Hardtop Wiring Kit
I just bought a used hardtop for my 2004 Wrangler Unlimited. I've seen the wiring kits for sale on the internet to connect the defrost and wiper. How hard are they to install (I'm not very mechanical)? Do they also come with tubing to connect to the washer fluid or will I have to buy that separately? Any advice anyone has would be great. Thanks!
I've looked into this myself and found that the dealership is actually cheeper by about $10 and no shipping. (compaired to quadratech). I comes with all the wiring, switches, hoses, and new washer fluid bottle.... everything you need to hook it up.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

3. BUT!!! here's a possible catch! -- is the hardtop you purchased from a 2004 model Wrangler? If "yes," then no worries. If "no," then MAYBE a worry...but it's solvable. The issue can be differing electrical connector halves -- the half on the top might not match the half you get in the kit. I ran into this problem when I put my kit in (a 2004 top onto a 1998 TJ)...here's a thread detailing the connector half (they call it a "connector repair kit") you will need to purchase from the dealer IF you encounter this problem...

There is also a special note for 1997 Models.
On '97 models, replace these 2 terminals with the loose terminals (item 13) supplied in the kit. Solder these connections!
I have the 2 loose terminals.
Where is the right hand side 10-way cluster located?
What do the 2 wires connect to?
