So I bought an 08 4 door a couple weeks ago that came with a soft and hard top, the hard top was installed and they simply gave me the soft top with it. I was on vacation for a week and haven't been able to play with it. Yesterday I took the doors and hard top off. When I tried to put the soft top on I found that I'm missing the screws that attach the "swing arms" at the rear to the roll cage. Simple enough, I'm using some pins right now until I can get back to the dealer to ask for them. Never having done this before something simply isn't adding up... there are gaps all over the place where the soft top should be held to something that I'm apparently missing. I looked at another 4 door Wrangler today who had a plastic piece surrounding his doors where the soft top appears to connect (lay in a channel, something). I don't have whatever that piece is but don't know what I'm talking about totally either. Can someone tell me exactly what it is that I'm missing? See pics to see what I'm talking about, there is an open space between the top of both doors and the back of the rear door.
Also, the soft top doesn't have anything to attach to under the rear plastic window. We're expecting rain tomorrow and the dealer that I bought this from is an hour away... bummer. Any help you can provide is appreciated.
