Soft top compatibility, '07, '08 and '09

We've got the hard top on our '09 and I'm considering buying a soft top for the summer months. Did some forum searching but didn't find an answer to this.

Does anyone know if the soft top from an '07 or '08 would install on the '09? I seem to remember reading postings about changes to the soft top, dealing with leaking, didn't know if that involved changes to the mounting etc.

Thanks!

Thought I'd bump this up just in case someone has some insight. I have an opportunity to buy a factory 2008 soft top but want to be sure it will fit. Searched around other places on the web and haven't found anything conclusive.

Any input is greatly appreciated

You could ask the dealer for the part number on a replacement for an 08 and the part number for the purchase of an 09 top. If the part number is the same that would be a dead give-away clue. Maybe the duke could give us some wisdom on this?

Great idea. The numbers did change but according to the parts guy that doesn't necessarily mean there were changes. Seems that from one year to the next they may change part numbers.

Thanks, appreciate the info... that's good to know. Actually have my eye on an '08 right now, just waiting on the seller to respond.

I believe that there are a few tops out there available from the dealer. I believe there may be two different Mopar units and a Bestop one. I've got a Mopar, non-dual top package soft top from an 08.

How far upstate are you?

07-09 should be the same, but you might want to make a quick call to our customer support people to make sure - 800-845-3567. They keep much better track of small details than I do.

Bestop makes the factory Mopar stuff, too.

Should be fine. 1997-06 (TJ's) were all the same.
