What part is missing here?

See the pic below.

What weatherstriping part am I missing here? There are tapped holes, and I can see witness marks from where slots were in the original part. With my soft upper doors on I can see a pretty wide gap through this area, so I think there should be some kind of weatherstrip there, but I'm not sure what to call it or where to look for it, other than the dealership.

I don't know what original top was on the Jeep, but it has a Bestop replacement top now, with half doors, and Bestop soft uppers with rounded corners.

Thank you. They sure don't look like what I was expecting, but it looks like the hole pattern.

Now I have to figure out if the Bestop install is supposed to keep those, or something different.

NP,

And yes they should still use them, that is what the uppers "seal" against

My Bestop Sunrider (with the flip back front section) called for removing those pieces.

Maybe so, but you still have to have them to install a top.

Why is that? I have a Pavements Ends top and don't have those pieces or the holes for them but would to use them. Is it just a matter of drilling and screwing them on?

Looking at that part and looking at the Jeep, I can't figure out how it is supposed to work. There is no place for the pin to go. From some pictures online it looks like the pin is at the top, facing outward. But there isn't any hole in the soft door to receive that pin.

I know, it's only $30, but hate to buy something I can't use. I need to find a Jeep around with those installed and take a quick look.

The "pins" are what the factory top hardware that attaches to the windshield (runs along the rollbar spreader) pops into. I've had mine off for 12 years with my Bestop. They're only needed with a factory style top.

I have a BesTop Supertop and don't need those pieces either, but then I am running with full doors. With the half doors I think you do need something like those in place for the uppers to seal against.
My upper bars require these for mounting

"If you are replacing an old soft top, be certain that all
parts of the old top are removed, including the windshield retainer. Old metal parts are not compatible
with the new Supertop. Using parts other than those
provided in your Supertop kit can result in personal
injury and/or damage to the vehicle and soft top."

http://www.quadratec.com/Assets/Installation/46847.pdf

I remember struggling with this when I installed my top because it doesn't mention those plastic side pieces, but I'm fairly certain that the brackets that go between the spreader bar and the windshield prevent those plastic pieces from being installed. (or if the plastic pieces are on, prevent the brackets from going on)

Yea, that is part of the factory (or Bestop Supertop NX) frame work. They can not be left in place with any of the other soft tops, hard top, or full doors.
