wrangler hardtop on fiberglass body

I bought a YJ hardtop for my Jeep. I went to put it on but the back lift gate wouldn't fit. There is a lip on the lift gate that goes inside the tailgate on the YJ. So you are not able to open the lift gate unless the tailgate is opened first. Is there anybody that has a fiberglass body(without a tailgate) that has figured a way to fix this problem? Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I ran into that once.I ended up trading the top for some axles though.It would be easy enough to get the tailgate from a wrangler and use it.Other than that, I think you would have to cut the lip off of the top.

Would it work to get a liftgate from a CJ hardtop and fit it to the YJ hardtop?

If it'll fit, I believe that would fix it.

I don't think that the CJ7 one will work. I've never had them side by side, but I believe the YJ one is wider.
