What soft top do I have?

First off new Jeep owner here and want to say hello to everyone out there
I can't figure out what kind of top is on my 06 Golden Eagle. It seems to have factory hardware. Can't find any markings or tags anywhere on the windows or skin. I've read factory tops will have Mopar on the window, etc. but I can't see anything. Any ideas? How can I tell?

Factory. It will have a Chrysler symbol embossed on the clear part of the windows somewhere.

Looks like it could be a factory top with aftermarket tinted windows installed. A lot of times the top is good and people want tinted back windows.

The solvay draka was on mine when I purchased my jeep. Do not make the mistake I did, I purchased tinted best top windows thinking it would fit and no luck... Ended up having to purchase a whole new best top with tinted windows. So now I have a set of windows for replacements...good luck..

I'd like to know who manufactured my soft top also.

Where did you get the info to tell you it's a factory Mopar top?
I would have thought it would have the Chrysler logo - every other little part does.

As far as I can make out, the front windows on my TJ have...

SOLVAY DRAKA INC
(squiggly line) 2325
DO NOT RUB DRY
WASH WITH WATER SOAKED CLOTH
5JHIISX9AG
306639840

The two underlined characters after 5JH could be 11 or II (‘eye eye’)

I’m guessing Solvay Draka made the plastic windows for a soft top manufacturer. They may have even supplied plastic window panels to several soft-top manufacturers.

Pretty sure it's not a Bestop. I have a Bestop soft-top on another vehicle and it has 'Bestop' embossed on the window panels.
But I have replaced the rear windows with Bestop tinted windows and they fitted with no problems.

I've sent a query to Solvay Draka which appears to be a multi-national plastics company. Looks like my query didn't even register on their radar.

Bestop does but there are other manufactuers that make fabric that fits the OEM frame.
