Around here, used TJ hardtops sell between $1,000-$1,200. Complete softops (frame, door surrounds, top, header and tinted windows) can be found on craigslist for $300-$500. Which is pricey considering you can buy a complete brand new Bestop NX from Quadratec for like $600 with the rebates they offer. Check eBay for completed sales of each to get an idea too.

I paid $300 for my soft top, but up here they are going from anywhere between $250 and $600. Hard tops vary from $300 to $1000, depending on condition and hardware included

IMO wrong time to even think about this, most people are loking for HT in the late summer early fall. But you already have a "buyer" and he wants your HT. IDK but IMO, I would try and convince him to give me cash of about $500 and let him keep his ST..than you can get a BRANDNEW ST...like the Bestop Frameless with all the hardware you need and don't take a chance on his old top that may have issues!! and he still has 2 tops!! you are doing him a favor!! LOL

All depends on the value of each. Assuming your hard top is in average condition you can figure on at least 800. However, the bigger question is what type of soft top is he looking to trade? The material, brand, hardware, & condition can vary greatly.
