    I have search many forums in search of either an Orville, Meyers or Kelley Steel Hard Top and have had no luck in finding any post who still have one up for sale. When my father purchase this jeep in 74 he optioned to have the dealership install one since he was going to a cold weather climate but when he moved back to California he sold the steel top and put a soft top on it. Now that I own the jeep I am looking for a steel top to put on it once again. It doesn't matter if it is the standard top or the deluxe top but I am looking for one in decent shape with all the parts. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    I may be way too far north, but I have a Meyers for a CJ5 that I bought to swap parts with the Meyers that came with my CJ6. Not sure of the exact fitment application but I had it sitting (not bolted on) my friend's 72 for one rainy season. It is going to need a little work as it is going to consist of the parts that I choose not to use on my Cj6. It would be quite a bit cheaper than the one above, but it is also 4-500 miles away. Your timing kind of stinks too. I have to go to La Jolla in late October and already booked a flight instead of driving for once.

    Yeah timing does kind of stink ill be on vacation from mid October til mid November. I'm not to worried about the condition of the parts as long as all of the parts are there. Also what are you considering for a price for the top?

    Thank you all for you help on my search for this top so here is another question... will the rear door from a dj5 work on the Meyers top instead of the rear lift gate?

    It won't. The Dispatcher 100 door is flat flat.

    The Meyer top slants slightly from the tailgate to the top.

    Hard top found and purchased... thank you Frank (fesser). Now my questions go to finding the widow felts and seals where would I be able to find either reproductions or noses parts?
