That's the newer 2010 and up style stop. They got rid of the plastic clip in pieces above the doors and use a spring loaded cable to hold it tight to the surrounds. They require a different surround that the 07-09 tops used.I recently bought a new soft top but it has a spring connected to a cable and a plate. Does anyone know what this is for? Also I'm missing the plastic that clips in above the doors.
No way to modify them, you would need to get new surrounds. Where yours have the channel on the bottom the clip goes into, the newer ones have a recessed groove on top for the cable to pull down into.Oh wonderful, any idea what the difference is in the surrounds or if the older style surrounds can be modified ?
