Which Hard Top?
 
An age old question (I'm sure) - from a Newbie.

I am looking at putting a new hard top on a Green 1998 Wrangler Sahara. Geoff@bestop has his opinion, but I am also considering a Bulldawg.

1-piece w/sunroof v. 2-piece?
Black v. Tan?

Advice?

You might check out Black Mountain tops, Collins Bros. had them on sale for $1395. I think green with a tan top looks good.

Thanks ammoniaman.

I would go with a black top all the way. I think ,that black accenting looks good on a green jeep. It makes them look like military jeeps...

I just found one on Craigslist for $500 and snatched it up. I have been beaten to the punch so many times and I finally won! Either way, I would suggest picking one up second hand. New is alot of $$. If you chose tan (which I think looks sweet with green) you can usually find alot of them on Craigs because everyone wants black. I have a silver Rubi so I had to hold out for black. Plus, any TJ top will do so you have alot of years to select from. :punk:

x2 on the used. Paying 1000+ or so is insane. There are several 2 piece tops but from reading posts, they can be difficult to get them to seal well at times.

If you find a good deal on whatever color, painting it is not a bad option. Plenty of people including myself have used Krylon Fusion with good results.

Thanks... I'm gonna shop the used market.

don't know how close you are to Rockford, but a guy on craigslist listed 2 for $500 a piece TODAY. I highly recommend you check 'em out b/c you probably won't find one for less than a grand with the cold coming up. I am guessing they're so cheap cuz he's all the way up there.
