Is this a CJ hardtop on my YJ?

Just bought a YJ and the top doesn't seem to be made for it. It says "ACME" on the rear. The tail gate won't open unless the hard top hatch is up. The door latches on the body are for a soft top and don't even work with the doors (seller sold me latches for hard doors). Also, would it be possible to repair this top? The glass is at least good. I ask because I'd like to sell it to get some cash towards this new Jeep of mine. Thanks for any help!!

That is an Acme top (3rd party manufacturer) that some people find desirable and it is repairable.

though it was originally made for a CJ, it can/will fit a YJ w/ the correct latches (as noted)

Thanks. I'll have to get my soft top sorted before this comes off. Not sure what to ask for it. I don't expect to get too much for it since it's damaged. Maybe start at $100?

just the top, or top+doors?

-the doors are easily worth 2x that alone

Doors and top. Thanks for the heads up on the value. Hopefully I can find someone local who's interested. It would be nice to get some funds to go back into the YJ.
