2006 hardtop

A 2006 hardtop will fit my TJ, right? Just bought one, stupidly without checking. But I presume its the same as a 97', that would also fit my TJ. Just want to make sure!

It'll fit unless it's off an LJ.... No vents in the top, so closing your doors might be a little harder.

Well, it would have fit, but after we negotiated a price, he didn't take his posting down, and somebody else offered full price.

<sigh> Who wouldn't like a little more money in their pocket, right?

That's the way the Craigslist deals go. I read that you'll blow the windows out when you close the door with no vents on the hard top on TJ's prior to 2003. Maybe it was for the best.

Pretty sure that's not true, too many other ways for air to escape on a TJ.... They're far from air tight...

nope, don't think it'll fit your Jeep.
you should cut your losses and just let me take it off your hands...


sure wish I could find a decent hardtop here in Illinois.

OH PLEASE!. There is no way you are going to do anything to the windows. Where did you get that BS from.

Hardtop Vents

I got the BS from another Jeep forum. That's why I used the "read" in the sentence.

Will a new hard top fit my 97 TJ? - JeepForum.com

Hahaha, it would be a hilarious short skit, an airtight Jeep that exploded if you slammed the doors.

It's a shame it got away, I was looking forward to sporting a new hardtop. Oh well, maybe it's for the best, I don't have much room to store it in the summer, and I already have two soft tops.
