the channels are there... i see them in your photo... all TJ's have them.. it was YJ's that the channels bolt on..

buy your duster cover.

you may need the tailgate bar if you have a hard top, but if you have a soft top you can use the bar from it..

Unless he means the channels that mount to the roll bar where a soft top normally latches the side windows and side top part?

Those parts mount to the roll bar, and run along the top and side of the door. They would need to be removed if you were to put the hard top back on.

All TJ's have the channels as part of the body. The only other channel that I've ever had to buy was the windshield channel bolt on to mount a bikini top.

The info above is all correct - TJs and JKs have a built in channel for installing the plastic canards (wings) on soft tops and Dusters and whatnot.

Installation is very easy, and fairly obvious. Unless you read the installation guide, which in this case can make it more complicated.

Your missing the channels that the tailgate bar mounts into...

It also has a place on the lower aspect that some more of those plastic "canards" mount into.

Should have one on either side of the tailgate. I have no clue where to procure some of those.

There are small metal clips that go on the flat spot to either side of the tailgate. On soft tops, it holds the tailgate bar. On Dusters, there's a plastic wing that slips into it (transparent part of the drawing above).

"Tailgate Bar mounting brackets" is (I think) the official term. You can buy direct from us as a replacement part 800-845-3567. Quad and a few others are now stocking replacement parts - and they'll be quicker and probably cheaper.
