I'm not sure if the rear door on a 87'90 is the same size as 94.
I am not sure if the angle of the front windshield changed for your year and the shape of the top of the doors may be different.
If all of those match, the following would be true:
The top is held down with 8 Bolts along the Body tub and 7 screws on the windshield. The rear window is over lapped by the back door so it cannot be opened without opening the back door first which is lockable.
As far as not using the latch, I am not sure how tight the fit would be between the door and the Window. What I would do, is get some Fairly thick weather stripping and put it the bottom of the window. that should keep the window pushed in and the two them from rattling together.
Another thing about the window not latching, it may or may not pop up at you once you release the rear door because the pneumatic window lifter may push it up, or it may stay down if you are lucky if the angle is just right.

But then, I'm also careful to park in the same place every day, so I can remember where my car is. Possibly unrelated fact: I went to school in Eugene Oregon.

If the upper doors with the rounded corners dont fit you need to adjust the stops on the bars that slide into the lower doors to properly angle the upper doors.
If the top has a vent behind the side windows its a YJ hardtop. If there is no vent then its a CJ top. If the liftgate has a T handle on it it is a 91 or older top. 92 or newer there is no T handle on the liftgate. A CJ top will fit a YJ but you need to change the rubber pieces that sit in the front corners of the CJ hardtop to fit the YJ windshield frame.

Thanks for the information, I'll do so as soon as I get the chance.

I can't remember the little trivia things that our customer support team uses to identify hardtops on a YJ. Things like whether it has a rear wiper, etc.
Anyway, take a snapshot of the upper door, the hardtop, and send them to CSBESTOP@Bestop.com. Ask them what your door options are. They will be able to identify what you've got and help you out.

Thank you for the help, my hard top does have a handle in the middle of the glass for the rear window though...I'll check again but I'm fairly sure there aren't any chrysler or Besttop logos...Is it possible that it is a top for a CJ that happens to fit? I'll double check in the morning for the logos but thanks again.

|rcajper||if it is a factory hard top it will have a crysler star in the bottom corner of the side window.87 to 91 will have a handle to open the back glass and 92 to 95 will not have a handle in the back ( do to the 3rd brake light that started in 92) if the upper door sliders do not fit they are prob made by rugged ridge, they made 2 types of uppers . 1 kind fit the factoy soft top . the other was for factory hard tops and other after market sot tops ae..best top super tops. if it is a best top hard top on the vent in the back it will have a best top symbol|

|jeepers92||im betting it is a cj hard top, so im not sure what uppers you would need!|

|ChandlerSL||I can't find any identifying decals or tags on the hardtop, its used and old and not in the best shape too|
|10-21-2009 11:37 AM|
|jeepers92||does the top have a maufaturers tag on it somewhere on the inside?|
|10-21-2009 11:35 AM|
|ChandlerSL||My soft top doors are square and the hardtop doors are rounded but even the rounded upper door halves didnt fit...|
|10-21-2009 11:32 AM|
|jeepers92||are the doors round or squaredin upper rear corner?|

I bought a used hardtop for my '95 YJ under the premise it was a "factory hardtop," went to go put on upper-door halves with glass sliders and they didn't fit! How can I differentiate between a factory hardtop and an aftermarket hardtop, ie: bestop? Right now I have the hardtop on and am slamming my square upper door halves just to get the doors to shut in the mean time...Does anyone know how I can tell which is which? I suspect I have a bestop hardtop and will have to give in and buy their upper door halves...
