Question Will a 2006 Wrangler Hard top fit a 2002 Sport?

Hi all,

New Wrangler owner and my first post on the forum. I have a question I was hoping someone might be able to help me with. I

have a 2002 Wrangler Sport with a tan soft top that is basically coming apart at the seams.

I've been planning to to replace it with a hard top for the periods when we get a lot of rain and and then buy a bikini top for running around on the island during the spring and summer.

I've been keeping a eye out on Craigslist and have found a hard top for a 2006 Wrangler (Limited??) that I'm interested in but I'm not sure if it will fit and in my searching I have found a number of posts that say it will fit and a number of posts that say it won't fit

I was hoping someone might be able to provide me with a more definitive answer.

Thanks

Gordon

If it's for a Limited it will not fit your Jeep. The limiteds have an extended wheel base compared to your Sport. In other words the top will be too long. Welcome to the forum and congrats on your first Jeep!

Dang!!!!! Oh well back to looking. for the reply and welcome Rubicon2, you saved me a long drive through island rush hour traffic.

Now that I've finally taken the plunge and posted to the forum instead of just lurking I'll have some other questions for you grizzled and well worn Wrangler owners

Cheers,

Gordon
