Tj top clips on a yj?

I have a 94 YJ. The hard top has never been off of it. I was wondering how easy it is to unscrew and screw in the bolts from the hard or softtop to the top of the windshield frame. Has any one ever modified their YJ top like a TJ top how it is just 2 clips from the top to the windshield frame. I read about on a yj if you unscrew and screw the bolts in all the time it will wear out and then eventually not work anymore. please help

Thats the jeep I got. How does the quick release kit work? Is it pretty straight forward?

Pretty easy instructions you need to drill a few holes in the top the windshield frame and the top of the tub then you use the supplied rivets to keep all the pieces in place I wanna day it was like 55$ or something like that

Do you have a soft top that you put on? Can I use it with both hard and soft tops?

I have a safari bikini I use in the summer you have to use the top windshield channel with that but it needs to be removed to use the hardtop or it won't seal it's only a few screws and I've never had any problems with the screws messing up the windshield frame

Lange Originals 020-289 - Quick Hardtop Release Kit for 87-95 YJ Jeep® Wrangler - Quadratec
is this what you have? I want to get one of these so that i can have the newly bought soft top on and take it on and off regularly without the hassle of having to put the bolts in all the time to put it back up.
