CJ top on a YJ

I have a 1987 Wrangler with full hard doors and am looking to get a hard top for the winter. Are there any problems with putting a CJ top on my YJ? Will it fit? Will the defroster work? Anyone in or near New York City looking to sell a hard top,preferably black. You can Email me at [email protected]. Thanks for your help.

Re: CJ top on a YJ

As elusive eluded to, Yes the CJ/YJ tops are compatible and the only problem is the rear gate, but that can be rectified,(YJ top gate closes then tail gate, CJ tail gate then top gate) minor stuff.
Do the defrosters work,,,,welllll,,, that depends on whether they worked before you installed the top or not.
