OEM Soft top - pre-purchase questions

When I bought my 2012 JKUR last month, the dual top group was on my wish list, but there just weren't any available in my area, so I had to go with just a hardtop instead. I have been watching Craigslist for a few weeks and finally found a soft top for sale for what I consider a good price. And before I jump on it, I'd like to ask the experts here what I should watch out for.

This particular soft top came with a 2007 JKU that did have the dual top group. The owner said he took it out of the back of the Jeep and put it in his shop's attic and it's been there ever since. The windows are all still in the factory boxes.

Questions:
1) Will there be any problem installing this 2007 JKU top on my 2012?
2) Aside from the top itself and the windows, what hardware should be present with the top? Do the side rails and side bow retainer clips come with the top, or are they already on my Jeep under the hard top?
3) With the back seat folded flat, will the top and window boxes all fit inside my JKU for transportation home?

The top is about 350 miles away, so if I'm going to make that drive to pick it up I'd like to make sure ahead of time that it's exactly what I want and has everything I'll need to use it. So thanks in advance for any help you all can provide!

350 miles?? That is quite the haul man. He must be giving this thing away to entice you to drive that far. Have a good road trip.

I would check out the Bestop NX before you make that drive.
