Where can i get a full hardware set for a soft top?
 
I just recently bought a 1998 tj and it came with a hardtop, i want to buy a softop because it would be more practicle for the summer.
I found soft tops all over the place online and found plenty.
but i couldnt find anyplace where i could buy hardware for a softop.
I need the complete set for the hardtop.
Where should i look?

You need the complete set-up for the soft top or the hard top? your post doesn't make sense.

Well i need a soft top and the hardware for a soft top
my main concern is the hardware becuase the soft stops are easy to find

all of the companies that sell soft tops offer it where you can buy either just the soft top skin or both the hardware and the soft tops.

I don't think that's true, for example;
Bestop Replace-A-Top Spice*51180-37 by the Jeep Specialists | Morris 4x4 Center

the first bulliten says that "require factory original hardware"
and thats from one of the links you gave me

Go search Craigslist. I spent about a month scouring an area about 350 miles in every direction and found one for 250, hardware included with tinted windows. Found several for that price so it shouldn't be too hard if you are patient.

Thats because it's a "replace-a-top" you buy that one when you have a soft top that you want to replace. In which case you would already have all the hardware.

I found this one;

that might work, comes with full hardware and a nifty little sunroof thingy.
