Soft top question

My jeep originally came with a hardtop, and I don't have the little brackets that go on the roll bar. I Purchase a smittybilt soft top from a local guy and I have everything to put it on. Do I need the brackets that mount to my roll bar and if so where do I get them.
Thanks

I got the door surrounds with mine and the piece that goes across the tailgate. Just not sure if I need the roll bar brackets, my brother in law has a factory soft top and it latches into those brackets. Mine being smittybilt not sure if this is required

If you aren't talking about the door surrounds, then I'm not sure what you are talking about....

Well, alright then.
Do these go right behind the driver/pass seats on the back side of the roll bars?
