I have a question pertaining to hardtops

I am selling a hardtop for the 2 door unlimited.
A prospective buyer asked if it would fit his 2005 rubicon.
I apologize for my ignorance but if my hardtop is for 2004-2006 models wouldn't his rubicon fall in this category? Or are rubicons diff?
Thank you

No, the difference would be if he also have a unlimited , cause the hardtop of the unlimited model is longer. Maybe he have a unlimited rubiccon and that model would fit the hardtop. check the picture section and you can see the diffenrence btween the normal wrangler hardtop and the unlimited.

Buyer would have to have an Unlimited as well. Rubi or not, doesn't matter, as long as it's a TJ Unlimited.

Here's the most important thing. Used Unlimited hard tops are pretty rare. They were only produced a few years vs 9 years for the regular shorty TJ's.

So, they demand a much higher price. Unless the buyer is a good buddy, you can ask a lot more than a regular SWB TJ top.

I am asking a thousand for it, I though that was pretty reasonable... Do you agree?

The TJ short top goes for 1000-1500 around here. You will have to figure out the market where you are. The same tops back east that I've seen pricing on go for 600-1000.

I was lucky. I found a fellow WF buddy that wanted a softtop setup and we traded! We both won.

Yeah I'm in ny.
It's not in perfect condition just the hardware and pistons guys for back window tailgate are missing.
So after looking around I put the unlimited hardtop on Craigslist for 1000
