TJ hard top on a yj?

mom wants a swb jeep for the island house and wants to be able to put a hard top on for winter storage. Cheeper is better and i have the hard top off my '97 tj sitting on the side of the house, will it fit a yj? I'm not sure how the front of the top attaches to yj's but i could see that being a problem. If you cut some slits in the windshield frame i could see it working though i really havn't looked at a yj that closely. Anybody have any experiance w/ this?

To the best of my knowledge the TJ hardtop will not fit on the YJ.

Re: TJ hard top on a yj?

I'm going to second that. I do not believe TJ hard tops on a YJ will work. The TJ's windshield is slopped back more than a YJ.

I've seen cj soft doors on a tj and they fit pretty well.

The TJ windshield was moved forward to accomadate the air bags. That is why the YJ and TJ tops will not interchange.

Re: TJ hard top on a yj?

I kinda gotta give a little [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] at this post (all in fun). It's not often that I hear "swb jeep" (as in another) for the "island house" (like buying an portable generator for the shack) ...and "cheaper" in the same post [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]


I truly wish I had these problems of economy [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

I would love to make you an offer, but how to get it to Idaho is the question?

Re: TJ hard top on a yj?

You're a little far for me to trek out there and pick it up (but then again for the right price [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]).

...but I'll put out the word on my personal network of bargain hunting jeepers [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I take it that it's black (you never know when you're looking at a jeep in mud [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] ) ...and in fair shape?

I'm a fellow Illinois Jeeper who could use a black top for my TJ...
