Good deal on this Jeep?

My close friend's wife stopped driving her old Jeep Wrangler when she bought a new Compass. Since then it's just been sitting in their driveway, getting overgrown with weeds.

It's a 1992 with the 6 cylinder, automatic, hard top, and only 80,000 miles. It's always run well. The body is in good shape without rust. One of the front fenders is rusted out, because my friend accidentally mushed it against a tree.

He told me I can have it for $2,500 if I get it out of there. Should I do it? From my research it seems like they're going for significantly more than that.

On a related note, or hard and costly would it be to convert it from a hard top to a soft top?

Take hard top off, buy soft top, door surrounds, header bar, and tailgate bar. I think that is all. And soft top frame.

One thing to keep in mind with YJs when switching to a soft top is the full steel doors (which I'm assuming the Jeep has since it's a hard top) won't fit with a factory style soft top. The corners of the full doors are rounded while the factory soft top door opening is squared.

If you want to use the full doors with a soft top you need to go with something like the Supertop or Sunrider top which would work with the full doors. Either that or get half doors and uppers with a squared corner and use a factory style soft top.

Is there much demand for hard tops? Do you think someone might want to simply swap everything?

The demand is bigger in the winter than summer, but yea, put up a craigslist ad wanting to trade and somebody will probably reply.
