Thanks! I'll check it out!

Another option that's not been suggested yet is a 3D printed replacement. I presume there are places in the US that can scan/model and print things out like there are in the UK. You could even get a piece of wood and whittle one if you have a bit of time.

After reading the detail from this string and meaganchase814, it makes sense now why my new top is loose at the rear windows. I will check this evening if the piece is from my existing top or the previous one. OP, please let us know if you hear back from Bestop about obtaining this item individually as now I am concerned that I am missing them both.

That could be your issue! it does make a huge difference to have those pieces in there. I actually called davey's Jeeps (http://www.daveysjeeps.com/) and they shipped me 2 for 16$ (16 includes shipping)

Good to know I can buy another if needed. It seems I had two issues that caused the loose top. One side was missing that piece and the other side the piece was not resting on the cross bar as intended. My frame is slightly distorted and you have to prop up the frame before you clip the front to ensure that it is resting correctly. Many thanks!
