Calling all knowledgeable jeepers

Ok, well I posted in the TJ (since I have a TJ) page but got no replies. So.... I figured I'd Try in here and see if maybe we can get a little more collective type results. here's whats up.

I'm relatively new to the Jeep scene and been wandering around on here for a few weeks now gathering ideas and information but haven't really had a whole lot of time to post or make myself known. Something I am interested in but haven't had much luck in finding answers to is parts interchangeability between years and models. As of right now I am a curious about tops. soft, hard, bikini and such. What fits what ? specific reasons some wont work with others what can be done for making stuff work all that good stuff. I am an experienced mechanic and fabricator so I'm not afraid to get extensive with different things but we all know its best to start with comprehensive info for better starting points. I'm mostly interested in info for tops at the moment But any interchange stuff would be great (engines,transmissions,x-fer,axles,hell anything that swaps). My specific application is an 01 4.0 auto (I hate automatics with a passion so I will be placing a 5 or 6sp soon as possible) Soft top, 2'' body lift (also going away soon) 32" tires, 60th anniversary pkg. pics to come soon. thanks in advance for any helpful input. You guys are a great resource and I plan to start making my contributions soon.

Not sure I completely understand your question. Are you just looking for generic information about which tops fit which models, or is there a specific top you are looking at that you are wondering about. Being more specific may help get you an answer.

Very little that fits on a JK is gonna fit on a TJ. Pretty sure a top – hard or soft – is in the "no way" category.

OK, thanks y'all. I am interested in all kinds of info pertaining to what can interchange between models. Not just tops.

For the most part, anything off of a 1997-2006 Jeep will fit on any 1997-2006 Jeep.
Unless you're talking engine parts from 2.5L 4cyl to a 4.0L 6cyl.

Determination: the feeling you get right before you do something incredibly stupid.
