Hard Top Questions

Will a hardtop from a TJ wrangler fit and work properly on a YJ wrangler? I was under the impression that this would not work, but I found one for sale that the owner claims is off a 97 Wrangler and he is using it on his 87 Wrangler and says it fits perfect. I'm looking for a top for my brothers 89 wrangler.

I don't think it will fit because of the way the TJ latches in the front to the windshield.

Re: Hard Top Questions

It definitely WON'T fit.
It tried it on...
'00 TJ hard top and '01 soft top on the '93 YJ...
Soft can be adjusted to fit (with some drilling on the rollbars & on the windshield frame) + some other minor changes, but the hard top just won't fit.

Actually, if you're crazy enough, I guess you could make a TJ hardtop fit even on a Boeing 747 [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img], but... is it worth it?

Not even close, and if you look at one on EBAY make sure that it is what they say it is! I drove 1700 miles to pick one up for a buddy and it was for a YJ not a TJ as advertized! He got his money back but we lost out on vacation time and gas money to get there and back! But to top it off the guy put it back on EBAY again as a TJ top!
