    I recently got my first Jeep! It's a 1989 Wrangler. It has a few minor issues, being 30 years old, but nothing too bad. It's a 4 cy, (wanted a 6), but hey, I fell in love. 150k, hard top, soft top. Anyway, I'm sure I'll be here a lot! Anyway, does anyone know what this black piece is called? It holds the back part of the soft top frame to the Jeep. I've broken both, and have no idea what it's called to order one.

    hello @newgirl, welcome from Oklahoma.


    Yup, that's what it looks like. Didn't even notice that at first with the paint job and all.

    Never mind, this is for a TJ not a YJ. I'll keep looking.
