tj hard top interchangeability
Hello. new to the forum as of about 2 min. ago . I'm on a willys forum and a unimog list also so thought I'd try you guys out since I just picked up a 02 wrangler. My question is I bought the jeep 2 weeks age and last night picked up a super clean hard top . The jeep being an 02 and the hard top being a year or two later (I think) the plug for the wipers and rear defog. don't match up. Is it possible that someone makes an addapter to plug these together or might I have to just ditch the plugs and start from scratch and round up a matched set of plug that I can splice the wires onto once I figure out which wire goes where. With that said I'll sit back and let you guys bombard me with a ton of good ideas By the way the wrangler makes 6 jeeps out in the garage

Also check for side vents. '03 and up hardtops do not have side vents, they have a tailgate vent. If you do not have vents, you will find it hard(er) to close the door.

I do not know of a specific adapter. You can buy hardtop wiring kits, if you want to "start over" with some fresh wires. Here's one at Quadratec.

I like your vehicle collection! It's hard to have that many cars, and all of them designed to make your TJ feel really fast and good handling.
