TJ Hardtop Wiring adaptor

I have a 2000 Wrangler and purchased a 2003-2006 hard top. I didn't realize at the time (nor did I check while purchasing the used top....) the electrical connection/adaptor would not match.

Seeing all the posts on this topic I'm wondering what would be wrong with buying a universal wiring adaptor ($20 for a 12 pin...) or just using something similar (trailer wiring harness?)
I realize there is an adaptor for roughly $100 on Jeepsrus website, but seeing all those that have had the similar problem, I have to imagine there are a bunch of adaptors out there that have been cut off to use the adaptor.
Anyone have input or an adaptor they would part with?

I bought one of these (a bit expensive for what it is):

There are also DIY threads on this forum that show how to swap the connector to the right one for your harness for just a few dollars in parts and your time.

You can adapt your hardtop to work with the factory plug in your Jeep easily and cheaply:

What if I have the opposite problem? I have a 2005 jeep with a 1999 hard top. How do I make that work?
