1. 2018 jeep wrangler jk 4 door soft top issues

    Hi! We recently purchased a used 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK 4 door that only came with Hard top and T- Roof. I purchased and aftermarket Smittybuilt Soft Top - not realizing it was the skin only. I also purchased the surrounds for the doors, windows etc. Went to put the Soft Top on and it appears it is missing the structure to support / frame the soft-top - specifically the tail section and header. I have tried to search for these parts separately to purchase but no luck.

    Any help or insight on what other parts are need and where to purchase would be much appreciated! The SmittyBilt soft top purchased noted on the installation instructions for the replacement top - (part#9085235) 2010 & up unlimited (4 door),

    Thank you!

    So what is the part number of what you bought?


    This comes with hw but not a real full soft top.

    Smittybilt 9083235 Bowless Combo Soft Top. This sits ontop of the rollbars.
    Amazon has the header bar:
    Smittybilt 90106 Header Windshield Channel for 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler JK

    & the tailgate bar
    Smittybilt 91205 OE Style Tailgate Bar for Jeep JK 2/4-Door

    It sounds like you are missing these

    OE Style Door Surrounds - Smittybilt


    FWIW Bestop is the OEM mfg on jeep tops
