Hooking up Hard Top?

I just purchased a 2005 hard top. I have a 2000 Sahara. What is needed to hook up the rear windshield wiper/defrost/ and wiper fluid line? I assumed I had the hook up in the jeep but don't see anything. Thanks.

Quadratrec has everything you need. You have to order the wiring harness fit the 2000 and an adapter from the 2000 to 2004/05/06 plug configuration. You may have to chat for part numbers on line.I did for the adapter for a friend. Don't order the 2005 wiring harness because it wont fit your vehicle. All the connectors are different.Your model has a 100 pin connector and my 2005 has about 40 wires.

You HAVE to get the kit for the year of the Jeep. The under dash wiring and connectors are different. 97-02, 03-03 hard top plugs are different. If you cross plug styles, you need to buy the adaptor or there is a thread on jeepforum how to modify the plugs to fit.

Hi, I was wondering if you guys with early model TJs and late model hardtops ever had any fitment problems or problems with airflow and pressure. Also any problems with ac due to the pressure?

I installed a 2006 top on my 99 and then replaced the tailgate with one with vents to stop the pressure issue. There is no fitment problem when using tops on Jeeps from different years.
