Tj unlimited hard top question

I have a 2006 LJ and I'm looking to sell the hard top off of it, and buy the Bestop Trektop NX. My question is does anyone know what these usually go for? I'm not looking to rip anyone off or make a killing off of it, I'm just trying to figure out what a fair price would be. It's in pretty good condition, it does not leak, the rear wiper and window defroster work and everything. If anyone can shed some info on this I would greatly appreciate it.

LJ hard tops demand a premium price vs other hardtops because they are hard to come by.

LJ's were only made for a few years,(04-06) and not in the numbers that the SWB TJ's were produced (97-06).

I saw a local Jeeper on one of the forums that put his LJ hard top up for sale just a short time ago. One of the local used Jeep/Truck dealers snatched it up for $1500!

Yea I know all about the differences between the two haha, I have never seen anyone selling a hardtop for an LJ. Only have seen regular Tj tops for sale, which I've seen people sell them from $500-$1000 depending on the condition, but the unlimited is longer and it is kind of rare so I really didn't know what these ones typically sell for. $1500 would be great haha

Haven't looked lately, but they sell for around $1K here. Contemplated selling mine, but I decided to hang it from the ceiling just in case. Hell, for $2K, I'm pretty sure I could have one made out of fiberglass or metal that would actually look better. I think they look to "puffy"... When people say they don't like the looks of LJs, it is usually because of the hardtop.

Just sold my LJ hardtop about a month ago. I was told by several from Michigan and Wisconsin that they go for $2k-ish at a junk yard. If I had held on to mine until fall I probably could have got 2k, but I wanted it gone so I put it up for $1000 and took $925. My defrost and wiper worked great, and had just a few minor scratches.

I am looking for one currently. They have been going for $800 to $1000 but by the time I find one posted it sells immediately. I've missed out on 3 in the last month. They are going on ebay used for about $2300 plus but you can get aftermarket cheaper than that gor about 1700. Unfortunately both require high cost for shipping. I refuse to pay $2000 for a used hard top that's not in pristine condition. Hopefully I'll find another one for sale before it snows.

I just missed one for $800 in NJ and $900 in VA. I'm in Baltimore. I'm not against paying a little more but I don't want anything broken on it and no cracks.

Here in New England, I bought mine for 1000, I didn't even bother offering less. All others that I saw in the year it took to find this one were 1500 and up.
If I was to sell it, I would list it for 1500-1800 depending on the time of year.
