Geeezuz, how many tops are there? Lots. Go to and you'll see. Look at the Bestop Sailcloth tops...very nice. Go to too.

yes and no. The zippers are backwards I believe. But if your replacing the whole thing it won't really matter anyway. Someone care to comfirm this for me?

An 06 soft top will fit on an 01 Jeep. There may be slight changes in the hardware, but otherwise you should be fine, especially if you're getting all the hardware.

I had an 06 softie (stock) that I put on my 2000. Fit like a glove. I used the original door surrounds too.

Most of the change happened from 02 to 03 where the window latches got narrower (IIRC).

Thanks to everyone for the quick replies. I contacted the seller, and he doesn't have the windows. It's just the top - brand new never used. No hardware or windows. Who knows how this came to be, but I confirmed with Bestop (thanks Jim), that indeed the zippers are backwards and will not work with my windows. Oh well, better luck next time. Thanks again.
