Question Sun Bonnet, Wind Screen, Tonneau Cover

I am a Jeep Forum Newbie, but I have been a Jeep owner since 1981. My question to you is this. I am in the process of buying an original 97 Jeep Sun Bonnet, Wind Screen, and Tonneau Cover from someone to put on my 98 Wrangler Sport, that came with the hard top and soft top package. Are they compatible? They tell me that the Sun Bonnet does not have a windshield hearder and never did. Can anyone tell me what kind of windshielheader I need to make this fit and where I can get one? I know on my old 79 CJ & 87 Wrangler there was a two piece channel that went on and they tell me it is not like that. What else is there? I am trying to do this over the phone wtih them and save myself a trip. It's not working so far. Can someone help me out. Thanks

Find the brand of the cover, most likely the will sell the header seperate. the only differece between 97 & 98 is a channel for the side windows. When I bought my used Jeep it came with a bikini top, and tought the header was missing, tunrs out they had it screwed right unto the windshield header. Good luck

thanks for your reply juan, as i said, it is a factory jeep top, from a 97. my 98 has the factory windshield header with the 2 clips. when i bought the after market top "best top", i just used my old one and put it on the new one. however, this 97 top sounds like it uses a different type of header.
