    I've recently acquired a NIB Kayline top for my ECJ5. It's mostly complete but it's missing some of the small installation parts and the Installation Instructions. I believe this to be one of the later model tops but I don't have any idea what model name or number might be.

    I have the bows but I don't have the hardware that connects them to the jeep.
    I also need the door handle hardware.
    I really don't know if I'm missing anything else as I don't have any kind of hardware list
    I also don't have the installation instructions.

    Any help with sourcing parts and literature would be greatly appreciated.

    I've never had a K-Line top but you might look at what Bestop uses for door hardware on their old style tops to see if maybe that would work. You can buy that new. Comes with inside/outside handles and "bushings".

    That would be awesome. What I need most is all the hardware and connections. I know that there were a few different configurations and hopefully yours is the same as mine.
    Thanks Scott.

    That upper door hinges and curtain track are the same as bestop. I posted bestop part numbers somewhere on here this summer for the fast back install, I'll have to dig a little.

    That's great. Is there anyway I can get you to forward me a high resolution photo or scan of this literature. It appears to be the exact model I have.

    I can text it to you if you want, or email it.
    PM me your # or email and I'll blast it off to you
    Or, open the image in a new tab and zoom in as needed.
