98 TJ vs. 2003 TJ

Will a hard top off a 2003 TJ Sport fit on a 98 TJ?

Thanx

Just wanted to make sure, I am seeling a 2003 hard top, and a guy wrote interested but wanted to make sure the 98 would accept the 2003 top.

So it will bolt right up?

No mods?

Thank you for anyhelp

You could trade tailgates as well, that is where the vents are now on the newer TJ's. Someone will probably tell you that the windows are going to explode or something stupid, personally I don't see how... But you probably will have to slam the doors a little bit harder with no venting in the cabin. My $.02 would be to just pull the floor plugs.
