At the end of the summer, I bought a 2002 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4.0L, 6 cylinder. Most of it is stock and it has a hard top. For the upcoming spring and summer months, I am looking into buying a quadratec soft top. However, im unsure if I can put one on as is. That's why im here... Do I need to buy the kit or could I just buy a replacement hard top and it would still work? To me, the kit just seems like it makes it easier to take the top off and put it on but, my brothers 1998 wrangler sport (4 cylinder) doesn't have a kit. He just zips, Velcro's, and snaps it together to take it on and off. I don't mind doing extra work to assemble it at take it off because money is an issue and I cant really afford the kit.
