I found a used JKU soft top listed online, the only issue is the cross-bar that goes across the rear seat is bent. The seller claims he bent it when trying to install it on the top.

I'm waiting for word back from the seller as to which top it is, and when I can check it out. Anyone have experiencing getting replacement parts for the tops? Quadratec has already said they don't stock replacement parts, and recommended reaching out to the manufacturer. I found entire replacement kits, but not individual pieces.

Is it worth purchasing if this part is damaged?

Attached are the two the pictures the seller posted.

2 questions

1) Will it work as-is or does the bend prevent it from functioning properly
2) Can it be bent back carefully? (likely won't know until you buy it!)

If it's a significant savings, you may want to get it and figure out how to remedy the bend - maybe treat it like a broken camping tent pole
