do different brands match up?

pasteris71 I had the same issue. It will fit as long as the hardware is the same year as the soft top. There has been 2 changes in hardware did the 2011 and 2012.

It will fit installed correctly. The 2012 is not larger than the 2010. The 2012 window itself is larger, therefore parts are not interchangeable as mentioned previously, but the entire top will fit.

There may be a difference in the way the rear brackets for the window bar work, in which case you should try a 2012 rear soft top bracket.

1 inch space where?

I thought as long as all the hardware is there for the year top, it would fit.

j0nx Doesn't look like anything has changed to me since QT sells tops for 2007-2012 which will fit any of those years. I am looking at a couple of used tops from 07-10 local to me and really would like to know if they will work as well.

Don't know if you've got a 2- or 4-door, but...

Try this:

Mopar Soft Top Hardware for Jeep Wrangler Jk Unlimited 4 Door from Morris 4x4

I'm sure there are other places to get parts (Mopar, for one), but I like the ease of use with the diagram.

Lemme know if it works or not, for future reference.

You mentioned that there were 2-3 changes. Do you know what the changes were and if they are significant enough to adversely affect fitment?

thanks,

I think there has been like 2-3 changes. The jeep is the same so get all the hardware for the year you find, and you will be ok.

Thanks in advance for the input.
