My opinion is that because soft tops deteriorate, and hard tops (basically) do not, soft tops have very limited value on the used market.
I see new ones in the box (never installed w/ all hardware) on ebay for $230 and up.
One can buy a BRAND NEW flip-top soft top (with all hardware) for well under $600 (Collins Bros. Jeep has them on sale now for $399 COMPLETE).
Used hard tops range from $600 to $800 in good shape.
Just my opinion, of course. If someone is hot for a soft top, and doesn't want a hard top, you may do very well with your swap.
BTW, I just bought a brand new OEM style Smittybilt "Outlander" top for my 2000 TJ for $225 from Collins Bros.

|4Jeepn||Welcome to the forum. Sounds okay to me. Figure a hard top is around 800-1000. Soft top is what 500-600 so that would seem to put you in the ballpark. Check some sites and see what each is going for. such as ebay and other jeep sites.|

Fair Price for Soft top/Hardtop Trade
I am looking to trade my factory 05' soft top with tinted windows for a hardtop for my TJ. My soft top is in excellent condition. only 6K so far.
Just wondering about what a fair offer would be on a trade. My soft top does not include the upper doors. I was thinking of a trade + $300. Anyone have any input?
and if you live in hawaii with a hardtop?? give me a call and we can work something out!
