Soft top to Hard top conversion.
 
Hello everyone, I am a newly 1994 jeep Wrangler YJ owner and very excited! I am wondering if I need any special hardware for a hard top to be installed on my Wrangler. I know that the soft top has special hardware, but after I remove the frame of the soft top can I just put the hard top on (obviously bolting it down) and be ready to go?:confused: Also I plan on buying the hard top used for $500 and full steel doors for $300 for the pair. Are these prices to steep for the items? If so what is a reasonable cash offer. Any help would be much appreciated!

Welcome!:)
As soon as you get the soft top hardware off the hardtop can be put on. Nothing else is needed. The prices of jeep stuff just depends we're you are located. I paid 200$ for my top and full doors. They were off a cj though. Just depends where you are and what condition it's all in. I have seen hardtops and doors, go for more than that.

No, you don't need any new hardware for the hardtop. it should come with nuts/bolts to tighten the hardtop down onto the body. Price is pretty reasonable for used. I've seen them anywhere from $350-$500 used depending on condition. $300 for pair of full doors is a pretty good price. Half doors run about $150-200 and full doors run about $200-400 used usally. (all my prices are based off what i've seen on Craigslist/ebay recently). If i was making an offer and they were both in good shape i'd offer $350-400 for hardtop and maybe $225-250 for doors. (This is based off of conditions of doors/top). Good luck !!
