Some people get a second donor BII, chop both tops off, and use the donor to make a removable hard top.

If you wanted a soft top, you're only real option is to go to a place that makes boat covers, and talk to em about what you want. They could surely fab something up for you that will fit better than trying to slap a jeep top on it.

jeep cages are much, much taller than the inside of a BII by about 7", and about 1" wider

also the cargo area of a jeep is near nonexistent, so it doesn't really line up with the size of the truck either

i'm not saying you can't, i'm saying if you tried putting a jeep cage in you will need to cut/re-weld it a lot to make it work. At that point you might as well build a cage that is correct
