Thanks for the link. I'm curious to see what I can get them for here in Canada, I'm going to check this week. That'll give me a good comparison.

getahemi Thanks to all your input I've decided to keep the hard top and look for a used soft top for summer use. I've seen ads for nice soft tops for 5 to 6 hundred bucks so I think I'm gonna go that route. Thanks again guys. Btw it's snowing here and the remote start and heated seats were awesome this morning!

getahemi Can't put it in my parking spot or on my balcony. Fancy a$$ rental development has rules. Lol.
10-23-2013 12:39 PM
back in the game If you have a balcony put it there!!
10-23-2013 12:01 PM
Unbroken1 How deep is your parking spot? I saw on another thread here somewhere that somebody bought the hard top storage cart (it stands the top on its end and has a second piece to hold freedom panels and doors, it then slides into the first piece to minimize floor space) and they just store it in their spot behind the Jeep.
10-23-2013 11:49 AM
getahemi I can prob find somewhere to put it outside for the warmer months. Mini storage is $90 bucks a month. Should maybe just do that for six months a year and buy a soft top. I didn't realize the hts were worth so much. I better hold on to it. U

Michel347 You have a 2013 JKUR, most used hardtops that look brand new like yours, go for 2000$ on the used market, they are easy to sell, at least for 2dr JK especially at this time of year.
10-23-2013 10:45 AM
StarBrite Or a mini storage place? Maybe see how this winter treats you, before making a permanent decision?
10-23-2013 10:43 AM
dukedallas Don't you have friends? With yards?
10-23-2013 10:27 AM
getahemi Thanks for the advice everyone. If I had somewhere to put the ht I would keep it for sure. I live in an apartment so I have no place to put it and no relatives that can or will help me out. It's hard to sell a hard top here since most jks come with one. Soft tops sell quick for good money. I got $1000 for mine. The top I'm looking at is a new mopar premium with window tint. My ht is painted premium but I've used it for a few months. It sure looks nice on my jeep too.

You're located in Ontario..... Keep the Hard Top. You can always remove the hardtop for nice weather.
10-23-2013 09:49 AM
dukedallas DONT DO IT! He's robbing you! Like people said you can deal deals on soft tops everywhere, I got my Premium for $500 on CL..the hard tops go for over $1500 look online even the ones for TJ's are going for $500-$800. You'd be hard pressed to find a JK hardtop for under 1k. I hate seeing a fellow jeeper being raped. Let us know how it turns out!

PS My friends store hardtops outside all the time it'll be find just keep it off the ground on a pallet, and tape up the connector wires.
10-23-2013 09:45 AM
Vt rider If I had a choice (I only have the premium soft top), I'd keep the hardtop. I don't know what a heavy snowstorm would do to the soft top, and I wouldn't want to find out firsthand. At least with the hardtop, you can take off the front panels when riding around in Florida. The hardtop also provides better security for the vehicle.

Keep the hardtop. Do you have family nearby that won't mind storing a hardtop for the summers? Soft tops are easy to score deals on through various avenues.

Trading hard top for soft top

I have the opportunity to trade my 4 month old painted hard top to my dealer for a premium mopar soft top from a new rubicon that's sitting in the showroom.
