The guessing game!

Ok, well I know this is not a soft top for my TJ, but I don't know where else to post this because I don't know what it goes to....

Last year I bought a Jeep from a used car dealer and he gave me a couple garbage bags of things the previous owner left with the Jeep. This soft top they gave me has buttons along the two rear and back windows and another item, a long black metal bar...Maybe it goes with this soft top...I just have no clue and I'm hoping someone here can tell me what it goes to. Pictures can be found below!

Thanx for the help!

That thing in the 2nd picture is a BUMPER!

Actually I've no idea, looks like a soft top from a different vehicle. I'd try and get the owners name and number from the dealership and ask them about it - they may want it back.

Or if they won't give it to you - ask them to make a call for you.

The no drill header looks to be eithor
-best top (the support brackets for the J-hooks are riveted on)
-Rugged Ridge (the support brackers for the J-hooks are bolted on)

The top isnt OEM nor is it a replace-a-top from bestop.
Along the bottom of the top is there a plastic ridge?

It looks you just have eithor parts to a junk top or parts to different types of junk tops. A complete OEM/Bestop replace-a-top will require the following parts.

Frame (two pieces: both are U shaped and semi J-shaped) You'll see what i mean when you see it.
Top (fabric part, has the header built into it)
Three Windows
Rear Retainer Bar
Rear Brackets for the retainer bar.
Female connectors that go onto the open ends of the frame to clip into the rollbar.
Door surrounds
Rubber gaskets for the bottom of the door surrounds (whole bunch of electrical tape can do)

Top looks alot like the soft top for a Suzuki Samuri . They have snaps along the edge like that and would be a little smaller than a Jeep top .
I agree that the other piece looks like a no-drill header .
