So Im now a proud owner of a 1977 CJ7 and it came with a hard top. Problem is im in the market for a softy so I can "take my top off" on my way to work and encase it rains ( I live in miami) i can throw her on. So I found a soft top only problem is its for different years..but will it fiit???? O.o Click the link below to to see it.
No. THAT one won't fit but there are others that do. You really do need one that is model specific.
Also, FYI, that is just the fabric part of the top. It does NOT include the frame, which you didn't say whether or not you have. This particular piece is for Jeep owners of a different year who ALREADY HAVE a soft top and need to replace the fabric.
If all you have is the hard top and want to go to a soft top, plan on spending about $800-$900. This INCLUDES the frame. My preference is BESTOP, but there are others. I like BESTOP because of the rail system it uses. It allows using their Bikini tops without modification.
I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!
As Adman02 said that top will not fit as it is for a TJ, not to mention it is only the top no hardware. If you need everything then you need look for something that included the harware. So figure about $500 -$700 new. I have a hard top with full hard doors. I went with a used YJ top for $100. It was one designed to fit with hard doors so no door surrounds are needed. It does the job and was cheap. As you look for new tops watch the price and look, and if it says replacement it more then likey does not inclued the hardware.
