Half door compatible with Hard Top?
 
I have an 08 soft top and found a hardtop with the freedom panels for sale and was wondering if I can use it with my half doors? Has anyone done this and are there any other parts I will need to keep a good seal?

I personally haven't done it, but have seen it done. Supposedly it works ok. May not look the greatest, but should seal ok.

I run halves with hardtop. No problems

Thanks for the input! I just picked it up. Anyone know how I can hook up the rear defrost and wiper on a Jeep that didn't come with the hard top option?

You'd need the harness, fluid box and the multi-function switch. And then possibly a dealer flash to make it wwork.

Yes, they make a kit available from the dealer for it. The kit has to be installed and then have the dealer activate it with their scan tool. You could save some money by shopping around for the best price on the kit and install it yourself. Then take it it to have it activated.

Now I can say I have done it :bop:. Picked the hardtop up last week. Looking forward to using it this winter! Doesn't look bad IMO.
