bluvikng Nothing wrong with that, skeeter. I have also been in a position of having to negotiate with the insurance co., and what you say is absolutely true. They will always try to low ball you, and try to get you to accept their first offer. Everything in life is usually negotiable, and to put some one down for refusing the first low offer, is rather small minded.

Who said anything about cheating the insurance company?
I entered into a business agreement with them to provide coverage for my vehicle, they agreed to the negotiations after doing an exhaustive search for a cheaper replacement. Everything was above board, legal and per the terms of our agreement. They started with a low ball offer in the hopes of saving themselves money, I simply negotiated a better deal and shopped for a replacement myself.

JCS05Rubi Bitch. the hard top is not a "topper" and depreciates at the same rate of the vehicle and soft top and so on. If you were going by the insurance depreciation values, my jeep would be worth 10,000. Sorry slick, better start raising hell and get that hard top..

You can dicker with em just like you would a dealership. I spent a couple hours arguing with the adjuster and actually wound up making money.

AzTJ Yes it should - anything attached to the vehicle should be covered.

Tumult cost of the new top is down to 2k
if he has to pay the 500 + $500 depredia. he is paying for half of it

IMO it should be covered fully

sgnellett Sounds like BS to me, that rate of depreciation would only work if the top cost $10,000! I'd tell 'em to pack sand, try again, that aint gonna fly!

AzTJ never heard of that. When my window got busted out on the hard top it was covered, no problems.

Hard tops and Ins.

Sombody must have run across this before.

A buddy of mine (2003 TJ) had a deer decide it wanted to hitch a ride through his pass side rear hard top window. It didn't turn out well and the top need to be replaced.

He has full coverage and of course has to pay the $500 deductible but his ins. is tryint to say he need to pay another $500 for depreciation with the thought that the top is like a pick-up topper and only has a lifetime of 20yrs.

I think NO

anyone else run into this?
