Default M715 tops

Hello wvwryone,
I apologize if this info,is already in here but I didnt see it.
I am a new m715 fan and owner just bought a 67. The one big problem I have is the one I bought has no top on it. I was curious if any tops from similar yeared jeeps,could be made to fit. I'd love to have a hard top and found a 65 j30 jeep,and was wonderong if that would fit? Thanks for any and all info in advance.

There is the really good factory removable hard top that has rounded corners, the roof is basically flat and is two piece. There is the forest service hard top which is basically metal riveted to the soft top bows and can be made removable like I did mine. Then there are the homemade hard tops of which there are many.
