Will it fit?
Question: Will a CJ-7 style liftgat fit onto a YJ hartop?

Reason: I am building a new Jeep with a fiberglass tub with no rear gate, I want to use the YJ hardtop I have, but want to open the back (the YJ I have uses the tailgate captured liftgate for locking.)

So can I retrofit the liftgate, or do I buy a CJ-7 Hardtop?

I have a CJ7 hardtop in the FS forum for $50 :poke:

Needs a good sanding and painting, the seals are bad, and the liftgate is rough... but it works. (or if your lift gate is better swap it on)

Needs the one side window reinstalled as well.

Still easier then all the fiberglass work I would imagine.

No, it won't fit.

Replace the hardtop with a CJ7 style. Or just put a couple lathces on the YJ top. Selling the YJ top and buying a CJ7 top will end up making you some cash, however.
