a 76 or later top to a pre 76 full top?
Has anyone done this?
Yes you can do this. Several people here have done it. You can even use a full conv. hard top if you use a 73-75 windshield frame. Just do a search for "full convertible conversion" and you should find more info than you'd like.
I've done it. My "73" is a 87 tub. But there are several posts on the subject.
Well I searchedbefore I posted, but even with the proper phrasing, I still didnt see how to be able to use a 73-75 top... Lots of posts on just cutting it off, but I didnt see one for replacing the later top with the earlier top.
here's one post and another post and an oldie, but goodie another post
If you're talking hard top you'll probably have to get the windshield frame off a 73-75 tub and attatch it to your existing tub. If you're doing the soft top conversion you cut off your roof and half cab to a certain point and bolt up the brackets etc. to run the soft top. At least that's what I think you do... I might be able to tell you more next year when I chop my top off and run a full soft top. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
