Will a CJ-7 Soft Top fit my YJ?

Will a CJ-7 soft top fit my YJ? i have a 93 YJ with the family style roll bar and i found a soft top for 300 bucks. I will do some mods if need be, i just need to know what to do. I have full doors for my hardtop and they are just like CJ doors so that shouldnt be the issue. Thanks, Austin

The tub dimensions are the same. I'm not sure if the CJ used the same belt rails though. I'd make sure that the belt rails matched up first. But the dimesntions of the tub and top of the windshield frame will line up for you.

You also mention ahving full doors. I don;t think that the full doors worked with a soft top until the TJ's.

if it is an old CJ snap style top (with snaps around the tub instead of rails) then don't get it. The bows are not as high as a top that uses rails and I think the bows would not clear a family rollbar.

CJs didn't have soft top w/ hard doors as a factory option.

No but they offered full soft doors. My friend has a set with rounded edges. They came off of his 83 cj7
