I have been looking online and I thought they were the horizontal bars from the windshield to the vertical rod that connects to the tub but notice the 90 degree turn I'm unsure what that is for. None of the examples I'm seeing online shows a CJ7/cJ5 top to have a 90 elbow. They all have straight bars.

I have the factory Whitco top on my 1973 CJ5 and the set of bars on the left in yor first picture looks exactly like the rail from windshield to verticle bar with the 90 elbow. Not sure on the other, but maybe for a safari top?

Thinking the bars are likely from the earlier cj's and the longer bars a cj6!?
