Yes. A lot.
It's a whole new top, and new door surrounds.
And, much as I love selling stuff to you and your friends, probably not worth it. Lots of us have lived with the plastic door tabs for years, and survived to tell the tale.
The tops are interchangeable: you can put a 2008 top on a 2011, and visa-versa. The door surrounds and all hardware need to go with the top.
You have two options for getting this style of top: a 2010/11 model from Jeep/Mopar; or a Supertop NX, which is our new factory style top.
You can NOT retrofit a cable into an older top. The cables are sewn in to a special pocket. The "rain gutters" on the top are different, and the door surrounds are different.
