I have an 88 yj with a soft top. The top is not the rounded version, it's the squared one. I'm buying full doors so I was wondering where I can find a top and hardware for it. Preferably grey with tinted windows. Also kind of want to find one on eBay to save a little bit of money.

if you put a family roll cage in from a newer yj, you can get a softopper

I don't feel like working on anything at this time so i sold my yj.

Is there any modifications for the squared off top because I've been looking for family style roll bars but I can't find them?

I'm pretty sure Bestop makes what you want. Go to www.quadratec.com and run the softtop advisor.

My Bestop has rounded corners. I use half doors, but they have the rounded corners which I think are similar to hard doors. Not positive on that.

If you find a grey soft top with the round corner and tinted windows, get 2 and I'll buy the other one

I looked for a grey top of any kind just a couple of years ago
The only one I could find was the Pavement ends flip top without tinted windows
It was supposedly the last of the only 3 grey ones left in the country
At the time, Besttop said they discontinuted grey some time ago with no chance of them again

Just buy a black one, install it, and wait for 6 months. It will be a nice gray.
