Hardtop missing back glass and parts. need help!

I bought my TJ last november and the PO threw in an old hardtop that is missing the back glass, hinges, gas shocks, and I don't actually know what else. I need help on where to get the glass, and what parts I will need, and if I should take it to a shop or can I do it myself?

Here are some pictures of the top.

you can get hinges from quadratec 50 bucks or so, lifts from autozone and a glass from a auto glass shop.....glass is 300.00 I just bought one for my hard top.
You will need to decide if you are including the rear wiper and defroster before you buy glass.

did you have the glass shop install your glass or did you do it yourself?

I'd go to a junk yard. By the time you buy everything new you are over 500 (that's without wiper and motor if you want those) and that is boardering on the price for another used hardtop.

Note you also need the 97-02 side vent louvers.

Installing the glass is easy. Not much to it
