|mmb||Thanks! Yes I have the dual top and just removed the hardtop last weekend. Now I need to go check to make sure the others are in place, and I'll put the bolts back in as AZikas86 suggests to hold them. I'm glad I found it, and thanks everyone for your help. I wonder why jeep includes those slots for the bolts in the back, if in fact it seems to make more sense to put them back, especially as these things slide off.|

The better question is do you have a hard top , if so then don't lose those
If not that means your jeep came with a hardtop and they switch it out or took it before you bought it

|AZikas86||I put the hard top bolts back in to make sure they dont slide out like last summer.|

I'm brand new and don't even have my Jeep yet, but I can't help thinking that the part looks like something off the seatbelt setup. Either the locking mechanism or one of the other parts. Maybe it was dropped inside the Jeep by accident? (I HATE extra parts too, drives me nuts!)
Hope someone else has a better guess...

|Big Vic||Now I know why, I have a soft top.|

|Big Vic||I don't recognize that part. Not sure at all.|

Backer nut for the bolts that hold the hard top down. Fits into the lip at top of tub
Mine always fall out when I switch from hard to soft top

|AMilton||That is what the bolt screws into to hold the hard top down, It slides into the channel on the side of the tub.|

Please help in identifying a loose part found inside my new JK
This is my first post as I just got a new 2door, but have enjoyed researching many things here and finding great information on various topics. Thank you all.
I just got my Jeep a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday I put down the soft top for the first time and was later struggling for an hour to latch the back seat after putting a new QT cargo mat (BTW, I finally gave up and pulled it back out). But my request is because this morning I found the part shown in the attached pics on the passenger side floor. Can anybody please help me recognize what this is?
Thanks in advance for any help!
