wrangler hard top swap

Can anyone tell me if a newer hard top can be easily retroed to fit on a 93 Wrangler? I had a soft top so I have no hardware currently on there. I expect I will have to specially attach the mounts. Will it fit size wise? And what mods will I have to make? I hope this will work! The top is in great shape and the guy only wants 100 bucks! I'll just have to find the upper half doors.

Re: wrangler hard top swap

Don't take my word for it, but I think I remember hearing that there are some width/length differences. As for the hardware, the post-YJ (i.e. TJ) hard tops have different attacks-some kind of attack that attaches hardtop to the windshield frame. YJs didn't have those, they were bolt-on.
But somebody else will probably know a bit more on that...

yeah, the tj hard top will not fit on a yj/cj body. The YJ hard tops differed from year to year (rear latches..etc) but you can get them all to fit
