Deepwoods INC. Hard Top

I got this hard top with my yj and I don't believe its ever been mounted on this jeep. I cant find any information on this manufacture. It has a sticker on the inside of the rear glass that says Deepwoods Inc. Will i need the rubber pieces for the corners of the windshield and my upper door which matches the top doesnt seem to line up right at all. they are fiberglass uppers with slider windows

Take a pic. Someone might have something similar and not know the brand name.

Can someone help me please identify this hard top, I believe it was made for a cj-7. The rear glas has a long piano hinge across the top instead of the two seperate hinges. Also on the sticker inside the lift gate it says it was made by deepwoods inc. in Oneida TN. I cant find any info on this company. I was also wondering how i should attach it to the windshielf frame and if I need the rubber corner seals?>??? Any help would be greatly appreciated

It almost looks like a JCWhitney top I had for mine when I was in college. I sold the top with another Jeep and kept the old CJ top I had. But that is similar to it. Does the back window have two latches? One on either side? I ask because the CJ factory top I kept had one handle in the middle, that operated the two latches on either side, but the JCWhitney top had a handle on either side. If that makes sense

I did a quick Google search and a Mulch company in VA pops up with that name. A business directory in Oneida, TN had this:

deepwoods inc. - deepwoodsinc.com - oneida, TN Business

I think one of the PO's may have worked for this company and slapped the sticker on the glass. I don't think it has anything to do with the actual top.

Or maybe it was a company that did manufacture Jeep hard tops and has since went out of business, so these guys took the name. Highly unlikely, but I guess it's possible .

Can you snap a picture of that rear hinge for the lift gate? I would like to see that. The only ones I have ever seen have had the two hinges on either side.

The corners should be really close to factory so, I'd just order up a set of those seals. For mounting the top I'd suggest one of these... Kwick Kit

I've always thought the Kwik kits were a bit over priced. You can pick up those latches at most hardware stores for a few bucks a piece. I found a couple a few weeks back when I was thinking of going with that method of attaching the hardtop to the windshield. It would save you some cash to spend on those corner seals (which usually run a little over $10 a piece).

It might have been made for a Cj7 but it's not an original Cj7 top thats for sure.

Deep Woods was in Oneida TN and was a small company that made jeep , suzuki, tracker Tops, doors etc back in the mid to late 90s. There was also another company called Fleet air and Creative Glass Works also in Oneida at the same time making all kinds of Fiberglass parts for all kinds of Cars, trucks etc.

Im located about 40 miles from Oneida and trade on Jeep wrangler , Land Rover Discovery and other Rare and Classic European Imports . 931-349-4480
