Grandpa Jeeper Go to either Rally Tops or Bestop and look at their write up on installation. It's all right there including pictures.

There is a major difference between the YJ and TJ tops, and I haven't seen anyone retrofit a TJ top on a YJ.

If you get upper sliders for the half doors, you should just be able to bolt the YJ top on. I don't know the difference(s) between the YJ and CJ tops.

Isn't running 1/2 doors defeating the purpose of the hard top?
I don't think it's that simple! Your half door tops, if they are like my 95 come to a point at the top rear. The hardtop is rounded. I think you might have to get different upper doors. Maybe sliders would work. Someone else may enlighten you, I really have not seriously looked into it, but I think I'm correct that your upper doors will be different.

MadPatter The soft doors are the ones that you zip up the windows on, the half doors i think are with the bikini top.

Anybody convert a soft top to a hard top?

I have a '94 YJ with a worn out soft top, the winters here in Colorado can be brutal. I have been running a bikini top all summer and winter is just around the corner, I was wondering what is involved in converting to a hard top, but keep the soft upper doors, if possible. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks! Rich
