    As a part of my wheel well notch (1975 CJ5) , I needed to scoot my roll bar back and now no standard bikini top fits. Are there any members custom making them? I can get the parts to do it but if somebody is already good at it...

    How far did you move it back?

    The CJ-7 (or even YJ/TJ) door opening is wider than the CJ. I'd presume this puts the wheel houses further back, so maybe that would work.

    Is yours the strap kind or strapless?
    The old school strap kind should work regardless.

    Sadly- The old school top that I have has a little sewn in corner for the roll bar to tuck into which is now out of place with the bar moved back. I may try to find an old CJ7 top but I'm pretty sure the windshields are narrower.

    Moved it back about 2 1/2 inches but that was too much to fit anymore.

    Hack an old top off. And add the straps.

    Like the idea but can't find an old top that's wide enough.
