Please don't give people incorrect information. To fit an 07 soft top on a 11+ JK you must either modify the center notch on the soft top header bar or buy a new header. Check all the previous posts on the subject or ask any of us that have this setup. Can you latch it down w/out modifying or changing it? Yes. But it will bow up in the middle, leak like crazy, you'll have tons more wind noise, and you'll warp the plastic header which is why they changed all the new headers to metal to stop the warping issue.
