YJ door surrounds?

Just bought a YJ with a hardtop, going to do a soft top. Are there door surrounds that I will need similar to the TJ. If so where would be a good place to get them besides junkyard

Nope...

You'll want to get a soft top specifically for your door style

Ive got full doors but what do the sides of the soft top connect too? Like they do on the door surrounds for a TJ. That is what has me baffled there's got to be something else for the sides of the soft top windows to connnect too. Maybe I just need to call Rampage or Bestop

Your case sounds similar to mine. I picked up full doors for my YJ that already had the square soft doors. That being said, there is a gap that needed to be filled since the full doors are rounded. Notice the gap on the passenger side.

My advise is to get bestop or rampage full door soft top kit. Do it right from the get go to save yourself headaches. Also welcome to the wonderful world of shouting at your passenger.

The soft top will have the framework with it...
Bestop supertop has rounded door openings that work well w full doors
Oem yj tops have square openings for square uppers on half doors

A good time for me to recommend the Bestop Sunrider. Absolutely love mine. Fits with hard doors. The flip back top is awesome and the whole top goes up and down super easy. I am modifying some tj uppers to work with my new half doors

Softopper tops are designed for hard doors but they use the roll bar as the frame if you run the family bar.
