I currently own an 87 YJ. I bought it with 2 tops. The soft top is a best top Sun Rider, flip top. My top is beat up and my upper skins for my half doors are shot. My first question is: 1-what is the cheapest soft top out there that will fit my YJ with the sun rider frame? I DO NOT have the factory frame ....I'm pretty sure that the full hard doors and top are not from a YJ, as the tailgate must be closed first then the back gate/glass closes over it. No side vent either. I'm pretty sure the top and doors are from a CJ, my door corners are rounded. My second question is; 2- what soft top can I buy to go with my full doors? Thanks for all the help

You can buy a Sunrider replacement top from any place that sells soft tops. My suggestion is don't go cheap, since you have the sunrider hardware you can really only use the sunrider top otherwise you'd have to buy the whole kit-n-kaboodle top and hardware. When you say your corners are rounded are you referring to the soft upper doors or the full doors? All YJ full doors are rounded and again there are tons of top choices out there that will work with them.

Thanks for the advice. I honestly don't want to spend a lot of money on a soft top.
