Been watching Craig's list for a soft top. My first choice would be a 2013 premium top from a dual top that somebody's never even put on. But those will be rare and more expensive.
Found a top listed for $250 and thought man that's cheap lets see what it is. Ill buy it now and just keep looking for a 2013 premium top and sale this one when I find one.
I email back and forth and he claims its off a 2012 and has only been used for one summer. The jeep it was for has been traded in for a 2013 soft top jeep and they no longer need this top. It has everything needed to put it on my jeep. Awesome. Head out to meet him ASAP.
Drive out only to find its a bestop (had been under the assumption from the Convo that it was a genuine jeep top) has no door surrounds (I specifically listed door surrounds when asking what hardware came with it) and the side windows were pretty scratched up.
I did not buy it. Oh we'll the search continues.
One question. Are the tops for sale on Craig's list usually selling with the door surrounds? I assumed so but now I'm wondering. This is 2nd person I've talked to selling without them. (The first one let me know in an email so I didn't pursue the sale any further)
I sold my stock soft top for $100. The windows were scratched up pretty good and the top had mud stains as well. I included everything needed to install it, and even at that price, it still took about a month to sell on CL.
