I know they were still available in 88, but I have heard that there were some that had 1989 on their title.

Default tin top

so tin tops are not available with efi and coil suspension. i just purchased a 87 tin top for my daily driver and now my wife wants one to use as a daily driver also. i want her to have the newest tin top that was made, so i will be more comfortable for her and my 2 young daughters.
thanks,
sharkbait

Nope, at least not in the USA. EFI started in 1990 and coils were not available until after the last production year for the USA (1995).

The factory removable tops will be a little rough because of their age at this point, but there is a company that started making new ones in full size and sport style. The tops are made by Truck Hardtops and Jeep Hardtop Accessories from Rally Tops 4x4 Sport Utility Hard Tops and they are nice.

The coil suspension never made it to the USA as a factory component, but there are companies that make coil kits for them. The bad part (for your need) is that the coil kits are built mainly for high articulation for off road trail crawling.

If you find a late model Samurai (1990-95) then you will have factory EFI.
