You said you have a YJ... Didnt you? They all come with the hardware. Mine included the windshield channel, the rear bar, corner clips, and door surrounds. Just make sure you select that you want the hardware included. As for the price, that's about right for the softopper top. Softopper put some great thought into this design, I highly recommend it. If you have any questions, I'm sure you can call them... Get the # from their site.

From what I've seen most of the more new softops need the windshield channel.

I have found a factory top off a 2004, looks in great shape, tinted windows. comes with windshield channel and door surrounds!!
Price is $550

There is a small hole in the rear window big enough for a pencil to fit through.

Does this sound like a good deal?

And second question... how do i know what windows will fit into this seeing its a factory top? There are tinted windows for sale in my area online that are used, but the guy who's selling the top said you have to make sure they are factory windows? other brand windows may not fit into the factory top?

I just went through this very same search.

A couple things I learned about buying a used stock Mopar TJ soft top is that depending on the year of your jeep, you ideally need to find a top from either 1997-2001 or 2002-2006 due to some small design changes. This affected both the bows and the windows, so not everything is interchangeable. Also, while Bestop might make the stock soft top, the Mopar bows are a better quality than what Bestop has to offer. This is according to several side by side comparisons of people on this forum.

FWIW, two weeks ago on CL I was able to find a barely used 2006 Mopar top for $270, complete with bows, tinted windows and all hardware (minus the 4 attachment screws).

Regarding the differences between the old and new windows on the Mopar soft top- As I understand it, the zippers were flip flopped during the change. Meaning the boys and girls changed sides in 2002, so when you mix old windows with the new canopy (and vice versa) the zipper parts don't fit together.
