Hello everybody!!!

YOU've got a great side over here!!!

AM new in the Jeep World, but I Do Understand!!!

I've got a '98 4L sahara soft top with full doors(factory condition).

Can somebody tell me (100%) if the '03+ factory hard top fits on my model????

Depends on the 03+ im pretty sure, i have a 97 and ive have bought some parts such as my soft top off of a 03. i think that they changed the tops in 05, but im not too sure on that one, but i am pretty sure that 97-04 were the same exact size and the parts were interchangable.

Hope that helps you out a little.

bltracer WROTE:

"03 Hardtop fits my 97, its on it right this moment... I hope =)"

=>SO IS THIS A "YES" OR "NO" ??????????????

I don't want to spend bucks on something that "might fit".
I've been told the fixing brackets(latches) from the driver side (front) are different also the rear end (tail gate side)!
From a search I did, I found that there are 2 type of factory hard tops:
'97-'02 & '03-06.
Are these 2 interchangable???(NO modification to be done)

Yes, it'll swap on. You may have ventilation issues though. 03+ hard tops don't have the vents in the rear corners of the top. The vent on 03+ TJs was relocated to the rear gate. Without the vent, you may have difficult closing the doors or with airflow through the vehicle while moving.
