Anyone own a four door Jeep Wrangler with a soft top?
    #834571 - 11/05/18 09:18 PM (1 month, 9 days ago)

So I'm going to be doing a project with my four door Chevy Tracker. One of the mods is turning it into a 4-door convertible like a Jeep Wrangler. So I'm hoping somebody with a soft top could measure the width for me and the length of the roof. I could also look at a modded Samurai roof. Or modding a tracker 2 door soft top,lolol. A few different options at my disposal.

Tia!

Looks like a fun project, good luck. Maybe stop in a used lot and ask if you can measure one?

Thanks and i might do that. Also might hit up a pick-a-part. Hopefully i can find a soft top for either a wrangler, samurai,sidekick,or 2 door tracker from 2000 (before 95 for the samurai/sidekick)

Also found this on another fourm.

OP said
I would really like to have a 4 door Tracker/Sidekick with the flip roof section from a 2 door.  I know the 2 doors door is longer than the 4 door.  What I'm thinking is the front of the roof from a 2 door could be cut off at the windshield header back to where the targa bar is.  The side rails would be shortened by the difference in size between the 2 door and 4 door doors.  This assembly would be welded onto a similar cut off on the 4 door. 

Does this sound possible?  What issue am I missing?  Is the windshield angle the same on a 2 door as a 4 door?  Would a Sidekick Sport have the same size windshield and front door area as a regular Sidekick 4 door?

You may be making it harder than it needs to be.  The soft top roof opening is a recessed section that allows the door to seal on the same mating surface configuration as the 2dr hardtop.  Why not cut the roof of the 4 dr inside the door gasket mating surface, dropping in the roof section, and welding it in without disturbing the door mating surfaces.  The open area would extend slightly into the rear seat area, but you would not have to shorten the side rails or the flip top hardware.  The section added to the 4 dr would have to include the latches and seal area for the top header.

The real trick will be getting the top to stay on, you could get a Bikini top, but
those are designed to wrap around the top targa bar on the 2 door.

You would need to modify or have made a top that could be attached to the top,
perhaps with some snaps on the roof section
