JK hard top

Anyone ever sell their hardtop and later wish they hadn't?
Taking up room in the garage and every time I think I'll put it on I decide I'd rather pull a tooth.
The soft top is loud but I'm used to it and when summer comes my doors are off anyway so that is the least of the noise.

And...whatcha think its worth ?

Just trying to boost my post count

Holy Crap you're actually still alive?? LOL
Tony,
If I had a hard top I'd keep and use it! Especially when you consider how fragile the soft top windows are in the cold. And by switching them out your soft top will last longer.

Since you've got it, might as well use it. I feel like it keeps wind and cold out better. And I'm pretty sure a request for assistance lifting it into place would get you plenty of offers.

Yup, and she would have us all believe it was Chad that's the twisted one. Now the truth comes out!

I sold mine and got a soft top because the winters out hear are pretty weak, love that i don't have to deal with it and have the soft top for those late afternoon showers in the summer

I sorta feel the same way. The winters aren't bad....cheap to replace a window panel if you had to.
I looked pulling the top down in the winter when we get a 60 degree day.
Only thing I get a little sick of is the sound...loud at 75 degrees and I do a fair amount of driving on the hwy to get to the airport

I think I'll put it on CList
Thanks for all the opinions.
