Mine looked really cool until the tree fell on it. I bought it with the top already cut off.

I'd like to make my 4 door a soft top, need to get with one of the boat canvas places down. I was thinking that if I can make the upper door window frames fold like the little jeep soft top ones, that would take care of one of the problems. It's still just a thought

another thought is these "frameless" soft tops for the little jeeps. They attach to the whindsheild frame and the roll bar. Now I would not do a soft top for our rigs without a full roll bar set up, so there is another thought. Man, don't get me going, I need to finish up the current project first, stroker 4.7. (I would like to keep my roof rack so an external cage is another option)

Are you talking about the Bikini tops for CJ's, YJ's, and TJ's ? If so, these don't seal anywhere except the windshield.

No, there is actually frameless soft tops, you can tell because the rear slopes down a bit.

I'm guessing this would be for a TJ or a JK, never seen or heard of one for a cj/yj. They would still need to use the plastic around the door for sealing.
