Will it fit?

Will a 2009 4door soft top with hardware, transfer over to a 2012 4 door jk?

I have a way go get a good deal on a 2009 soft top with hardware.
I currently have a 2012 with hardtop. I need to know if this will fit

Thanks.

I'm just guessing, but I'd bet:

There's a little bit of a list of all the hardware that you need to make sure comes with the soft top to make sure that it will work.

I believe there's also a difference in window size somewhere along the line. So the windows on the 2009 will be smaller than the windows on a 2013 (at least) soft top.

Good luck, whatever you decide to do!

I read up that the footmans loop will have to be removed and I will have to cut/shave my header bar.

Is the header bar part of the Soft top, or part of the Jeep?
