Soft top replacement help pretty please!!!

I have a 08 JKU, and I need a new soft top, my question is whether I should just buy all new hardware or just get one that fits stock hardware, I also need a new window channel header (MOPAR 68049276AB - MOPAR® Windshield Header Channel Kit for 07-10 Jeep® Wrangler JK Unlimited 4 Door - Quadratec). I don't know if there is a better one or not, also I need a new Tailgate bar.

ALSO I broke one of the plastic pieces above the rear passenger door that you fold the soft top up under. I don't know if the $400 quadratop that fits stock hardware is worth it with all the extra shit I need or the $900+ new top with all new hardware would be a better/easier investment. I don't know what to do, I am very frustrated. I feel like it would be easier in the long run just to buy one with all new hardware, but that is an extra $500+ I could be putting towards something else I.E. a suspension lift. Any advice on what you guys think would be best to do would be much appreciated.
If anyone knows what the part is called that I'm talking about when I say "plastic pieces above the rear passenger door that you fold the soft top up under" would also be much appreciated. This is the top I thought about with stock hardware.

I have a soft top for an 08 you can have. But you pay the postage. I live in Australia.

Check Craigslist in your area. In some areas you can get a soft top with all the hardware fairly cheap. I picked one up for $200. I had to buy the rollbar brackets($60), because they were missing but a great deal. Remember, all JKU tops 2007-2014 should fit your JKU but the year top MUST be the same year as the hardware.
The plastic piece you're talking about is the door surround.

Mopar Soft Top Hardware for Jeep Wrangler Jk Unlimited 4 Door from Morris 4x4
Or you can buy the parts but that can get expensive. I can't imagine shipping from Australia would be cheap either.

No idea how much the postage would be, or how long it would take to get to you. I live in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia if you wish to check. Top is pretty much brand new, has tint on the windows. I have only had it on once. And by the looks of it the previous owner did not put it on. Only use my hard top, 3 kids in the back including a new born. To bloody hot for them with the soft top.

Just checked the shipping price. If you take the slow boat around $250. Express postage is up around the $450. Probably not worth it for you.
