Best answer


The quick answer is YES,it will fit. The CJ7 and the YJ utilize the exact same tub,with some very minor detail changes. The number one change that affects hardtop fitment is the tailgate. On CJ7’s the tailgate is a true tailgate and it drops down. On a YJ it’s not a true tailgate as it is a swing gate with the spare tire attached.

  • On a CJ7 the tailgate closes first, then the hardtop liftgate (aka hatch) then the swingout tire carrier. For a YJ the hardtop liftgate closes first then the swing gate. This is a CJ7, notice how the liftgate of the hardtop closes over the tailgate of the tub.

  • How do I identify a YJ hardtop?

  • This is a YJ hardtop, notice the groove that allows the swing gate of the YJ to open without opening the liftgate of the top. Again, this is a YJ hardtop, notice the areas that have been circled, these easily identify this as a YJ hardtop.
