Im under the impression no matter what the answer is, you will find a way to make it work.

I don't think it will fit. You would be very crammed if it did. The roof is to short I believe.

I had an old '67 Commando with the short top, very cool look; I suspect this would be a good look too.

Definitely different; but I have not seen it done before or know what you will run into. Seems to me that CJ8 used a lot of the same front parts as the CJ7; but Ive been wrong before.

I'm thinkin yes, with maybe a little modification, maybe it'll go right in. A cj8 should be the same as a cj7 from the door strikers forward. The only real issue i could think of (besides the roll bar of course) would be maybe the rear wheel wells. Shouldn't be to much trouble though and it'll look awesome. There's a scrambler that i see around here with a half top that's pretty cool lookin.

It will absolutely fit .....just gotta deal with the cage a bit and your rolling.

You will need full hard doors though, or the rounded tops at minimum

I have full hard doors, came with the jeep, Factory hard top.

Hmm, i might buy this and do a custom roll cage.

Now I just have to talk the wife into it, this is money that was allocated for the JBconversions SSYE (which is on back-order).
