These guys have new ones, kinda spendy. I just sold the factory H/T off my TJ for a grand, so the price that includes shipping for something really one off is relative.

I spoke with them a few weeks ago and was told there out of the rear door glass for the tops they make. I like the look of the Overlander / Postal top better anyway but there sure hard to come by.

Do you have any pix of the Overlander / Postal top? I'm curios as to how they look.

Here's a few... The third one is the Alaska Postal with no side windows. I'm looking for one of those I can use to make a left hand drive Overlander.

Forth is of one I came across up here yesterday. It's in Kenai though and about 500 miles south of where I can store and strip it befor shipping parts to Oregon. Someone hacked it up with a sawzal! It was too far away anyway but thats just wrong....

The Overlander CJ8 was for export only. Only 200 or so went to Alaska for the postal service in 84. All postals and most all Overlanders were RHD as far as I can tell but I have seen a few pictures of LHD Overlanders. I just like the looks of these tops much more then the inverted fiberglass bath tubs. Oh and the rear barn door is way cool too. Much better then a lift gate and drop tailgate in my opinion. Comes apart in three sections too for easy storage. But eh side doors with the squired off corner are hard to come by. But I have seen people modify the top to include a filler piece to use CJ7 doors and that opens up allot of 1/2 door options.
