I just bought a 2005 TJ hardtop for my 2000 TJ. My 2000 TJ already had a wiring harness for a hardtop but it is different then what is on the 2005 top. What is the easiest and cheapest way to hook the top up? Is there an adapter or something that I can use to hook this up? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I dont have the wire diagrams in front of me but the connector pin placements should be the only diffrence. So what you need is a trip to the dealer for a 2005 model replacement socket to attach to the jeep. Then try and get the wire diagram, and take apart the old socket and replace with the new one. The dealer sells these for ones that have been crushed or damaged, and you're likely to have better luck with the one on the truck than replacing the one on the top.

Strong suggestion: if you dont have a lot of paticience with small tools to do this, have the dealer do it. Replacing connectors without the right tools, or a lot of enginuity is a pain.

I believe you can get adapter harnesses from your local Jeep dealer or try www.jeepsareus.com
