounds. They are one piece for 2 door and 3 piece for 4 door, each side.
You will need the knurled head mounting bolts for the door surrounds. 2 for a 2 door, 3 for a 4 door, each side.
The side window. One for each side.
The rear window, the tailgate bar, and the brackets for the tub the tailgate bar mounts into.

If you have all of these pieces from the '07, it will mount to the '13.

I currently have my 07 top on my 13 jeep .. I can confirm that if you have all the hardware from the 07 , it will fit no problem .. I just had to remove the middle latch bar right above the rear view mirror .. If you don't remove it , the top will not sit all the way down and there will be an air gap there

Jeep 2007, if you remove that middle latch bar, I assume that will affect the freedom hard top...any other solution?

You can cut the header bar. I think the loop is only held on by one torx bolt, so i don't see it being much effort to put back on when you switch tops.
