CJ transition to YJ and a YJ to a YJ

There are some changes from AMC CJ7 to AMC YJ to Chrysler YJ that are hard to track. What is different from an 87 to 88 soft top frame? battery and tray? Transfer case and speedo parts? consoles? Both side seats being easy entry, etc? I have really resolved all the above with the exception of.

Back to the soft top question. What really changed? Why is a 87 replacement top different from a 88? I have what I believe to be a true 87 frame vs. a 94 frame. I still have not found the difference.


If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.

87 side windows slide into a channel from the top at the b pillar. Later years used the plastic slot thing the same as how it fits to the tub. I bought a replacement center hoop from jeep for my top when I needed a replacement as the 87 specific top that was available at the time was a couple hundred bucks more.

That was like 19 years ago btw. I'm sure you probably can't find those new oe parts any more.

(sort of off topic but I've been meaning to ask for months.. what year did they move the 4WD indicator from above the steering column, to the center dash gauges?)

Silicone, the thinking man's duct tape.

My 87 has a clock that is non functional of course. Crazy thing. The clock stopped and is stuck at 4:20.

This place fixed my Mustang clock. They converted it to quartz (whatever that is) but it still looks like it did. Keeps perfect time now.
It bugs me when stuff doesn't work.
