Used soft top parts help?

Hey guys, I am considering a used soft top off CL from a 2010 for my 2012 but don't know squat about how to install one or which parts should come with a used top. What parts should I be looking for to make sure come with the soft top so that it will fit on my 2012? Is there a list somewhere of every part that comes with the OEM top for me to see and check off when I go to check out the used top? TIA!

Tops changed up some but I think the parts are the same.

Top/windows
Bow assm
Header
Door surounds x2
Pivoting brackets x2
Rear tail gate bar
tail gate bar clips x2

Think that's it?

You might also look for straps to hold the back window rolled up and a Velcro strap for when the sun rider is open. Not sure if 2010 had the back window straps or not.

Also look for all the screws and bolts. When I bought my used top I never thought of this until I went to install it. You will need 4 shoulder bolts for the brackets and 4 machine screws to bolt the brackets onto the roll bar. If they arenít there itís not a big deal these can be found at any hardware store, but itís just an extra pain.

Oh and nice clear windows would be nice. I have hours so far into getting the scratches out of my used windows.

If there's anything missing, you can probably find it here (including the velcro straps and rear window straps).

X2 on this link!!

went to put soft top on last week , and couldnt find one of the tailgate bar retainers. Morris has really nice diagrams of the tops parts and prices are low. Got one cheap and with a discount from being a member on here.
