2005 TJ UNLIMITED Soft top

I have a 2005 TJ Unlimited. The long wheel base version. It just came with the hard top and I would like to get a soft top for it. I will need all the hardware as well. Can someone offer a suggestion as to what style and type to get or a website that I can purchase one.
Thank you!

In my neck of the woods (New England) they routinely show up on Craigslist in nearly new condition with the occasssional new-in-box top. Price seems to usually fluctuate between $500-$705 depending on condition and time of year. As for what style or type, I'd just get the factory top in grey or black assuming that your profile picture is your LJ (silver). If you want to buy a new one, right now, I believe that Bestop made the tops for Jeep so you could order one directly from them. It'll cost you serious coin though.

There are a couple of aftermarket options. But CL does have them occasionally.

I was gona say the frameless top is nice, maybe by softtopper, rampage, or best top but then again if u want the framed stock top look on CL or any of the jeep online shops they have tons of styles to choose from

I sold my LJ hardtop for $1400 and bought a new Bestop for $800. Left me with some extra $$$ for other toys. As you can see already, you have 2 offers for your hardtop. LJ hardtops are hard to come by, especially good condition used ones. A brand new aftermarket one is $1800 plus freight, so guys are usually itching to buy a good used one. I went with the Supertop NX, and love it. Really like the flip back sun roof portion. I didn't want to buy one off CL, I didn't want to end up with someone elses problem, especially if they didn't include all the hardware; not worth the couple hundred in savings. Good luck!!

I just jettisoned my soft top for the Rampage frameless.. I just like the look and no hardware to work around.
