If I remember rightly. The bows on the tops are completely different from the YJ to the TJ. I also believe that the tub widths are different between the two.

Better just to the let the YJ top slide AD.

Aw, just take it off and don't worry about it. That's what hats are for. (If you can keep one on your head while driving topless)

A friend of mine has a Bestop for a 00 TJ that is black and like new. It is in really good shape that he want's to sell since he sold his. If you are interested I will ask him what he would take for it. I am guessing around 400.

Yeah thats kinda what I was thinking. I know it's kinda high but he says it's not hurting anything in his garage and he will find somebody to buy it eventually. He could sell a golden turd to someone.

I'm glad I wasn't out of my mind when I thought that was too high a price.......I was being nice and keeping my mouth shut

Is $400 too high for a bestop soft top? is it a full top with hardware? we were thinking it was going to be about $600 to $700 to get one for Amy's TJ.

BTW, second in line for the turd if it's a good price.

I was looking while back for a replacement top....I want a black one. Found a good looking used one from an '03 for 200$

let me do some research >>>>>>>>>>>>

Best top replacement top 475$
Best top top with hardware 579$

hence my thought process (warped as it is)

It's not really a completely outrageous price. The top is in perfect shape with the hardware. He only had it about a year and didn't run it the whole year, mainly used his hard top, so it would be good for someone wanting just like new and save a few bucks. As for the turd, I don't know the exact price on that, I will have to get back to you all, but I am keeping track with the line, dare has first dibs, skeeter, you now have the #2 spot!!

A complete Bestop Supertop with all the hardware is $761.99 on 4wd.com. $400 may not be a great deal, but it isn't terrible either if it is in like new condition.
