Just spoke to the Jeep dealer. I'm picking up a 08 top for my 13 and the parts guy confirmed that they are interchangeable.

As far as the fabric goes, I believe they are the same however, If I'm not mistaken the hardware may be slighty different especially the front header piece where it attaches to the windshield. I'm not sure what the cut off year was but I'm pretty sure there is a difference from 2008 to 2013.

With all of the hardware and possibly slight modification of the headed bar all soft tops will fit all years.

The only possible modification is the footman's loop as it was moved slightly in 2009. Some ppl have problems and need to shave the header bar a bit, others don't

That's what it was...I knew there was something with the header that was different.
