Question for Soft Top experts

I have a 2000 TJ Sport, will a Black Diamond / Sailcloth top from Bestop fit? Supposedly it's for 2003-2006 TJ's - but is there really any difference or is that just to match the OEM? I've been reading a lot on here about Softtops before I pull the trigger and I'm really liking the color of the Black Diamond better.

I had a 03-06 soft top that I was selling and a guy with a 02 tj wanted it so I called bestop and they told me that yes it will fit but it will be slightly looser than normal because in 03 and up they thickened the roll bar padding. So he bought it anyway and haven't heard anything back I guess it worked just fine for him.

Doubt it. There were some minor changes between the years, mostly with the header bar.

They DO work and fit properly…..but only when it's the top AND hardware you're buying new. You can put an 03 top on an 02 but like wavebacktothetj said it'll be loose.
