I'm not sure If the windows are the same dimensions. I know the side windows on yj tops are larger....it's possible the rear is.

The top that you have is from a CJ7. You can tell that by 2 ways from a YJ top.

1. The side widows in your top are flat glass, and a YJ has a taller window that has a curve in the top of it.

2. The area behind your window doesn't have the vent in it, like a YJ does.

As for your question about the YJ back glass fitting, NO...the YJ rear window is taller, my rear window is only about 1/2" down from the rear roof light. If it wasn't below zero here right now, I would get you a proper measurement, but I can tell you that I purchased a CJ rear hatch cause mine had the t-handle rusted beyond repair, and it was about 2 inches short or working.

No, they both have a T- handle. And your link is for a YJ window and really pricey to me. Do you have the hinges and bottom part from your rear hatch, or is it just missing completely? You can get a piece of tempered glass cut at a window shop and they can even drill the appropriate holes in it if you have the hardware.
