Bucket List Item to complete Help on Question needed

I'm a new member looking to fulfill a bucket list item. Have two children in high school, have wanted a jeep all my life however life's realities always made it a dream instead of an option. Was diagnosed with a brain tumor 2 years ago, have undergone radiation and chemo treatment for last 20 months. Have a 50 50 chance of dying of heart attack in my 70's which is a major improvement from original diagnosis. Thanks God for National Institute of Health.

Anyways I'm now looking to fulfill my dream of owning a Wrangler! Been doing the research, want something used that I can build/project. I've found a 2001 Wrangler Sport Hard Top in great condition, low miles, ect for a great price. I've always wanted a soft top!

Question: Can the hard top be easily converted to soft top and vs versa?? I know new models out the door could be equipped that way but what about after market???

Thanks to all who reply and looking forward to being active in the forum.

Kris

Yes. It shouldn't be too bad. Soft tops are about 5oo bucks and the hardware is 250 to 500 depending on what you get. Taking hard top on and off a TJ is actually pretty easy so might not even need the soft top if you don't mind getting wet now and again.

Because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. I suggest you check out this forum area and post your questions there, I think you'll get a better response.

Actually I do, I know it's kind if impersonal but I use to help new folks head the right direction for help.

If you are interested in the feature: You can have what's called "canned replies". At the quick links drop down menu at the top of the page, select "Edit Your Details". Half way down the page on the left side under the settings and options menu, select "Edit Your Canned Replies"
