Are you talking about the yj hatches with the defrosters and the wiper?

Well, here's the results...












It's not perfect, but it will definitely work until I can find a yj hatch.

Mounting cj top to yj?

How did you mount the front of the cj hardtop to the yj windshield? any pics would help tons. I have a cj top on my 93 and the front just bounces up and down while I drive, I cant figure out how to secure it down?
