Will CJ7 Full Doors & Hard-Top Fit a 95 YJ?

One of my Jeep-friends has a 1995 YJ and knows somebody selling full doors and a hard-top from a CJ7 (don't know the year). Will these fit on his YJ?

OK - so it seems like the full doors from a CJ7 will fit on a YJ, but will the hard-top from a CJ7 fit on a YJ?

As already stated, both the doors and hard top from a CJ7 WILL fit on a YJ.
There are a few things to a aware of though.
1: early CJ's used a "twist" style handle on the doors. If using these early CJ doors, you'll need to modify the striker on the tub of the YJ. If using later doors witht the "paddle" style handles, no modifications are needed.
2: CJ's have a drop down tail gate, and the hard tops on them were designed to close after/open before the tail gate. If you still have the stock spare tire mount/3rd brake light, it can be a little tricky. You'll have to open/close the tail gate and hard top hatch at the same time in order to get the hatch between the tailgate and spare.
3: CJ's did not have the spreader/sport bars (the ones that go from the roll bar to the windshield frame. Because of this, you may have to "clearance" the hard top to fit around the spreader bar mounting flange on the windshield frame.

just for reference, I have a CJ7 hard top and doors on my 93 YJ, here's a pic,

yeah.. about closing the gate and window at the same time... don't do that, i busted my window out (twice) doing this. 1st with the original window, 2nd with a sheet of plexi-glass, and now i'me on my second piece of plexi-glass. i have now learned to just take the spare tire off. then open/close it. i don't ever do that though because the tiny space back there is pretty much useless except for keeping a tool box, a couple bottle jacks and a small subwoofer, and if i need back there, i just crawl through the backseat and get what i need.

now i look back and laugh at myself for being stupid,

LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES!!! it is very tempting to take the easy way and just open it, but trust me it's not worth it, i learned the hard way... 2 times

EDIT: or go buy a $700 swing out tire carrier bumper thingy
