CJ-10 Roof?

Where can I get just the roof from a cj-10? I cant seem to find any info anywhere. I need to purchase one for my halfcab YJ project. Any help is greatly appreciated.

You mean a CJ8 roof? You can buy them from a company called Gr8tops, http://www.gr8tops.com/ Otherwise you'll have to find an original CJ8 half top and bulkhead. The tops aren't hard to find, but the bulkheads are. You may be better off with a gr8tops kit.

Because that would make more sense than trying to find a CJ8 roof, right? With the wealth of CJ-10s in the US, he should have no trouble.

CJ10 roof you're going to have to get CJ10 or overlander doors too. CJ7 and CJ8 doors are rounded at back corner. CJ10 doors have a square back top corner (as do Overlanders). Good luck finding glass etc for a CJ10 door if you don't find a complete top/door set.

I'm sure that is what walker was getting at since he's a Scrambler junkie.

Exactly, but according to a TJ owner with 160 posts, these tops and associated parts are as common as squirrels.

I was going to use my yj doors and make a rounded corner piece for the cj10 metal roof, I think it will look better.

I would have to agree that it would be easier to find a CJ8 half-cab and then you wouldn't have to mess with anything for the doors.

That would work. Jscherb did something similar with his Worldcab if I recall correctly.

I'm not sure what relevance the vehicle I drive or my post count have on this subject. But since I used to work on CJ-10'a nearly every day for over 7 years I'd say I know a little about them.

OP. I'd try searching Defense Reutilization and Marketing. Not sure on finding just a roof, but I can just about guarantee you'll find a few 10's.
