I have 33's with no lift. No room to flex either, but no lift.

Kernal Clink hmmm, not sure. I wasn't really looking at buying doors just yet. Alabama is just a bit far for me to come get them anyway. Thanks though. The OP lives less than 2hrs from me, that's why I brought it up.

When I was Jeep shopping one of the things I looked for specificaly was half doors. The top was secondary to me just because I like the look of the half doors. Eventually I will have all 3 door sets and both tops but I bought what I wanted most first.

If you do decide to sell the hard top, I'd like to throw my name in the hat for first shot at it.

...and since we're shamelessly showing our rigs in this thread....
ummmm, how much you be willing to pay for a hard top in excellent shape and full steel doors?.....

i've been giving some thought to that option....but by the time i pay for the bar, pay your quoted price for the top, then buy half doors and uppers, i'm not sure it's worth it when i can buy the bestop kit for around 850.00...

And to answer your question on the soft doors, YES you can open the windows. They have zippers that you can unzip and fold the window in and down. The rear windows in the soft tops are the same way except you roll the rear window up and secure it with two straps attached to the top.

If you do decide to sell the hard top, I'd like to throw my name in the hat for first shot at it.

bakerboys ok i like that
02-14-2012 07:48 PM
bakerboys hey NAS.A7X you like that top it looks a little different than standard soft top
02-14-2012 07:43 PM
Nas.a7x Nope no frame it uses the roll bar as its frame. So no frame 2 mess with when you want take the top of and you can take just the windows out and use it as a safari top, I love my top and recomend it I paid $560 shipped with tinted windows..
