Hard top bracketry

Help! I have a 97 Sahara with factory hard top. The previous owner also had an aftermarket soft top. I think that I am missing some brackets that fit on the fenders at the corners that will hold the glass shut. Am I correct? There are brackets for the soft top in this location, but if left on they do not allow the glass to shut. Any suggestions? Thanks!!

The glass shuts first, then the tailgate closes over it to hold it shut.

Yup, that's it. Nothing fancy. Make sure you remove the soft top brackets from the rear so you don't damage anything trying to close the hatch.

Thanks guys, I think my faulty lift arms are not helping me get a good seal, and also causing a slight rattle. I just wanted to make sure I was not off my rocker.

Thanks again!
