Will an 08 soft top fit a 13?
 
found a guy selling a complete soft top from his 08 JKU for 300.00. would it fit on a 2013 JKU?

Thanks

If ALL the pieces are included, then yes.

However, a word of note...

The center footman loop on the 2008 is more toward the center where the 2013 is offset toward the driver side just a bit. In order for the header panel to seal properly, you will need to either remove the center footman loop until you need it again (not ideal since we all lose parts), or buy the correct header panel for your year.

I have a late 2009 and have this issue with the header panel on my soft top, which came from a 2008.

Great! Thanks for the info. He said everything is there, he sold the jeep with the hard top and has had the soft top in storage for a while.
Ill go check it out

You may need to order the roll bar brackets. There is a high likelihood that the seller left those on his Jeep. Ask about them, though. The seller may be one of the rare few that removed them.
