Where is the best place to get soft top parts?

The CFO bought a 2006 Wrangler Unlimited, dual top.

I spent half the day yesterday fabricating a hard top hoist in the garage ( IT WORKS! ), and after we got the jeep outside, we went after what we thought was just a bikini top. Low and behold a full soft top and no clue as to how to set it up, other than we knew something was missing.

Went for a drive to a dealership and found another matching soft top as ours to see what it is supposed to look like and see what parts we are missing. The side windows, rear window, and the upper door frames/seal (briefly thought about putting on my Ninja outfit and going shopping around midnight).

Where is the best place to get the parts we are missing?

Yep. I agree Bestop is your place.
Whenever the pressure of our complex city life thins my blood and numbs my brain, I seek relief in the trail; and when I hear the coyote wailing to the yellow dawn, my cares fall from me - I am happy

When I bought my TJ a month ago it had a ragedy soft-top. The dealership gave me a brochure for an outfit called "Morris 4x4 Center"

Jeep Parts, Jeep Accessories, and Jeep Soft Tops from The Jeep Parts Specialists | Morris 4x4 Center
Has FULL soft-tops for $299. Also has hardware, etc.
I ended up getting a hard-top off craigslist and will probably just chunk the old soft-top.
But I am considering getting another soft top someday.....otherwise I would give you my hardware.
Give Morris a shot.....seems reasonable.

The only place I could find the door surrounds/shrouds/window frames are on E-bay.

The windows are everywhere, just need to shop. At least I now know the color (some confusion there between the Black Denim and Black Diamond).

I'll be glad when I can get this wife/jeep project finished so I can get back to my truck and the rest of the honey-do list.

Thanks for the replies.

Door surounds are frequently for sale. Watch the for sale section here and the other Jeep forums. Normal price is around 100.00

The Unlimited was 04-06 so the only material is Black Diamond

- Black Denim was 97-02. It is more gray that Black Diamond.

- Black Diamond was 03-06 If you look closely, the pattern has raised diamond shapes.

- The side window zippers male/female orientation changed 02-03. They are not interchangeable. 97-02, on the passenger side the female slider is on the top and on the driver's side, the slider is on the window. 03-06, they switched orientation.

A good source for used parts is:
