Both me and the girl who hit me have Progressive Insurance, so they are doing an investigation to determine fault. They said it would be atleast a week before they have a determination. I have 0 deductable, so that good if I am at fault, but if I am not at fault, I will be selling an awesome two piece hard top with a missing rear driver window. CHEAP!!
They would have to replace it, and replace the rim that is damages, and pay for a paint job, which I would do myself with some rattlecan.

All hardtops are missing that rear glass! Mine is due to some hooligans. Cheapest I can find rear glass is like, $260 with defroster.

I would like to see any other car/truck survive that with just some paint damage and a smashed window.

The obvious reason for this roll-over, no torque arm bushings and stud.

I can take pics to further explain, but it might be a few days since I just put it my friends garage cause the rain is coming and I have no rear window.
You have a TJ AX-15 mounting bracket. That is why you had to modify the skid to accept the 4 bolts. Here is a pic of a TJ bracket which you can compare to the YJ style bracket which is depicted in the previous illustration to see the differences between the two. This also explains why you don't have the insulator bolt as there is no provision for it on the TJ style bracket.

Actually the window busted cause my wire strippers came out of the unlocked tool box mounted on the pass fender. If it was locked it wouldnt have even busted, and my Jeep would have had a little scuff. That thing is a mini tank.

When I flipped it back over, they cop said it wouldnt start, I laughed and said Oh yeah it will, I built this bit@h. I got it back over, let it sit (so the oil drains back down), and cycled the fuel pump, and she fired right up, just a small amount of smoke. There is no knocks, or anything. Just have to go get the alignment done again. Good thing it came with a warranty for 4 months.

Is the TJ and YJ tranny mounts the same? Could I just get a YJ mount and slap it in. I have another tranny skid plate thats not modified. I guess I need to take care of this ASAP.

I think you don't really need to do anything, IMO.

The YJ has a 2 bolt setup and an isolator stud to control torque, apparently the TJ mount uses a 4 bolt setup which eliminates the need for the isolator stud.

I agree, so long as the TJ mount is used along with the TJ bracket. The TJ mount is much beefier and had the torque arms built into it. Here are pics.... TJ on the top, YJ on the bottom.
