JK 4 Door Soft Top

I found a soft top on craigslist that came with a 2008 JK 4 door. Will that fit my 2010 4 door? Looking online at some of the aftermarket tops I see some go 2007-2009 and then 2010-2013 but some go 2007-2013. So what does the OEM tops fit?

Thanks

In 2011 they changed the size of the rear window, i think they made it wider. Anyways, It should still fit if its a compete softtop replacement. I know the side windows are the same the only changes are with the width of the back window.

It will fit, but the header will need a little bit of grinding where the center windshield frame loop will contact the plastic header. In 2009 the center windshield frame loop was moved to the left a couple inches. I have a 2008 top on my 2009.

Make sure you get the brackets and attaching hardware that attach the top bows to the sport cage. It's a $60 mistake if you don't.

What do these brackets look like?

I am going to look at this top tonight and hopefully it will be in good shape and I will buy it. I'm getting it for $250 so I think that's a good deal. My biggest concern is if it will have all the hardware with it. I have looked for a parts list but all I can find is one for a Bestop Supertop. So will the parts list be about the same?

Top.
Three windows.
Tailgate bar and two plastic clips.
Two brackets that attach to cage and four total screws for mounting.
Four machine screws for mounting bows to cage brackets.
Four total door surrounds. Two are hinged.
Six total thumb screw for mounting surrounds to cage. Two are short.
Two Velcro straps for securing bows when folded back.
Two snap straps for rolling up aft window.

Don't worry too much if the straps are missing. I think that's everything.

Thanks, HUGE help. he has only had it on once and been stored every since so I know how easy something could have been lost even if he says everything is there.
