forgedoffroad.com I've had a couple customers with 2010s that had the "clip and tuck" which I call the "swear and suck (your finger after you dang near rip off the nail on those stupid clips)"

Actually, the 09 is the same as 07-08 with the clip in style. Cable style started in 2010.

panthermark Also, the premium (twill) tops became availble in 2013

bgaribay Thanks for all of the advice! I am going to wait and buy a 2011+ soft top. Why cut corners.....I want the larger back window.

forgedoffroad.com Beyond making sure all the parts are there, go put your eyes on a pre-2011 top and a 2011+ top. The tops on the pre-11 JKs have significantly smaller back windows. They're only the width of the tailgate, while the '11+ have an extra couple inches on each side, which helps substantially when you're wheeling at the mall.

Make sure all the parts are there. A lot of times people pull the top, but forget to pull the brackets off the roll bar. Without those you won't be able to attach it to the Jeep.

Shyer Yes it will work. I found one off a 2009 with the hardware and it fit my 2012 fine. Just make sure all the hardware is there and you are good to go.

nwbronco As longs as all of the hardware is there. ALL of it. You'll have no problems. The only way I have seen all the parts is being the one removing it from the seller's vehicle. I know on no one else that has gotten all the parts.

Will a 4 door 2009 jeep soft top fit a 2013 4 door?

Seller has all of the hardware. Want to see if anybody has any advice or experience with soft tops. Thanks.
