when i bought my jeep it came with a hard top and a soft top, but i did not realize that all of the mounting hardware had been removed for the soft top. i found this kit on ebay and just wondering if anyone can confirm that this is what i need. i am having no luck finding any type of used pieces

1987 1995 Jeep Wrangler Half Door Soft Top Channel Hardware Kit 1 | eBay

and do i also need this?

1987 2006 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Tailgate Rear Window Bar with Clips | eBay

150 bucks just for the channels seems a bit steep....but then again its a jeep...

From what I can tell from the photos the seller posted is you'll be missing some pieces. Do you already have the softtop with the frame? Search more on eBay and see if there is a complete softtop hardware kit. That way you can almost ensure you'll have everything.

Yes I already have the soft top with two full frames. I just need every piece that attaches to the tub and windshield frame

The hardware however, on different brand tops require different branded hardware. Besttop, rampage, and Smittybuilt all use OEM hardware. You could buy the kit on eBay for about 100 bucks with the frame.

It should include: the frame (the part that mounts over the roll bars), 2 windshield mounts that the uppers plug into, 2 mounts where the back windows strap too, 2 corner mounts, 2 back mounts, the truck strap, and about 15 screws/bolt mounts.

I would go with the kit on ebay and get everything you need at once. i have a best top soft top and i recently just removed the hardtop to put the soft top back on. it is necessary that you have all hardware because if your missing one piece, the top is never going to go on right. good luck

theres no full kit that includes a frame for under 250 bucks and most of them are 300-350. i could piece one together way cheaper than that if i knew all the pieces

if you have the frame including door surrounds and half door frames those kits should have what you need except for the 1/2 door channels.
you could try some of the used jeep parts sellers like daveys jeep
