Hardtop Reinforcing Kit

Know Where 2 Jeep | Part Number: KWJJO100
  • Technical Details

    • Fits 1987 to 1995 YJ Wrangler
    • Securely keeps hardtop fastened to the windshield frame by using a threaded channel
    • Quick and easy to install
    • Comes with detailed instructions

If you have ever removed the hardtop or soft top from your CJ-7 or YJ Wrangler, then you’ve probably noticed that the factory self-tapping screws along the front edge of the top eventually strip out. The Hardtop Reinforcing Kit effectively secures the front edge of the factory hardtop by substituting the 7 self-tapping screws for a rugged, threaded backing strip with stainless steel machine screws. Once installed, the kit does not need to be removed, and switching from hardtop to soft-top is not a problem. The kit does not get in the way, and the reinforcing strips are not visible from inside or outside when either a hardtop or soft top is on. The Soft Top Reinforcing Kit secures the Windshield Channel in place by replacing the self-tapping screws with threaded rivet inserts and stainless steel bolts. Quick and easy to install, these kits include everything you need and detailed instructions.

      This product does come with the detailed instructions, but I can give you a quick run down.
      Drill out the 7 holes in the w/s frame with the 15/64 drill bit provided.
      Attach the 3 backing strips (with threaded holes) with the 2 sided tape.
      Set the top on and tighten the screws up.

      The part number you are looking for is #S/B90101. If you current holes are not in good condition just drill new ones 1/4" from them. I did this on my YJ frame for the new windshield channel.
