|jadmt||I have a 2013 jku and a 2013 premium soft top and the roll bar bracket has torx screws holding it in place (look on your roll bar and you will see holes with threads) and there are bolts holding the soft top to the bracket itself.|

|Peter T||Ok just left dealer. Parts will be in tomorrow. Now the question. Anyone with a 2013. The dealer has no screws showing for the bracket to roll bar or bracket to soft top. The computer shows screws and a screws with a shoulder that stops at 2012. Does not show what is on the 2013.|

So two things now that your issue is almost cleared up.
1. Just a heads up, the first time you put the soft top on, you'll want to rip your hair out. The top is REALLY tight like I can't exaggerate that anymore. Just be patient and after a while it'll go on really easily.
2. Maybe contact the seller again and give him back the roll bar grab handles? I don't think he knew that they come with the Jeep since they are hidden among the hardware for the soft top. Just a thought, if I was in your position I would return them.
Happy Canada Day!

|lolpetewtf||Yes but I did not want the headache of figuring out what parts were missing. I was talking to this guy on CL and he said it was all there because I was going to buy used originally. Then he emailed me back telling me its missing something but he can't remember what it was. I was like f that, buying new.|

|lolpetewtf||Exactly the reason I bought new|

|Peter T||Thanks for the help. I guess it's off to the dealer for left and right brackets and 8 screws. 4 per side. Oh wait everything closed today. I guess I have a project for tomorrow.|

Yes, you are likely missing the bracket that attached to the roll bar that the bracket you have pictured hangs on. Here is a picture of the bracket on the drivers side taken from the area of the driver side back seat.
EDIT: Orientation of the picture is off for some reason, thumb should be on the right side of picture.

I took this picture of the anchor point for the top to roll bar. There must be a missing bracket and screws.

New Soft Top
I just went out and bought a soft top from a 2 week old 4 door wrangler. The guy I bought it from had everything sitting in his office. The 2 boxes where not open yet and the orange sticker was still warped around the soft top. He said everything was there that he knew of. He had dealer disconnect and leave it in the back of his jeep. I got home and opened the boxes and found he had the roll bar grab handles in the boxes. The only thing I didn't find was a way to hook it to the roll bar. Anyone have a parts list that I may be missing. There was a bag with the door surrounds 4 long 2 short hand bolts for the surrounds. I think I am missing something to anchor to roll bar.
