  • What model hard top do I have!

    I recently purchased a hard top and a set of doors for my 91 yj. The top is in great condition except for the rear window. Around the back glass is a metal framing which is rusted pretty bad. Since the rear window has metal framing I think the top is from a CJ7 but I am not completely sure. Hopefully someone can clearify. So I am looking for a place that might sell replacement rear windows for a CJ7 hardtop or if another years top rear window might be able to replace it.

    Metal framing? Hmmm... Don't think our '81 CJ-7's top has any metal framing around the windows... Could be wrong though.

        I believe all CJ hardtops have a metal rear window frame. Mine does, its off a 78 and I'm sure the other 2 or 3 I have had were as well. Sounds like a CJ top to me. I would try Jeep wreckers and places of the like. I'm not sure if anyone sells aftermarket replacement ones. Search around on the net, I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for.

          My 'pre-'82 hard top has metal rear hatch with rust above the glass on the inside also.

            i cant remember where, but the whole rear hatch was only $99.00 brand new.

              Thanks for the info. That is what I thought. So if anyone can direct me to where I can find one on the net would be great. I have been lookng high and low but still no luck.

                Are you talking about the metal lift gate in the back? if so, 4wd hardware sells fiberglass replacements. they fit most cj tops and the early yj tops. (my top is from an 87 yj, but it is identical to the factory cj top.)

                the galss gate won't rust, and it should be lighter than the steel one.
