Help with 2009 Sahara Unlimited Factory Standard Soft Top.....

Hi. I'm new to this forum and was wondering if anyone could help me out with a question from a potential buyer of my soft top. I sell on eBay and currently have my soft top up for auction.....link to my listing below.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281412238694...84.m1555.l2649

Have had trouble researching and/or figuring out if I have all necessary parts for installation. Received this question from a potential buyer a few minutes ago:

"Are all parts included for installation? Purchased my Jeep with a hard top and want a soft top...."

I'm thinking if I'm missing anything, it would be just a few screws. Would that be an accurate assumption? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!

There are brackets that bolt to the roll bar and these are the most common missing part when buying a soft top from someone.

Those are the brackets. But you also need the bolts to attach them to the roll bar.

You can buy them but they're not common. I didn't look at your ad. Everything I listed is what is needed to be complete.

There would be four bolts for the brackets. Those look like hardtop bolts. If you have everything else besides the bracket bolts I would still call that complete. Just let the buyer know that they have to get those bolts. M21 comes to mind but they may be different.

Edit: Also let them know that the position of the footman loop above the windshield moved I'm not sure what year. So they may have to cut/grind the soft top header a little but it's no big deal. A 10 minute job. Do you know what year Jeep they want it for?

No they're different sizes.
