TJ rear hardtop window

i just got a hardtop, it is cracked and is missing the rear window (still got a deal) my question is:

is there a difference between the 97-02 window and the 03-06 window? i'm trying to source a window and just wanted to know if there is a difference. thanks all...

As far as i know the only difference in the two is the venting. Both versions fit all years the exact same so i would think theyd be the same.

Unless it was for an LJ tho (plus the vents), that would be the only difference vs TJ.

True but i would think the rear would still be the same. Just the sides being longer. But im just thinking out loud..

Hmmm... Did a search and if you scroll down this place has a 97-02 rear glass and 03-06 glass. Maybe im wrong.
OP do you know what year your hardtop is? If not does it have vents on it or no vents?

The only thing I can say is that there must of been was a production change after 2002. Its possible it "may" still fit but if there calling for specifics then go whats called for. I'm at a loss for what those changes are tho. Decided to email that company and ask what is the difference since they must know (I would hope). Once I get a reply, I'll post it here.
