Factory Hardware

The Jeep Wrangler TJ (1997 to 2006), factory soft top hardware is characterized by a frame assembly that pivots at the center roll bar, just behind the front seat head rests. These two rear sections are connected by fabric straps along the upper rear sides. Also, factory hardware uses large plastic door frames to attach the soft top fabric and seal the doors.
