If you switch tops get all the hardware whether you need to use or not. The tops are interchangeable with the correct soft top surrounds and windows. If you ever sell it on to someone else they will probably want those parts.

Can anyone tell me what parts are needed in this situation?

I purchased a soft top, but I'm obviously missing some parts. I knew this going in, but having trouble looking at the diagrams to see what I do not have.

I have the top, the frame, the windows and surrounds. I know I am missing the 4 thumb screws and the 2 plastic clips for the tailgate bar.

On the frame is obviously a bracket that bolts to something, but what?

Are there other pieces I'm missing?

I hope he is throwin some cash your way too. Hard top more expensive than soft. Especially the non premium 2012.
