recently i traded for a 1995 wrangler with 217,000 and change. its black on black. with only hard top. the jeep was rolled last year, no to bad, most was fixed, what wasnt fixed was the fiberglass top, which i ended up fixing with a $12 wal-mart fiberglass repair kit and a can of paint. the windshield frame is still all jacked up. its bent and push back and all this non sense. so bent actually that i have plexi-glass in there now.

i am wondering if i need or SHOULD buy a new frame and glass or buy a used one. they are roughly the same cost for new and used (daveys jeep is about 30 minutes from me) and they want 125 for a new frame and NO glass. several people on craigslist want 125 for a used frame with glass, though the glass is cracked. im not sure what i should do. with the window frame not sitting straight it in turn makes the hard top sit cock-eyed and wind and crap comes in on the road. i need an opinion.


where is the best place to buy a soft top AND hardware together, as i have none.

Check with some of the salvage yards listed on this page before buying anything. You might be able to find something a bit cheaper. I bought my top from http://www.ok4wd.com/ a few years ago. The price was a few bucks cheaper than quadratec but shop around a bit. It looks like there's also a rebate on some of the tops right now.
