Are you talking abut the bows, or the tailgate bar?Geoff, is there a difference in the rear section on the 2011's as some people are pointing out? I think someone mentioned that there is no longer a plastic clip for the bar and that it is now on the tub?
from 2007-2009 they used the same tops.. 2010 they changed it completely and from i've seen the 2011 have a different latch on the back.. soo i dno!
So got my new-in-a-box top today.. It's a mopar 2010 by the part number.. I'm assuming that the 11 and 10 are the same..?. I know the hardtop window is larger... is it the same on the soft top?
I think I just answered my own question....
Part number is IDENTICAL on both.. so this would make me believe that they are the same.
Bonus is that because it came separately, it's all in one giant box for me to assemble in the spring. (the dealership did offer if I have problems) the box JUST fit with the rear seats down.
2007-2009 are the same.
2010 and 2011 are "cable tops" - they use a spring and cable system to hold the front part of the top down tightly over the doors. This makes it much easier to flip the top back for the Sunrider sunroof feature.
The cable tops use slightly different door surrounds. They do not need a lip to attach the plastic tabs/canards too, and instead need a flat "shelf" for the cable to sit on top of. It's a small difference, with basically a non-removable small plastic "shelf" put into the slot of the earlier surrounds.
In addition, 2011 has a larger rear window, as turburu points out.
The dimensions for all JK years are the same, so a 2011 top will fit a 2007, if as Daggo points out, you swap all the hardware too.
