Yes...make sure you extend them all the way. This means flatten them out by pulling the latch rearward and pushing the connection hook forward.

N3M0 I had a 2011 and my friend has a 2007, I sold my 2011 for a 2012 JKU (the 2011 was a 2dr) when my wife and I had a baby. My 2011 soft top fits PERFECTLY on his 2007. I'm not trying to discredit what your saying Joshua, but if it's just the footmans loop that's giving you the problem, I would just fix it, but that's just me

N3M0 the footmans loop can be removed i do believe. just take it off, or do what dprimm did and grind down the header.

I had the same issue with a 2008 top on my 2012 JK (2dr). I used a grinding wheel and ground the header in that spot just enough to clear the bracket, fixed it right up. I do have an issue with excessive wind noise, but no leakes. I have been told that some of the early headers had a design flaw that caused excessive wind noise and a new header will resolve that issue.

I'd like to know if a 2007 will fit a 2012 (both are 4 door). Thanks!!
The dealer just told me no... after i bought one on CL and installed this weekend... The middle bracket for the freedom top interferes with the header seating fully...

So thats my story...

joshuapchase OK... not to jump in here but wanted to share what I just found out... I have a 2012 Altitude/Sahara... bought a 2007 soft top off CL installed flawless but couldn't get the front to settle correctly... just got back from the dealer looking at it and the older top doesn't fit correctly... so just a heads up... anyone interested in a 2007 Soft Top? All parts included!!!!

I just bought a used 2007 and installed it
Rather easily... However I'm not sure if it's fitting right... The front part that latches doesn't seem to sit down all the way... It's raised on mine about 3/4 of an inch in the middle...

So I'm confused if its really supposed to fit!

Firemangully Good to know, thanks!
