You do not need to buy an entire kit! The frame in the pictures is a OEM top. Any 97-06 frame will fit. Get all the hardware you need with the top
- Door surounds with knobs
- Tailgate bar attached to the bottom of the rear window
- Tailgate bar clips to the left/right of the gate opening
My first question is: When I take off the hard top do I have to have anything between the metal of the windshield and the top, or does the top seal right to the windshield frame? (Photo 1 below)
**The rubber seal stays on top of the windshield
Second question: My Wranglenater has two mounts thats come out of the frame right behind the front seats (photo 2 below) The top in question has two brackets (photo 3 below) that I believe bolt right into the mounts in photo 2. If that is the case which bracket goes to which mount?
** You jeep has the roll bar mounts so it was a softtop or dual top model
If photo 3 were better it would show that the rear of the soft top is on the left of the photo. Also there is only a rear window with the soft top. If this top fit my Jeep how would I identify the top to be able to match windows to it?
** You can purchase side windows (ebay) The will cost 60-100 for both. First you need to determine the year of the top. The side window zipper orientation, colors and patterns changed 97-02, 03-06. 97-02 tops have the female zipper slider attached to the top on the passenger side. 03-06 tops have the slider on the the driver side
