do I put a hard top onto the jeep that had a soft top?
what are my options for doors? do I have to get full doors now? can I keep the steel lowers and just get uppers.. or am I forced to get the full doors when I get the hard top?
my old rag top is unsewing and tearing at highway speeds, and any contact tears it; the windows zippers are unfastening on their own..
inside is covered with dust... hate to see what the rain does with this situation.
Hope I find out quickly I am borrowing the money to pop a hard top onto it asap.
youre in louisiana and want a hard top? whats wrong with you? hahaha just kidding.
yes you can use the lower doors with the hard top, you just have to get sliders from say bestop. i would try to find full doors though. yes you can put a hard top on a jeep that had a soft top. you just take the bows off. and the door frames off.

Gotta agree with the other guys. Hardtops go for around $2,000 on up. Unless it's your preference to have a hard top, you can get a soft top for almost 1/3 of the price (and you can use the money you save to add $1,300 worth of parts elsewhere on your TJ).
This is what Jerry is referring to: Sailcloth Replace-a-top. The specific model number you're looking for is 79121, second from the top on the list on the right-hand side of the page. It includes the top and the half-doors you need.
Quadratec has a sale going on that essentially knocks out the price you'll pay to have it shipped. I would think other retailers would price-match them if you'd rather order through someone else, though. The link I posted is for the tinted windows. The top is also available with regular windows, too.
