Needed: Soft top for CJ with no snap buttons

When my Dad had the CJ repainted, the folks who did the work removed the snap buttons along the perimeter for the old soft top...along with bars...sister accidentally drove over the soft doors. Does anyone make snap-less soft tops? I don't have a rear seat - I was thinking even something with all soft doors and just a cab enclosure, leaving the rear exposed.

With winter approaching (in the Midwest), I just want to be able to drive the Jeep in the winter...with the wife. I don't mind throwing on multiple layers and driving around without a top, but I know she won't!

you should be able to buy some type of package or kit that has the snaps in it, otherwise bestop supertop. Be a lot cheaper to put new snaps on.

I have a Bestop Supertop. It has a rail that gets screwed to the tub. You fold a plastic piece from the top under that rail.

Yup, I run the same top on my CJ5 and had a similar one for a YJ a couple of years ago. The snap screws are cheap though, if you have the rest of the hardware.

Unfortunately, no. I have no idea where the top or doors are at this point...lost during the time at my Dad's place...

I have one in like new condition, with doors. I would call it a nine out of ten. It is missing just a few minor mounting pieces which can be easily obtained. I want $500.00 for it.
Wish you were closer, I hate long distance deals whether buying or selling.
