Bought a hardtop for my TJ thinking i would try the hardtop route. How can i tell if it's oem? I seen on another thread that if it has a wiper but no defrost probably not oem. ??

That is a factory top. Looks like there are side vents so it is a 97-02

No, the TJ hardtops have the wiper motor on the passenger side. I believe your thinking of the 07-10 model hardtops, they have the motor on the drivers side.

The question is, why is it hanging down? When shut off last, it should have returned to to the stored position which is horizontal.

The motor is broken

The assembly is loose

If the OP's jeep was a softtop only model, the wiring does not exist and would have to add the Mopar kit to make the wiper work

If the OP's jeep is a 03-06, and has the wiring or installs the kit, the plug for the hard top needs to be modified to mate with the 97-02 top.
