I would assume that it would come complete? If it has rear wiper and defrost May need to get appropriate harness if you want them to work.....other than that basically the mounting hardware---which I would think would come with it. If not you can order it from a lot of different places...have even seen some that is for "quick removal". Good Luck!!

....and then while at the hardware pick up some weather seal for between the tub and the top. It's pretty much the same as Pick Up canopy seal tape. Just make certain you apply the sticky side to the top not the tub. You should have the hard top wiring harness tucked someplace around the rear drivers side roll bar. If not, you can buy a new harness from a few different vendors.

You can do that---I was thinking they had a quick release/ no tools required thing. That is why I say to look at the big Q---they have very good pics drawings and instructions-----let's you figure out easier if it will work or if it is what you want....than the shopping begins.

I FINALLY learned my lesson about them after buying way to many parts from them that are shipped only ups AND SHIPPING PRICE IS BASED ON THE COST OF THE PART NOT THE WEIGHT OF THE PART, UNLESS IT IS A BUMPER THAN EVEN MORE IS ADDED!

Use the big Q to find what you want and than go shopping!!
