97 soft top

A friend gave me his soft top off a 97 D-90 and I have one question. This top is slightly different to the 1995 top that I currently have been using over the past 11 years. This 97 top has support bars that run along the rear of each door to hold the weatherseal flush against the doors when closed. It appears that the foot part of the support bar should bolt into something? Is it supposed to bolt to the capping along the rear tub just in front of the roll bar? Does anyone have an idea of what size bolt this would take? That would save me the hardware store roulette game.
Thanks

it bolts thru the top of the capping . the bracket has a hole that a bolt goes thru us that for hardware requirements.

Josh,

He really needs a photo of the Bestop bracket. I know somebody here is using those.

That pic helps Josh. It looked like the bracket would go there I just could not tell if that hole was tapped for a bolt or not.
