2013 freedom top on 2008 JK

Do they sell something so the middle latch on freedom top reaches the bracket on the windshield or is there something that you can do to make it work as the bracket is on the wrong side. Thanks

They moved the footman loop in 09. Running a 07 soft top on a 15 and I removed the loop for summer. I will reinstall it in the fall. Really no way to move it. I have heard of others not worrying about it with no leaks.

Thanks, I thought they may have came up with something for this. I thought about going to a wrecking yard buying one of the footman loops off the end as they are screwed in and placing it where it needs to be on the left side.

i would think you could move the hoop on the window frame. Just use riv nuts for the new location. Might work.

I think it will work. I was wondering if anyone has done this before.

I have an 2014 softtop on my 08 no problem. The only difference is the footman loop on the windshield frame.
