Jeep Wrangler YJ Factory Hardware

Factory Hardware

The Jeep Factory Soft Top Hardware on the Jeep Wrangler YJ from 1987 to 1995 is characterized by two rear upper frame sections that pivot at two separate lower points. They are connected to each other by "spreader" bars which "spread" open from a "V" shape to a straight line as they increase tension to the soft top. When fully expanded, the frame sections are basically straight up and down and parallel to each other. Also note, the fabric soft top attaches to the factory style rails above the doors using "snap" type fasteners.
