Fair Price for Soft top/Hardtop Trade
I am looking to trade my factory 05' soft top with tinted windows for a hardtop for my TJ. My soft top is in excellent condition. only 6K so far.
Just wondering about what a fair offer would be on a trade. My soft top does not include the upper doors. I was thinking of a trade + $300. Anyone have any input?
and if you live in hawaii with a hardtop?? give me a call and we can work something out!
Welcome to the forum. Sounds okay to me. Figure a hard top is around 800-1000. Soft top is what 500-600 so that would seem to put you in the ballpark. Check some sites and see what each is going for. such as ebay and other jeep sites.
My opinion is that because soft tops deteriorate, and hard tops (basically) do not, soft tops have very limited value on the used market.
I see new ones in the box (never installed w/ all hardware) on ebay for $230 and up.
One can buy a BRAND NEW flip-top soft top (with all hardware) for well under $600 (Collins Bros. Jeep has them on sale now for $399 COMPLETE).
Used hard tops range from $600 to $800 in good shape.
Just my opinion, of course. If someone is hot for a soft top, and doesn't want a hard top, you may do very well with your swap.
BTW, I just bought a brand new OEM style Smittybilt "Outlander" top for my 2000 TJ for $225 from Collins Bros.
