    got a hard top, sold a hard top...

    do you really want a hard top? I mean really?

    then $500- isn't bad, do you have full doors or does it come with uppers for half doors?

    I found that after I got the hard top on, I couldnt wait to get it back off, and once I got it off, I just wear a jacket... even when it rains, if you drive fast 'nuff it's all good.

      I go back and forth. I don't have a lot of room to store it so it would be on the jeep all the time. I don't live in the best neighborhood so it would keep my tools and such secure. They make the jeep a lot more comfortable on the hwy. The guy who is selling the top is also selling some upper half doors that fit the top. I would be looking for full doors though. There are other places I can spend $500 on the jeep.

          Unlike Kodiak Spirit, I get fricken' cold driving my Jeep in the winter here in the desert to and from work. So I bought a hard top. I take it off and run with a bikini top when the fricken' cold weather is over!

          If you don't have a place to store it, then I wouldn't recommend you buy it. If you break it, the liftgate glass is getting scarce as a Republican in the White House. But you can't beat it for security. Your other security option (po' boy style) is to bolt either plywood or diamond plate across the top of your wheel wells in the back and lock your tail gate.

          $500.00 is a good price if it has all the glass. Scotties in Fontana wants $850.00.

            Same here, got a hard top and when the weather turned nice I couldn't wait to get it off. Two problems though, no space to store it and my wife couldn't help me lift it. So I sold it and I don't regret it one bit. The other thing is when offroading it kept shifting on the tub, popping the rear window and rubbing on the roll bar.

            That is the only adantage I saw, quieter ride on the freeway, but it wasn't enough for me to keep it. Plus I always leave my Jeep unlocked in case someone wants to snoop around. That way, I am hoping they will just open the door instead of breaking a window or slashing the top.

            -31F here a few weeks ago and my softop kept me nice and warm. I have to say that the sailcloth is definitely the way to go. On a side note, I have seen a couple of nutballs running with no top.

                20F today, very nice and just wearing a flannel shirt. A few more degrees and we'll soon be dusting off the flip-flops.

                  ok, I'm the nutball running with no top...

                  hey, a nice Tuffy box for behind the seat, or the expandable box for the rear if you want to take the back seat out, keeps the tools nice and safe. and for less than $500- a Tuffy center console is nice to, plus if you get the security glovebox you can put a battery kill switch in there... :2:

                    i agree with Kodiak Spirit - I had my hard top on the first winter...when it came off, it hasn't gone on since. i have a soft top and find that the windows are always too. just something you gotta do with a Jeep. i would invest in a security trunk or tuffy box for your tools and forget the hard top. jmo...

                      Lucky me, my jeep came with a tuffy glove box and center console. I hadn’t thought to put a kill switch in the box. That is a great idea. My old man was a CJ guru and I’ll quote him when I say…

                          I agree with Roger

                          In the winter as a daily driver I like the hard top. When it's not cold (most of the time) I run without a top all together or maybe just a bikini/shade top. Any top will be costly to repair if you tear it up wheeling but at least the soft top can be fixed by replacing panels. As for security, leave the jeep unlocked. Someone taking a few things withouit kniving your top is a lot cheeper then having to replace your stuff and your top. I've heard of tuffy box being destroyed by theives just to get a CB or loose change. I recommend don't carry anything you don't have to and leave everything unlocked.

                            What about 1 of those box's under back seat? Love my H-Top here in winter,but I also love my BIG back yard where I park it
