modifying YJ roll bar for CJ top

I'm getting pretty close to putting my cj-7 hard top on my wrangler. It's my understanding that I need to modify the YJ roll bar, the bars that connect the windshield frame to the rest of the roll bar. What exactly do I have to do to get it to fit. A picture would be nice if possible. Thanks.

You do not need to modify the top to fit a YJ. I have a CJ top on mine. Fits perfect. The only draw back is that the rear hatch isnt notched out like a YJ so if you have a spare tire on you need to open and/or close them at the same time.

I notched my CJ hard top where the brackets meet the windshield for ease of installation and removal.

What year is your YJ ? When shopping for a Bestop Supertop. They market ONE top for cj/wrangler through year 95 !
