Bikini Top Mis-Match

Will a strapless Bestop Bikini top for a 1994 YJ fit an 89 YJ?

well, I don't know for sure...but I would think so. The cage differances are mainly in the rear. With pre-92 having the diagonal bar, and 92+ with the complete hoop.

So it might work, you could always return it if it dosen't

'91 YJ Mangler w/ too many mods...and yet not enough ;)

Check out the differences of the roll cage on these two photos . . .

These are both Bestop products.
Hope the info helps.

Looking back at these photos - I think a '94 top would probably fit on the '89 but a top for an '89 wouldn't fit on a '94.

Excellent diagram!
Yea I thought it was odd that they sold two different models of the bikini for the two styles of YJ.

This is a used top and cheap so I'll be the beta tester to see if it works.

Keith - You can make it work...I have faith in you! Just use that head of yours and rig something up...
It is all about saving money and making those little things work so you can spend the extra $ on the really cool stuff!!!

If it doesn't work, you can always get a windshield adapter channel from JC Whitney for under $19. They go by year, so just tell them your year and who makes the bikini.

95 YJ (slight mods)

95 YJ, 31 x 12.5 ProComp ATs / AR767 wheels, stock 4.10s, 2 1/2" Rough Country Suspension Lift, and huge rusty basketball sized drain holes.
