You need the targa bar to attach the shoulder belts too.
that Jeep is old enough to not have belts or it may have lap belts.

i did, just unbolt the targa, and bolted the 5 point harness to the roll cage, no reason you couldn't

can't tell from that pic, need to see in the cab, or the air inlet to the heater.

looks like the one that pugfugly yota is sellin, i think it's a 87-8, it's got a 1.3 twin cam in it too, for 2g, WELL worth the money

it wouldn't be too hard and that thing is worth every penny it'll be easier to make something than find a good stock window frame
