I picked up a used soft top that I received from a friend at no cost. The soft top is an original from the factory, but the only thing that he gave me was the top with the frame. No mounting hardware, door surrounds, etc.... When I called my local Jeep dealer, they told me that it would probably just be cheaper to buy a brand new top. Not sure if this is true, but just looking for a little bit of help as I have never had a soft top on my Wrangler.

Bestop makes a bow kit for the factory tops (which they make). I'm sure they can set you up with any other hardware you need as well, just contact their customer service. Very helpful folks based right here in Denver.
Not a cheap kit, but less than a complete quality top.

Bestop's factory cable style bow system for 2-door Wrangler JK provides a heavy-duty, carbon steel material and engineered thermoplastic polymer components to provide continued use of your 2007-2018 Supertop NX or 2010-2018 factory soft top.
  • Fits 2010-2018 Wrangler JK 2-door with factory soft top or Bestop Supertop NX.
  • Fits 2007-2009 Wrangler JK 2-door WITH Bestop Supertop NX (Will NOT fit 2007-2009 factory soft top).
  • Kit designed for cable applications only.
  • Designed to meet or exceed OEM specifications.
  • Includes bow assembly, replacement windshield header, door surrounds, tailgate bar and clips.

If you need a frame, look to Craigslist. The frame itself, from anyone, is expensive. Find a takeoff cheap. I found a 2 dr takeoff for $80 when I needed frame parts. Yeah, I had to drive 2 hours but even with a 4 hr drive and a tank of gas, it was cheaper than buying a replacement frame.
