all hardtops from those yers will fit, keep in mind the vents changed around 03. the earlier hardtops have vents down the side of the roof the later had the vents in the tailgate. i ran mine with soft doors, wasnt bad from memor, now got full doors though
The vents do help!!!!I have a newer style top on my 97 and have no vents in the gate or the top and the worse thing is the wistleing noise you get from runnimg thr blower motor on high.The next thing is the soft upper sliders poof out everytime you close the doors.....I have fot used to sliding the window open a little before exiting the Jeep but would like to find a set of vents for my top or one for the tail gate.
How much are hard tops in junk yards? If they haven't already been taken of course.

Is there really a need for a hard top. I had one for my YJ and hated taking it off every summer here in NJ. I ordered my 04 TY without one and ordered 1/2 doors and run all rear without any problems. Plus I saved the cost of the hard top.
I got mine for free from a friend cause she didn't want it and it had a branch that landed on the driverside rear corner (nothing a little fiberglassing didn't fix). The vents are actually exhausters (they let the air out of the jeep when the doors are closed). I like my hardtop in the winter due to living in oregon (I hate getting into the jeep and having the downpour from pooling on the roof). Its nice to have, I agree that removal and storage sucks but its worth it in my opinion. Oh and my half doors work fine on it...
Keepin the peace.
