Pic of hard top rear glass strut attachments please?

The PO broke the rear window but never installed the struts that keep it up and it's now starting to bug me but I can't find ANY detailed information about how the lifts attach to the body or the glass. Every schematic I've seen shows it blown out and I'm trying to figure out if I'm missing some parts so a pic of the way it attaches to the glass and the body would be so very much appreciated! I asked about this last summer with no response but I have yet to encounter a local Jeeper to ask since then so I figured I'd try again. Thanks!

AWESOME!!! Thanks so much. Apparently I'm missing the brackets and thru the glass "bolts" so now I'll have to figure out what the part #s are so I can get them from Mopar. Thanks a ton!!!

Ooof. Found the parts I needed and it's going to cost about $160 at discount part suppliers just so my liftgate will stay up by itself and that's assuming the cylinders are still any good. The "ball stud bracket,glass" part that goes through the window stickers for 80 bucks directly from MOPAR for just ONE!

Word of caution to hard top owners: DON'T LOSE ANY PARTS!

I was in the same boat, but found my missing parts on Ebay. Paid around $25 for all 4 of the pieces. I searched through alot of stuff because I didnt know what they were called or part numbers. They are out there so good luck with your search.

Nothing on eBay right now except a knockoff set for $100 and finding hard top parts of any type in a junkyard around here is harder than searching for the Lost Ark of the Covenant while being chased by Nazis (or at least that how I imagine it). But I rarely open the tailgate any way so I'll just keep casually looking and maybe I'll get lucky. At least I now know exactly what I'm looking for.
