I think I found what I need here:
MOPAR 6036311AA - MOPAR® Soft Top Shoulder Screw for 01-12 Jeep® Wrangler TJ, Unlimited TJ, Wrangler JK & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec
The dealer sells them for $5/piece!!! Knowing that I guess I will make a trip to Lowes tonight to see if they might have something similar. Does anyone now if the shoulder is necessary?
Go with the OEM part. I know the $20 is tough medicine (only $10 if you have an LJ), but they are designed to work with the plastic clevic'es. Replacing those when they break is way more expensive.Bumping an old thread since I lost my soft top knuckle screws as well.
I removed the lower front flare extensions that sit behind the front fender flares. Turns out those screws fit perfectly in the soft top knucle joint. Ugly as hell and you need some kind of washer to make them fit right, but it works.
Has anyone found a decent <$5 hardware store solution to replacing these?
