Looking for a soft top!!!

Hey all,

New jeep owner here, looking to get the hard top off ASAP!!
have back brackets and roll bar brackets already, I'm thinking I just need the support bars and fabric?

Anyone know of a cheaper way to get a replacement when I need parts too.. Online cheapest I can find is around $650-700 plus shipping..
Kijiji / craigslist has nothing in my area willing to drive a bit for a deal or someone looking to help out a newbie jeeper!

Any known deals in the Windsor ON, or Detroit MI area, let me know!!

I appreciate any input

Ebay is your next best bet or the classifieds here.

I've always heard that you're better off getting a brand new top, rather than hunting for a used. Recently I bought a softopper bowless top with tinted windows. This came with all the hardware, and the door surrounds. (Metal bars around the doors) and I love it! I can take the windows fully off making a safari top, and it's a lot quieter. I paid just a bit over $500. It's all made in American and very sturdy. Do you have full doors or half doors?

If it is a good hard top, drive on over and you can have all or part of what I listed. They have the programmable lock cylinders, still in the bags...Mopar hinges for the doors still in the bags.. Seriously, I am either going to sell them and buy a hard top, or swap all this stuff for one. I ain't picky. I want a hard top and the space back in my garage so I can actually fit the Jeep in it.. the Missus don't want to go topless anymore, and honestly, I'm kinda tired of dust inside...

FWIW, there are pictures of them in the Santa Fe NM Craigslist auto parts, 6-6-13..

I have two soft top frames. Three if you count the one I'm using... You can have one but I think it's too big to go UPS. How hard to ship to Canada? My zip is 89183.

So you have the door surrounds and the brackets that go on the back of the Jeep and the bar for the back window to tailgate? That stuff adds up pretty fast...

i dont believe I've looked at qudratops? is that a company that sells or type of top?

I have the left and right bracket on my roll bars, and i have a left and right that i believe is for the back track that slides into the window channel? i have i believe the brackets for the channel to clip to...

I dont think I have door surrounds... unless you can have them on with a hard top otherwise I'm going to say no.. Sorry guys new to the Jeep.
