    Is this hardtop a good deal?

    I've been casually looking for a hardtop for some time, and i've come across this one:

    Jeep TJ Hard Top

    What do you guys think. Is it a good deal for $500? Normal price around here seems to be $700-800 for a TJ top.

    Is this hardtop a good deal?-00404_luew6hfg1au_1200x900.jpg

    *update
    It looks like the rear window is a plexiglass replacement.

    It's hard to tell but it's looking kinda rough and $500 seems like a lot of money for a 20 year old top in that condition.
    F150. No it's not a Jeep, but soon.

    I've been looking for a while, and not too many come along. I'll probably pass on this one, just because it's over an hour from my house.

    There's another TJ hardtop on craigslist near me for $1200

    Cold hard cash will probably buy that Craigslist top for $400.

    I passed on this top. I'd pay $500 for an ugly top, but not for one with a missing / plexiglass rear window.

    Dang, that seems a bit on the high side. I sold my TJ top for $800 and it was only maybe a year old at the time. That was the going rate for fairly new tops back then.

    This is way too high in my opinion. Definitely keep searching, you'll find a way better deal!

    Maybe it isn't bad if you can find the glass cheap.

    Re: Is this hardtop a good deal?

    If you want to drive up to NY I know someone who'd sell one in better shape the that for $250-300. I bought my hard top that is in beautiful shape for $260 then he gave the cash back when I traded him my smashed up grand Cherokee for full doors, fiberglass windshield, bushwhacker flares, and a locking center console
