Guys, I have a set of steel 1/2 lower YJ doors and a Bestop Supertop. I want a soft upper that will fit these doors and the soft top. Bestop seems to have two options. A 1/2 soft upper that is made for a YJ steel lower and will fit the curve of the Bestop Supertop soft top. They also have a two piece soft upper and lower door set as well.

I want to know if the soft uppers from this two piece set will fit the YJ steel lowers that I have? Anybody know?

Thanks in advance!:thumbsup:

My guess...and this is absolutely a guess...is that they would fit. From the looks of it on the website, the shape of the upper for both the steel door and the bottom soft door is the same. I would guess that from a manufacturing perspective it would be in their best interest to only have to produce one model for the upper.

You could always call them. :)

From my experience with Bestop, this is WAY too much to assume from them. I have had 3 sets (6 doors total) of upper and lowers that were all MADE to be MATCHED SETS and not one upper/lower combo actually fit together properly.

I have both of the items that you are talking about. The uppers from the 2-piece soft doors WILL NOT fit on the YJ half doors. The posts on the soft door set uppers are straight down. While the three posts for the ones made to fit the hard YJ lower have a bend in them to allow for the thickness of the metal doors. I would take pics to show you, but my CJ is currently in the hospital getting a heart transplant.

Thanks guys.
I ended up going with just the soft uppers to fit my hard YJ lowers.
They'll be in Missouri next week if you want to see them. :bacon:
