Most YJ's use the "old style" rollbar, with the single hoop behind the driver and the lower support bars. A top stretched over those bars would never work. TJs and JKs use the full sport bar, that extends past the back seat.

There are a few YJs with the full sport bars, but not many.

The Trektop style tops will not work on a YJ or CJ.

I also have the family sports bar but I have a frame-less soft top. Is this the kind of top you are looking for?

No its from Califonia tops they have a really bad name for they're poor customer service. The guy likes to tell you he is shipping it that day but then waits a few months. But I have had the top for about 6 years and it is still like new I love it. When this top is junk I think I am screwed because I don't want another framed top.

Are you suggesting that something from a competitor is so expensive, that Bestop should make it instead? This may be a first!
