Hi,

I am curious whether a cj8 scrambler half hardtop and bulkhead will fit a 76 cj7 jeep? The jeep has the eariler style roll bar so I don't thinkit will be in the way...
I am also considering the yj half hard doors with hard (fiberglass) slider windows... (My classic --cute-- full sized doors are a mess... not only are the regulators busted but the metal sheets look bolted, yes, that's right, bolted together to keep from coming apart...)
Anyone know if I would need to fab the bulkhead or doors to fit the cj7?

If anyone has completed a modification that is similar or exact, PLEASE post pics.

Thanks for your wisdom...

I may be wrong... But I think I read somewhere you have to remove the rollbar to make that application work.

Not sure on the Scrambler cab...I considered doing this but didnt do the research. That is back on the shelf as I am getting ready to build a cage that probably wont accommodate the half-cab.
The YJ doors will work, you will just have to change out the strikers on the pillars.

I ran a cj8 hard half top on my 1986 cj7. it and the bulkhead fit good. Had to remove the roll bar and build a new one. I only ran half doors so dont know about doors.
