Soft top question

When I bought my used 2009 JKU I also got the what I thought was a complete unused soft top with it. Well I installed it today and wanted to know if there should be a strip for the rear window to attach to the tail gate. Everything fits well less the gap above the tail gate. TIA, Mike.

The bottom of your rear window should have a bar across the bottom of it which seals the top of the tailgate with weather stripping. It slots into the two plastic pieces on either side.



Notice at the bottom of the rear window the rubber going across the bottom, that is the bottom of this bar which seals with the tailgate when shut.

Aside: that is not me in the picture, I stole it from project JK.

OK I'm still confused lol. Is this something I should remove from the bottom of the rear hard top window or am I missing a piece?

No it's not part of the hardtop. There are also 2 plastic clips that slide on on each side of the tailgate opening. That's what the bar clips into.
