Thanks, I've placed the order. I hope I would get it before the weekend

Neil F. You need the 03-06. The roll bar padding on the 03+ is thicker. The 03 brackets stick further out towards the rear about an inch to get past the padding.

They ship out ups so, if they have them, I will give you their number and you can pay them and they will ship them out to you. I will take them off if it will save you a couple of bucks.

Thanks for your help, but you don't have to. I can buy them on ebay, but just don't know if I should get 97-02 or 03-06.

Ooops! Thanks for setting us straight!

jpoutlaw You also need the brackets that connect to the roll bar but those are easy to come by if they aren't included. I was doing this same exact thing this spring and was attempting to figure out all the necessary parts.

Also check to ensure there's a rear window channel and brackets.....

Soft top

Hi,
I hope someone could help me. I have a jeep TJ with a hardtop and full doors. I want to buy a used soft top on craigslist. Most of the sellers are saying that all hardware is included, but really I don't know what kind of hardware I need. I think I need a frame and door surrounds. Do I need something to attach the soft top to the windshield?

What else could I need?

I'd appreciate any help

Also.. I found a factory soft top. Is it better or worst than Bestop?
