Quick question on YJ soft tops
I'm looking to buy a soft top from someone who has full steel doors, however my jeep will have half-doors with a soft upper doors. My question is...are all YJ soft tops exactly the same, or are they different near the door area based on whether it's full or steel doors?

I believe the tops are different between half and full doors. The half doors upper half is rather square and the full doors are rounded.

Would that mean the soft top itself would be different? By that I mean the rest of the soft top, not including the upper doors.

ya, the difference is the door opening. the round and square are not interhcangeable. well they will go on, but leave a huge gap.

OK, so bottom line...If I eventually want half doors, don't buy a soft top that came from a jeep with full doors.

Do they make a filler for this large gap? Or do I have to buy soft doors for the summer with my soft top? My hard Top is made for my steel full doors?

Not 100% sure but the best top brands are all rounded at the top so you can run full steel doors or thier soft uppers.
