Question Hard Top question

Question about a 2008 JKU hard top. Will a hard top off 2008 JKU fit a 2013 JKUR? Thanks in advance for your feed back.
Reason I ask, I had a 2008 freedom top given to me. It's in great shape. The color is gray, if it will fit I'm going to have it painted to color match the Jeep.

Yes. (Unless they changed something after 2012, but I'm not aware of it if they did.) I have a 2008 on my 2012.

Unless your '13 came with a hard top, you'll probably have to spend the 156.95 on the wiring harness if you want the washer/wiper/defroster to work. Probably also have to have the dealer flash it so the wiper works right instead of the wonky partial sweeps mine does. :lol

If I recall the date correctly, 2010 and later tops have a wider back glass, and the center latch on the freedom panels catches a loop on the windshield, whereas on the older tops, the center latch just ties the two panels together.

Sounds like the price was right on your top, so even if you had to spend $300 to $600 to get everything in the condition you want, you'd still be way ahead.
