soft top for YJ
 
hey guys, something is just confusing me about soft top!!
i have a 93 YJ full doors with hardtop, for the summer, i will buy a soft top, but i don't want to buy the half door, cz i installed electrical window and remote lock for the full doors, besides, i don't like the window in the half doors, ! so, i just wanted to ask before i buy the soft top
can i install it on a full doors, or i need to make changes! and thanks in advance
Regards

A Bestop Supertop should work.

I have a Bestop for my YJ and it works really well with my full doors. It's not a Supertop but it came with my Jeep so I didn't have to buy one.

Most likely you will need to buy soft top hardware, which can get pricey but it will work no problem. Get one that says it works with full steel doors.

Softopper doesn't require any hardware (frameless; your family roll cage is the frame) and is designed for hard doors.

X 2. I have a Softopper and I love it! Goes well with the full doors and the half doors if you have rounded corner uppers

Get the Bestop Supertop. Period.

Bestop's Supertop comes with all the bows and hardware to install. Takes about a half hour to remove your hardtop and install the bestop hardware and canvas. Your first time is a little longer, due to the canvas being tight, but a little warm weather will ease installation. If shopping for a top, I found it easies to do some internet shopping. I'm on my second top Bestop right now. 1992 YJ Renegade, converted from hardtop to softop.

The Softopper won't work for me, as I've converted from the OEM roll cage to a jungle gym. But for what it's worth, the Bestop has fold-down bows which easily store out of the way, if you want to fold the canvas down.

Soft topper for sure!

Looks good. I love how it is both a soft top and a bikini top in one.

No, I meant like the back corner on these uppers. Bestop or TJ uppers. The stock YJ uppers have a squared off rear corner that won't seal with the Softopper.
