Hey folks
I'm a CJ nutcase and a friend has just picked up his first jeep which us a JKU.
He found new soft top but he doesn't have the two rackets on the roll cage. Do any of you know where I can pick up a set from pretty easily?

Edit: sorry I should've mentioned I'm in Fremantle, Western Australia.

It depends what top it is, they don't all use the same brackets. Most tops are made by Bestop, so once the top is identified I'd start with any local retailers that might supply spare parts and if they can't help, I'd contact Bestop directly.

Thanks for getting back to me. It's the genuine equipment, the roof that came with the JK as new. The one we had for three years had the brackets already fitted

You will need to order the brackets from the Jeep Dealer.

Time to look for somebody selling an old top, or one in a junkyard.

I purchased them from Morris 4X4 for a lot less. I think the brackets and four mounting screws were around $60 total.
