Not going to work, Sell the new top and get a Besttop super top. It will accept full steel doors. Its that or buy a Rampage full door top on Quadratech. I wanted the same for my Jeep and its the only way....

I just emailed a friend of mine, he has a YJ with full steel doors. He just got a new soft top, last month. I know he doesn't have surrounds, but the doors fit flush against the top. as soon as he replies, I'll let you know which one he got.

I would sell the top but I paid 200 for it (got it on sale) and I don't have the change to make up the difference

Thanks tjnewbie, let me know

I think I'll cut metal sheets and cut and mold them to fit bolt them on and then put weather seals on them

My friend's been pulling some long hours this week. he said for me to give him a call this weekend and he'll let me know. I don't think he knows exactly which top it is. He had a local 4x4 customizing shop order it and install it for him when it came in.

Sorry to drop the ball on this, I guess he's to busy to call the shop and ask what top they put on his jeep.

Sell the top and buy a $70 sahara top. Keep a towel in the backseat. Problem solved.

I think he meant a safari top.. and no, that's not a viable solution, lol.
