What soft top works with a full rollcage?

Has anyone had a problem with the soft top if they have a full rollcage?
Don't want to order 1 and it not fit right or rub.
Thanks for any help.

As LumpyGrits eluded - you have to start with the top, e.g. put the soft top on, and start measuring for the roll cage.

If you're using hard doors, don't forget to check for clearance - hard doors come in much further than soft doors... and often interfere with the A-pillar leg of the cage.

As others have said, it depends on the cage. What's a FULL cage?


Fits under this with no trouble...

It's a Bestop. Are you talking about a "Family cage"?

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!

If you have an Hardtop en doors put it on and measure, the softtop
( cj/yj supertop) will fit then for sure.
I used a family bar to modify as full cage with 2 knicked bars extra behind,
still have the space for 3 weekend bags on the Bestop Rack Tray.

If you are ordering a cage kit, call the manufacturer and ask them if it fits under the stock top.

Most cage 'kits' will. But best to ask.
