Post Hard Top Hook Up? Worth It?

I bought a hard top for my 2004 Wrangler Unlimited. My plan is to keep it on in the winter and use the soft top in the summer.

POLL: Is is worth $500 to hook it up (switches, wiring, rear wiper and defroster).

Is $500 for someone else to do ti for you, or is that just for parts?

That's parts and installation (by someone else). I'm in Ashburn VA (I see you're in Warrenton) - any suggestions? I did hear of a guy in Manassas who does Jeep wiring on the side of his CB radio buisiness...

PARTS ARE $169.00. Took me about 5 hours. Now I could do it in 2.

How long do you expect to keep the vehicle?
Divide the number of years into the $500. This will give you the cost per year.
Now you need to decide if it's worth the money!

Quadratec You order by the year of the JEEP. You get a new washer bottle,pump,(you reuse the old one also) wiring harness,switches,wire ties and instruction for 159.00. The only other thing you may need is an adapter if the vehicle and top year are not compatible. not sure but tops without vents are 04,05, and 06 with one pin configuration and the vented ones are a different configuration. I have a 04 top on an 05 so no adapter necessary.
