Any top for a CJ7 or YJ will work, so basically 1976-1995.. there are differences in the cj7 lift glass though, but it will fit

What doors do u have if u don't have full doors then I would go with a soft top, even if u do have full doors ther are a few soft tops that will work with full doors. Hard tops are nice but soft tops are great for summer cause u can take it off in no time by urself hard tops are a pain to take off and put on

Yeah but Id be worried about the rigged rear glass, and depending on where the doors are rusty at it might be more trouble than its worth

That would be a steal on the west coast by the looks on the posting.

On mine ,it bolts to the tub in the rear and the front on the inside there is sheet metal screws above the windsheild,,,and i had to remove all the channel for the soft top...so in the summer i remove hard top and replace the front channel for the bikini top.
