CJ to YJ

Well the ole CJ7 is all but rusted away.Found a '88 YJ without a motor for a grand, so I plan to put the 258 out of the CJ in the YJ.

The YJ has no top or doors, took a CJ door and it fits on the YJ.

Found a soft top hardware kit made by rugged, do I have to use their top or can I use any top?

Cannot seem to find any door skins for the CJ soft doors, but will keep looking.
TIA

How did I get sand THERE!

Yes. The CJ and YJ body tubs and windshield frame are identical as far as tops and doors are concerned. I have the opposite situation on my CJ...I use a YJ supertop on my CJ. The tailgate is a bit of an issue when using a YJ top on a CJ but a CJ top on a YJ will not be an issue.
