Soft Doors w/ Factory Hard Top

Hello. I been trying to figure this out for a while and been doing a lot of research but have not been able to find out anything for 100% certain. I dont think a lot of people do this but I would like to run full soft doors with my hard top. I have a 95 yj and a factory hard top. Currently I have full doors but in the summer I would like to run soft doors with my hard top. The doors I am looking at are the best top 2-piece soft doors which are approximately $400. Prior to ordering I want to be certain since it is a lot of money. Does anyone know if the best top 2-piece doors will work with my hard top? Any other suggestions? Thanks for anyones help in advance.

I'm 99% sure they won't line up right. Geoff at Bestop is a member on here, I'd hit him up.

I remember seeing a Bestop video where they explained that their soft windows were designed to be run with factory hard tops...but I can't find it.

Best thing would be to contact them directly and ask.

I think you've gotta run super top comparable door uppers. They're the rounded; not the square.

It looks you should be able to run your hard top and the best top 2 piece soft doors. Best top calls it the 2-Piece Doors for Supertop, Sunrider for CJ-7 & Jeep Wrangler, 80-95.


part number 51783

It has the curved top to fit the hard top and not the square to fit the soft top.

http://www.bestop.com/bestop-product/?p=2-piece-and-soft-upper-doors

after you bring up the link look to the right and click on the part number which brings up a yj picture with the 2 piece doors

the pic is a yj that would appear to work for ya.

If it was the one I seen it was explaining why you can run the supertop with factory hard doors not the opposite.

The picture on the page is of a TJ and last I read those are the uppers that are needed. The TJ uppers have a round corner and an extra kick out near the base that matches with the lines of a hard top. Even though YJ uppers can be round cornered they have a straight back.

Thank you for all the help. I think I might try to call best top today and see what they say. If anyone is interested I will reply to this thread with what they say. Thanks again.

On my 95 I had soft upper and lower Bestop doors for there YJ Supertop. They fit with my hardtop.

Since I store the YJ in the winter I sold the hardtop, and purchased a Softtopper. The soft doors even work with that top.

Current: 95 YJ - 2" BDS, 31" procomp MT's (a work in progress)
07 WK
Previous: 76 CJ5, 93 YJ, 98 TJ

I know I've seen plenty of examples on this forum where the YJ soft uppers from Bestop will not fit a hard top. If you look Here, you will see a huge difference. Those are Bestop soft uppers on a hard half door, but I am sure fitment would be about the same. If you go to Google and type in "site:jeepforum.com bestop soft doors yj hardtop" without the "s, you will get all of the info you need.
