    Default M35A2 Soft Top Conversion

    I just purchased a Kaiser Jeep M35A2 with an original hardtop but would like to also have a soft top. What do I need to install a soft top? I will appreciate any suggestions.

    The frame consists of, over the door bows and back bows (the back bows on the m35 are a Y shape except the one bar comes striate up and the other points back. The one that points back is attached to the one that goes striate up) and other than that im not shore ( I like m37s)

    Probably find someone or two that would trade. Some folks really like hardtops. I scrap hardtops anytime I get them.

    I searched and searched for a hard top when I built my deuce a long time ago, but could never find a usable one. So I have been running a canvas top until recently, when I finally found a NOS hard top. Well I put it on, and I hate it. It is hot, noisy, and un-tactical. I'm with Recovry4x4. Canvas rules.

    Those tops look like they fit REAL good. Told ya the rear window was not a "D" shape.
