will a new roll bar bolt straight into a CJ?

i want to put in a 'looped' roll bar in the cj for added protection of back passengers, shoulder belts for back passengers and because it is a better place to start for a full cage. i don't remember what year they started using them, i am thinking '93 ish. but will the ones from yj and tj both bolt straight in, or only from yj's?

thanks all

A YJ bar will bolt right in with the exception of one hole on each side not lining up. I put a YJ bar in my CJ and I really like it.
I'm pretty certain a TJ bar will NOT bolt right in and takes a bit of modification.

Keep in mind that nothing bolts straight into a CJ. Not even CJ stuff. I don't know why they even call stuff "bolt on." Nothing I've ever purchased has just "bolted on" without dickering with it and that then leading to other things that need to be dickered with!

A CJ5 is shorter than a CJ-7 or a YJ and will not use roll bars from either a YJ or TJ or CJ7 without serious modification. Just a note
