Buying a Soft Top

Just bought a 2003 wrangler Sahara with a hard top. The previous owner showed me the soft top inside and I did not bother checking it out. When i brought the jeep home and took the soft top out of the back seat it only had the two rear windows the back window the tailgate bar and the door surround. So, i was missing the Top. I called the owner back and then he lets me know that the top is missing.

Now i ve been looking - ebay, amazon and googling it but can't seem to find just the Top and the hardware to install. Can some one please tell me where can i buy the top skin and the hardware that would enable me to install the soft top.

Also what brands are out there and which one is considered the best generally among jeep owners?

- Before buying anything, make sure the windows are OEM vs another brand.

- You are not mentioning if you have the frame. I assume not. Used is really the only way to get the entire frame assembly. They run around 100 used.

- If the windows are OEM and are buying the top, the zipper orientation differes 97-02, 03-06. Make sure what year the windows are from. 97-02, one zipper pull is on the window, and one is on the top. 03-06, both sliders are on the top. There will not be any on the windows.
