Hello,
I am looking at converting my softtop to a hardtop. I have run across a hard top from a 2008 and I was wondering if it would fit on my 2012? What years are the convertible tops interchangeable?
Thanks all,
This is my first post here.

I would suggest visiting 'sebringclub.net', dedicated to Chrysler convertibles. The contributors there are extremely knowledgeable on the 2008-2014 tops, aka Gen 3.

Mechanically yes, the tops from 2008 to 2014 are interchangeable.

The hardtop has an additional wiring harness for the hardtop panels. I am not certain how this connects to the top wiring harness on the left side of the trunk. I suspect the connector for this harness is already present and just need to be located. It may be a part of the defroster wiring harness.

You will also need to change the top selection in the vehicle configuration from soft-top to hard-top. The appcar-diagFCA app will allow you to do this.

This is a very high level overview, no claim to completeness.

May I inquire why you are looking to do this?

You would want a hardtop donor car to attempt this. Both are JS-bodies, but the bigger differences may be with the electronic modules & wiring harnesses.
