Question & Answers

4 Answered questions

I recently purchased soft top - 51193-35 and tailgate - 52602-01.. I later read that tailgate - 52600-01 is compatible with the top I ordered. Will the tailgate part I purchased (52602-01) fit the Soft top I purchased. Also, what is the difference between the 2 tailgate bars mentioned above ? Thanks!

Asked by MF from San Diego on

Hello, For your top either tailgate bar will work. The only difference is that part #52602-01 has a small Velcro strip that doesn't come on 52600-01
