Got a damaged hardtop for $200

I bought this hardtop on craigslist for $200 its complete, it was in a side roll accident. I have the rear window it needs new hinges. There are a few cracks in the top but nothing too bad.

I think you "did good", after you fix it you will have way less than a new one would have cost.

Also bought a damaged hardtop off craigslist. The guy dropped it, cracked the top corner and broke the edges off the bottom. Had it repaired and painted by a family friend for fairly cheap.
In all I have $550 in the top. A lot better than $1-2k for one

Jeep looks good, top looks good. How do you like the hard top, I have never been in one with a hard top?

I too managed to snag a crazy cheap hard top off a friend who is selling his Jeep! Has a little hole in the outer shell in the middle by the windshield channel where a tree fell on it, don't see why I can't add that to the "to do" list to becoming operational again!

With weather like we've had here lately, raining all the time, it's nice. And it's nice not having to hear the soft top chatter while Im driving. And Im sure it'll be a lot warmer this winter. But it's off for now, hopefully the sun will stay for a while!

I about froze last winter and we have a baby due in 3 weeks having a 5 month old in a freezing cold soft top jeep won't be good, I'm hoping it will be a lot warmer in the jeep with the hardtop.

I bought a Rampage frameless top last year for mine and the damn thing was so tight it wouldn't dare mKe noise going down the road and stayed fairly warm too, I imagine the hard top I just got will be a significant difference though

If it is at least a 2007 and you live near Ohio, I might be interested

I think I have an extra pair of hinges at the house if you need them. Just pay shipping. I will double check tonight if you're interested.
