That link is only for the windows and the skin...the skin also isn't sailcloth so i'd pass. But if you go that route you'll need the factory bows, header, door surrounds, tailgate bar and retainer clips. Look at the bestop supertop NX it's a complete kit but it's around $750-$1000 depending on the doors you have.

There's also frameless tops like rampage's frameless but you'll still need the header, surrounds, tailgate bar and clips. I think the rampage sailcloth top is around $400.

You will need all the hardware for a softtop. Check out the for sale section for someone selling a complete soft top, or go the route of a Bestop nx, comes with everything you need. If you look at some of the forum sponsors on here you can get the BestTop trektop nx for around $500.

You might need the rollbar brackets too (if your Jeep doesn't already have them).

Since apparently you do not have any hardware, you shouls look at the Bestop Supertop NX or the frameless Trextop NX. They come with all the hardware necessary.
