Identifing softtop

My jeep came with Hardtop only from the factory, so I bought a used soft top, guy said it was for a tj. I tried to install this top this evening and it just doesnt seem to fit. The front bar with the latches in it doesnt line up and hits the door surrounds and when I have the bows hooked up it wont fold forward. I do know that it has a Mopar tailbar on it (855176736ac) and came with tj door surrounds, but dont know what the top is. It is a sunrider top and there are no tags or labels anywhere on it. I took a couple pic of around the front clamps things, it has two nobby things infront of the latch. I dont think this is the right top. Let me know what you think

Bestop makes the sunrider unless you found a cheap knockoff.I would have asked the brand before I bought any top.

That looks like a JK header bar. What does the rest of the top look like?

I'll have to get some other pics, I do know that it has the TJ tailgate bar with it. From what I have been reading I think that the later 06 TJ sunrider tops will not work with other TJ's.

Ok, its a JK top. It came with TJ windows and door surrounds which is why I thought it was a top for a TJ. I learned my lesson now!! Anybody need a JK top? LOL

Doesn't matter now, but for the record, the 06 sunrider fits perfectly fine on older TJs. I ran one on my 97.
All tops are interchangeable between years.
