Yep, just make sure you get all the parts you need for a soft top. Door surrounds and bolts, tailgate bar and brackets and the windows to go with it.

Sweet deal you got there! I just got an '04 top for my '01 a few weeks ago... It's very nice, thanks John!

InfernoGirl, is your 04 top kind of loose on your 01? I have an 04 on my 02 with all hardware swapped over, including the brackets that hang off of the B pillar and my top isn't as tight as I'd like and it looks like crap

Try going back to the original brackets on the roll bar. I used my originals and no it isn't loose, it is louder than my original top, but looseness isn't the reason for it. I'll try to put up a pic after while. The brackets changed in 03 to accommodate the larger roll bar padding, since your pads are smaller you don't need the extra room. Maybe that will help take up some of the slack.

It was actually a lot looser before I switched to the 04 brackets. I have a feeling the PO didn't install the top right onto the hardware, going to check that out next

So I got my top today. I love it. It matches the interior a lot better than the black one and it has tinted side and back windows. Woohoo. It's in perfect shape. Also it fits a lot tighter than the old. Don't know why though...
