98 TJ roll cage in 89 YJ?

I can get a 98 TJ cage for cheap. Will it fit and work with either the YJ or TJ soft top? After searching, there seems to be an article in JPmag but I can't find it...

Thoughts? Can fab and weld.

Yes you can make it fit and yes you can fit a TJ top if you get the rollbar in.

There is a thread on here where someone did it, I'll see if I can find it. Its definitely not plug and play though.
