Just to confirm, I need the front brackets and the bracket by the speakerbar. Should I remove these from the donor vehicle?Some bad info being given here. If you have soft top only, you will not the front brackets, the brackets at the speaker bar and obviously you won’t have screws nor the wiring for wiper. Here is a list of parts you will need(brackets and screws).
Most likely you will have to remove the two brackets and bolts above the mirror and the two brackets and bolts above the speaker bar from the donor vehicle. These brackets did not come equipped on my “soft top only” optioned 2018 JLU. I understand they would be included on “dual top” JLs from the factory. If they will not let you take them the bracket kits can be purchased from a dealer. I sourced a “new take off” hard top from a dealer last Fall and they provided me the additional brackets and hardware. You will also need the bolts for the main top. There are 8 I believe. Not critical for the transfer if you have other tools but you could also ask about the hard top tool kit from the donor Jeep. Includes a ratchet and torx male sockets. They may not let them go as I believe you can use the same toolkit to remove the doors.Just to confirm, I need the front brackets and the bracket by the speakerbar.
