As long as you have the frame and all the windows you are good. I believe the 03 and up have windows that zip differently.

1997-2006 are all the same.

I am 100% sure the windows for 97-02 and 03-06 are different (the zippers). I have a 06 top on my 97 so I know it will work, but I got the complete top with frame and windows.

The 03 top WILL fit on your 2000. I put a 2006 OEM soft top on a 2000. Fit's like a glove.

From 2003 on, the top clips are narrower. So, you can't put an older top (97-02) on an 03-06 without changing the head liner on the top too. Best Top sells TJ tops from 97-02 and 03-06 but you can still go new top to older jeep.

I don't know if the window zippers changed or not, but it doesn't affect how the top will fit or the function of the windows.

Yes you can put an older top on a newer body.. I have an 01 top on my 03.

Yes the window male/female ends changed 02-03.
