Freedom top from 2012 2dr - what years will it fit?

Well, I'm selling my Freedom top off my 2012 2dr. Wrangler Sport - does anyone know for sure what year Wranglers this will fit? Don't want to sell it to someone and find out it doesn't fit!
Thanks for any info.

Well, technically it will fit any JK. However, in 2009 they moved the center footmans loop over some and made it a latching point for the freedom panels. In order for the new top to work on one of the older years, the owner would have to reposition that footmans loop, which would require a bit of drilling and some trimming of the windshield moldings.

OK, thanks, I wondered because in the Quadratec catalog they list the Mopar hardtop as a different model number for the 2007-2008 and for the 2009-2012. That explains it.
As an aside, how about a factory soft top? Similar situation? If I want to pick up someone's factory softop (not likely since I love my Trektop, but I might take one in partial trade) what years will fit my 2012 2dr without any modifications?

For the soft top, any year will work as long as you have all of the hardware for that year top. In 2010, they changed the top to a cable system. So a 2008 soft top won't work with 2011 door surrounds, etc.

Good info - thanks. I had a guy wanted to give me a 2008 softop and buy my 2012 hard top, but it doesn't sound like such a good idea.
