|Mom sold the Jeepster||Keep the hard top!!! For about $10 you can get ratchet straps and take it off/on by yourself. For $99 you can get an emergency top that fits in a bag under the seat. Once you get 'er off, you'll never want a top til the season ends and you won't have to be disappointed with a soft top going bad on you in just a couple years and having to replace it|

|biscot||Guess I'll be keeping it. Maybe if I don't use it for a couple of years, I'll be willing to take what I can get for it.|

I wont mind keeping mine till next winter.
It will be in the basement sitting quitely on the carpet.

I don't know this for sure but that's how I understand it
Obviously the prices don't really make sense because there is no way that the soft top costs 1100, but idk

I just sold my 2010 JKU hard top to another member for $1100. I priced mine to move it quickly and it was in average condition. I've seen 2door tops go for 900-1500 around here. If its in near new condition, I'd post it for $1400 and be willing to come down $100 or so if you are motivated.
Hope that helps! BTW, I'm running my Trektop full time now too and the differences are minor in my opinion.

|jkjeeper06||I paid $1325 after tax for a take off at a dealership for my top. This top had never been driven off the lot so I'd say $1300 would be an instant sell for your top. I wouldnt ask more than $1500 tho. It will take too long to sell|

Something about the price of these tops doesn't make sense to me.
I ordered a 12 Sahara 2 dr. It comes with the soft top. I wanted a hard top, which was a $700 option. If I wanted the dual top option, it is an $1,800 option.
If it came with the soft top which is part of the price of vehicle and I paid the $700 extra for the hard top, it seems like with the dual top option, you pay for the soft top twice. Included in the base price and then $1,800 more, including $700 for the hard top.
Makes no sense, IF I am understanding this correctly.

Thanks for the tip.
I've done a forum search and haven't found any negative comments on the Wild Boar tops, aside from the price tag. Could you be more specific or point me in a direction?

Was up north in Oct and got in that freak snowstorm. Went out in the morning to find 7 inches of wet heavy snow bowing in the center of my soft top. Actually thinking of replacing with a hard top down the road. Soft tops look like crap if you don't keep up with them and the windows scratch very easily.
I was also diggin' those wild boar fast back hard tops, but after doing some research I found that alot of people had negative issues with them.
You may want to do some investigation before buying one, and they're not cheap either.

Ouch, that's a bundle.
Well, I just put my Trektop on and I'm loving it - I doubt I'll ever want the hardtop back on, so might try a feeler add in Craig's list - I'm thinking more like $1800 would be a fair price.

|ESP||sold mine back to the dealer for $1850 and then used the credit to purchase some new tires/wheels|

Thanks RoobyRoo - I am having second thoughts about selling the hardtop, as we do get a pretty good winter here, and I figured out a good way to store it. I'd hate to have to replace it if I changed my mind - maybe I'll wait until after next winter to decide!
(Although I admit I lust after the Wild Boar Fastback Hardtop, if I were ever to buy a hardtop).

|RoobyRoo||biscot, just make sure you really don't want the hardtop option before you sell it. I like having both. Have you driven with a soft top yet going 70 mph on the highway? It's a lot louder. Does it snow a lot where you are? The soft top can sag a lot under snow (I have heard). Is crime an issue where you live because the soft top takes 3 seconds to break into (unzip)? Soft tops are also harder to keep clean I have found. Just some things to consider. None are that big of a deal. Like I said, I like my soft top, but I think there are occasions and seasons for both.|

|biscot||Thanks for the replies. It's brand new, so now just to find a buyer!|

|gr8fulKID||Just to give you an idea.. I got rid of my 08 freedom hardtop for a 2dr for 1000, and it was in really scratchy condition with a few chips in the fiberglass. Keep in mind that a new one goes for what...2500 after shipping? Maybe more?|

Duh, hadn't even seen the classifieds here. Good place to start.
|03-08-2012 07:12 AM|
I've seen them for $1000-$1500. More for a JKU obviously.

How much to ask for my hardtop?
I'm wanting to sell the factory hardtop (freedom top) from my 2012 Wrangler sport 2dr. - only a month old, but going to switch to Trektop. Probably put it on Craigslist and maybe ebay.
I haven't seen any for sale, so I don't know what they're going for.
Would be for local pickup only (in the SE-Idaho N-Utah area)- can't see shipping it. Anybody got an idea what I should ask for it?
