Now you can replace that old worn-out Factory bow assembly hardware on YJ Wranglers. Includes all mounting hardware, all OEM metal components of the factory assembly and comes with Ultimate Speader Bars, allowing you to tighten or loosen the tension setting of the top. Now includes tailgate retainer bar and plastic vertical windshield channels. Tough durable black finish provides long life. Upper door frames available separately.
The over the door bar slide lock was hard to lock to the windshield fitting and the snaps for the top to attach too came off when snapping the top to the frame. The tailgate bar has been redesigned so that the rear door seal is now attached to the top of the rear door vice being a part of the tailgate bar. I don't like that change, I am having a hard time getting the seal to stay on the door, I put the old bar back on. The extender bars are adjustable but hard to turn on one side, had to use a wrench on it. It is better than what it replaced due to my old frame was worn out.
Needed an new softtop for my 1990 YJ Wrangler daily driver, needed the hardware and top since the Jeep didn't have any top at all. Excellent quality and design, easy to install. Completely satisfied with the product, easy to understand instructions and looks great!
Will this hardware will fit the smitybuilt replacement top?

According to Rugged Ridge this Replacement Soft Top Hardware will work with factory and aftermarket factory style tops. So I would say yes this will work with the Smittybilt Factory Replacement top. Hope this helps.
