yj top on cj

Does anyone know how the rear hoop attaches on the hardware of the tub? I put a wrangler top on my cj, and don't know 100% what it is supposed to look like. pics and ideas would be great. Thanks

Cecil

Taz, you might be able to handle this one, i think you are running this set up! Thanks

Re: yj top on cj

Taz is running a scrambler half hard top and I am assuming your talking about a soft top since you said ''rear hoop". I have a Bestop supertop and the hoop bolts to a "U" shaped bracket that bolts on the rail on the top edge of the tub. You can download instructions with drawings at Bestop's site.

Re: yj top on cj

Taz sent me a pic of his wrangler soft top...maybe its a summer thing for him. It is a stock wrangler top, not a bestop or aftermarket top. The wrangler top with the spreader bars. I bought half doors and the top together, and everything seems to fit really well, but I am getting the big air bubble, and when I drive with the top halfs off, the thing gets pretty turbulent, so I think there might be something I missed. Anyway thanks for the help.

Re: yj top on cj

make sure that the fabric snaps on the rear hoop hook under the bar and snaps tight. To be more clear, take the snaps around the back of the hoop and fold the snap back over and snap it. It must be tight.

I think this is what you are looking for.

Re: yj top on cj

Taz getting lot of press on this one. Taz got lotsa tops.

I assume you have the aluminum rails mounted on the top lip of the tub. The hoops just slide in from the back. The bottom end of the hoops have little stationary “wheels” that fit into the channel on the inside. I don’t remember if they will come out or not with the rear corner pieces on.

It’s not a very good pic for what you want to see but maybe you can put it in paintshop and zoom in.

THAT IS ONE BIG TAZ!....

Good post tho, my Wife found me a softop factory YJ and now my besttop YJ top broke at the top back corner where the door hits, not sure on replacement parts but maybe that factory top will come in handy.
