Welcome to the forum. You will need the bolts and the nut inserts around the lip of the tub.
07 and 08 hard tops have the center latch for the freesom panels on the actual panels. On 09 and up, the latch secures to the footman loop.

I think they changed the location of the guide pins or added a second set. I think all you would have to do is cut off the second set if you get the newer top for your rig. The guide pins are along the tub where the bolts are.

That's the '14 and later tops. Alignment pin on the back corners have no matching hole is the earlier tubs. The pins need to be removed.

The switchover was earlier than '14. My '13 has the newer style. Might have been 2012 or something.
