Soft top question
 
I've got a messed up rear window, and am trying to figure out if a replacement from Bestop will work. I know the passenger rear side is usually where the label is, but mine is no help. It says:

SOLVAY DRAKA INC
DOT# 138AS-6 (something else I can't read)
/\/\/\D2335
the warning about cleaning with damp cloth
5JH12BDLAD

No manufacturer name or logo.

Any ideas? I'd hate to buy a window set and them find out they don't fit. If I can't be sure, I guess it's new top time.

You bought the TJ used, I take it? Does the top itself say anything - like a Bestop sticker?
I'd recommend going to this page, and trying to see if you have the factory top or the Bestop aftermarket, or something else.

And once you know what you've got, give our support team a call - 800-845-3567. I'm not positive which window replacements will fit which tops. (It gets confusing). But they'll know.

Odds are you have a factory top. So we may not be able to supply a replacement, and may send you to Mopar. But call first to double check.

Yeah, bought it used a few months ago. I've got factory hardware, and thought it was a factory top. It sure looks like it's 5 years old. I thought the factory tops had a mopar emblem on the window. This one doesn't, and there are no stickers of any type anywhere on it. Only one zipper pull on the rear window, too. Don't know if it lost one or if it was made that way.

I'll probably just buy a replace-a-top. The half door skins are kind of scratched up too. The top itself has one minor small tear that doesn't even leak. I'll keep the old outfit for an emergency spare. Guess my upper sliders will have to wait a while.
