change in tops

Anyone know what years the soft tops are interchangeable? Needing a new one and want to know what years will work with mine. Thanks.

i believe that 97-02 tops are the same and then 03-present are the same. i don't know what changes took place, but that's my understanding. maybe someone else can pipe up and answer what change happened there.

I think the 02+ are sailcloth tops from the factory, but other than that I think the hardware is the same and should swap over?

I think the 03+ front latches are smaller...so an 03+ top would work on the 97-02's, but a 97-02 top wont work on the 03+ unless you grind down the latch. Or I may have it backwards, but I know it's somethin like that.
