Soft Top

Hey everyone I have a question. My 2008 Wrangler 2-door is a hard top. I'm thinking about buying a soft top for the spring/summer. I was gonna wait, but after taking everything off yesterday and having to put everything back on because naturally today's weather is garbage, I'm strongly considering the soft top.

My question is: Do I have to buy a separate installation kit, or do I just buy a soft top?

Just the soft top. There are a lot of nice options out there. I purposely bought the hardtop only when I ordered my 2012. I had a OEM softie on my 2009 and I never used it. I did not like the design or style.
Just got a Trektop NX and it's much more to my liking.

Buy the soft top and all the hardware that comes with it. Any model year OEM JK soft top will work, provided you have all the necessary hardware for that particular top.

Or you can buy an aftermarket top.

Craigslist. You should do it. I bought a hard top last summer as my winter top and I am just itching to get it off
