Any need for a 2nd hardtop?

Hey guys,

I can buy a hardtop for my TJ locally for $250, in good shape. I already have one, but that seems like a great deal.

Is there any reason you can think of that would help me justify buying a 2nd hardtop?


Thanks!

re sell for the average going price and nearly (if not) triple your money.

Yes buy it. It's an investment.

What he said. Buy it, then resell it. Use the $500 you make on sale and put it back into other good stuff for your rig.

Or if you have some space to store it, keep it until the fall and the price will go up even more.

No need for the first one. They just take up space.

Part of me says "buy it", but might feel bad about "screwing a buddy" if you are getting it that cheap....but IMO the only reason to buy it would be to sell it...and if you sold BOTH could get almost $2000 out of the whole deal....I had a hardtop once decided I don't "need it bad enough to store it 8 months out of the year"!!!!


but am sure it is a little different up there!!!
