It's not easey,yet its not too bad. start with aquality cloth top.most supplers will give instructions.MTmanufacturing in Rhode Island supplied my top.there number is 1-401-789 0472,fax 401-7895650.Good luck.

AnswerThe top is only part of the whole project. You will also likely need to consider replacing the pad and sock plus the headliner. Tension cables are also part of the equation. If you have some experience, are handy with tools and/or have a knowledgeable friend willing to advise you, go for it. You can save almost half the price of an upholstery shop job... I was quoted about $1400.00 by three different businesses. It is not a one-day gig. Be perpared for some challenges and spring for the StayLast canvas top if budget permits. AnswerI am currently half way through the process of replaceing all the fabric on an '92. There is some good information in the cabrioletandcabrio group on Yahoo. We took lots of pictures as we carefully took the old one appart. Don't cut the webbing that locates the rear bar just above the rear window. We spent most of one day taking everthing apart and so far have the headliner installed with the foam padding laid over top. Plan on 2 days if you are the type to take things slow and easy which is recommended in this project. So far nothing has been unreasonable do do at home. That said I am only half way done but since most of what I have found online talks about just replaceing the outer part I think it will not be too bad to finish.

Soft top, Cabriolet, drop head or a roadster.

yes it will, 97-06 will fit. i have a 98 and i put a soft top on it from a 04

Yes, they are both TJ wranglers, the top should fit

As long as you have had a soft top on before and have the door surrounds it will fit right on they are both Jeep wrangler TJ. The soft tops are the same from 1997 to 2006.

No, the 94 top won't fit a 97. In 1995 the top design changed. The years that are interchangable are 89-94, 95-98 and 99-03.

yes the 94 tracker hardtop will fit the 93 tracker, they are interchangeable from 1989 to 1998 you also can put a hardtop on a tracker that has a soft top(take soft top off first)

No it will not, 1976 the body and windshield changed a bit and a 73 soft top or hard to will not fit.

A cabriolet is an automobile with a retractable roof, or a carriage with a folding top pulled by a horse.

No TJ tops will not fit on a YJ

What other years will my 1999 jeep soft top fit!

yes.. I have one on my 1982 cj7

if it's the same size it will fit actually.

No It won't fit unless you use the 76 + windshield with it.

Here are a few links for how-to walk-throughs for replacing the top. And the following link will give you part numbers for any parts of your cabriolet as long as you register. Marty

yes sir. 98 and 99s share the same top.

Convertible, or cabriolet.

Yes. Model years 1997-2006 are interchangeable.

No it should not fit 94 is a YJ and the 02 is a TJ
