97 - 02 & 03 - 06 Soft Top Difference?

I am looking to get a new soft top and have found some used that are from 03-06. Wondering what the difference is and if it would fit on my 97?

I went through that research last year for my 98. Some say they will fit and others say they don't. The header is definitely different. I've read several places and have been told numerous times by Bestop, etc., that there are also very subtle dimensional differences regarding the angles of the front door at the windshield and measurements at the door closure that prevent proper alignment. The rear area is also reportedly 1" longer from the door surround to rear corner. Never put a tape measure and angle finder to it but there is a difference for some reason.
