Tinted Window Kit for Factory Soft Top

I'm looking to get a tinted window kit for my factory soft top. A buddy of mine recommended Bestop but it appears their window kits have molded tooth zippers instead of the nylon coil zippers I need. See attached picture for clarification. The rear window is actually a nylon coil zipper as well but set up so that its "invisible" also on the link below. Has anyone else found a solution to this problem that does not involve buying a whole new soft top so that I can get tinted windows? As far as I'm aware the soft top is as old as the jeep (98) but has never been used before me as they were in pristine conditions when I bought the jeep in august 2012. This is the first full season of use. It was on for about 2 months last season after I bought the jeep. Someone please let me know about the zippers/tinted window kits. Thanks for the help!

Bestop makes the factory top. Their window zippers are the same as the OEM supplied top

I was under that impression but after doing a little bit of research I have found that the zippers do not match and I want to make sure that is actually correct before I spend $230. I have attached some pics of my soft top and the zippers.

The first link is for Morris 4x4 where it states that the zippers are heavy duty molded tooth zippers.

The second link is for bestop's website. if you click on the pictures button then look at the first picture it shows what it looks like which doesn't match what is on my soft top.

thoughts? thanks again.
