Re: Hard Top of CJ vs 1st model wrangler
I've got a CJ top and doors on my YJ. The doors have the older style bar handles, not the paddle type. I had to take the strikers of the body but they fit perfect as long as the top is on. The top keeps them sealed tight, take the top off and the doors rattle.
As for the rear, since I still have my spare on the tailgate, I have to unlatch the window, then open the gate and the window at the same time. If the tire wasn't there, I'd have to open the window first, then swing the gate out, since the window closes over the tailgate.
