I would like to buy a soft top and i want to make sure i dont buy the wrong thing. I have a hard top now with full steel doors. Is there more then one kind of soft top depending on what kind of doors you have? I found one i like but it says it is a cover with upper doors and is installed on a jeep with half doors. Does this mean i cant use it?

I would say yes, you cannot use them. the half door tops are usually squared on the corner and the steel doors are round. You woul get no seal think it gaps a more than a couple inches.

Let me qualify that. You CAN use it, but you will have to get a set of half doors to replace the full doors while you are using the soft top. the doors are super easy to remove and replace, but you have to make sure you get the right ones for the right year. otherwise the shape of the lower door might be different and the catch bolt might not line up and might even be a different size.

I know bestops site will show you based on what doors you have. I would think the other sites do too.

depends on whether or not. the soft top is stock or aftermarket. Bestop and oters have made replacement soft uppers for steel halfdoors to be used with hardtops.
