Will a 07 soft top fit a 13 jku?
 
I can get a good deal on a 07 soft top and I just want to make sure it will fit a 13 jku?

Yes if all the hardware and door surrounds are included

I could be wrong, but it was my understanding that from '11 up they changed the way the clamps attach to the windshield header. I know the hardtops aren't 100% plug and play, but I don't know for sure about the soft tops.

Just sold a soft top off my 07 to someone with a 13. No problem with fit at all. If you don't have the door surrounds that match the top it will be an issue.

Is there a bracket that has to be mounted on the roll bar on both sides in the back so that the arms can attach to it?

Yes. If yours didn't come standard with a soft top, you will need the roll bar brackets, tailgate bar and brackets and the door surrounds.

Those brackets if not included are $24.95 each and available through a number of vendors.

Thanks my sister in law brought hers over. I got the top for $200 but I don't have those brackets. I'm gonna see if he still has them on his jeep if not I still don't feel like I come out to bad even if I have to order the brackets

I have all the brackets except the 2 for the roll bar. Already had the hard top off and I wasn't about to put it back on so I just stuck a board in the middle to hold the back up. Ghetto rigged I know but hopefully it will only be like that for a day or so

I am in the same boat. I just bought an unused soft top without the roll bar brackets (he traded the Jeep and didn't know it had brackets) that came from a 2011 JK and I want to use it on my 2013 JK. However, the Quadratech website is showing the brackets are only for 2007-2010. They don't show a bracket for a 2013. Anyone know a part number or source for the correct brackets?
Thanks,
