I have a 2005 on my 2001. No need to worry about the vents, the only time you will notice is when you have the heat/blower up high..you will get a whistling noise. Just crack the window a tad..problem solved.
As far as the wiring is concerned...use the search feature, you will find the answer. If not, I can send you what you need from my computer at home (I am at work right now).

|BeerMan||OH, and mine didn't originally have a hard top so I had no wiring to compare it to...|

|BeerMan||I have an 01 Sahara with a hard top from a newer TJ (no vents). Works fine. Never had my back glass pop up or anything...yet I have my tub lined and don't have carpet etc...|

|06GoldenEagle||Jeep is hardly airtight so if anything his 97 may pop the back window open now and then if the windows are closed when he shuts the doors. I doubt this though|

I have got it the other way around.
(05 jeep with 00 top)

It will work the difference is you won't have a vent to relieve the pressure when you close your doors
97-02 vents behind side window
03-up moved vent to tailgate
I don't know about the plug I don't have a connection in my jeep

|06GoldenEagle||It fits fine, the connection at the back for the defrost and wiper is different. 03 has the 6pin plug, 97 has a 12pin plug. You can swap to the newer plug as long as u can get one and then put the correct 6 wires from that 12pin plug into the correct locations on the newer plug|

|LilYeller||Sorry to hear about things like this, why cant people just leave other peoples stuff alone? As for the top, if the top is for a TJ and not for an LJ (long wheel base) then it will fit. Cant attest to the wiring but it will certaintly fit.|

Hard top question 2003 on a 1997
I have a 1997 Jeep TJ..with hard top. It was recently vandalized and all the windows were smashed...including the hard top.
I have someone who has a 2003 hard top for sale, it may be cheaper then having the windows replaced....
Will it fit?
I have found things like NO, Yes....Yes but the wiring connection is different, and there is no vents and mine has them. I hear they have connection converters for the tops too.
I'm not sure which route to go.
If there is connection converters where would I find them.
