90 wrangler soft top for hard doors?
 
Just wondering if anyone has a yj with a soft top that works with full hard doors? I have a hard top and full hard doors, but recently bought a soft top no doors. This top is for the square upper soft doors and leaves a large gap with the hard doors on. One of the channels for this top from the windshield back to the roll bar is broken, the drivers side, but the passengers side is intact. They are square for the soft doors. Just wondering if those would be molded differently for the full hard doors or if the top woud just have the extra fabric door surrounds. I am thinking about buying replacements, but im not sure what I need. If you have a top that will work with the full hard doors and can answer any of my questions I would appreciate any and all advice. Pics of the hardware on the jeep would be awesome as well.

Thanks for the replies. I really didnt want to have to buy new doors. I would like to have half hard doors so I could just take off the uppers, but I already have full hard doors and soft half doors and didnt want more doors sitting in the garage. Hard top looks good with full doors, soft top not so much but it keeps some of the water out while I build the jeep.

Again thanks for the help.

Follow this link: Half Cab Soft Top Mounting Kit for Hardtop Vehicles by Chrysler and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware-RH3 and you will find the part that you need to make your soft top work with the full door.

I bought mine through the dealership, way back when. The side windows are a different shape for the full doors, and there is a two piece frame that goes around the doors. I think the main top and back window are the same though.

I am getting a soft top soon and somebody mention to me that these are the parts that I would need (have full doors in my YJ now). Could you send me any pics to check the parts (if you still have it thogh).
