CJ Hardtop Manufacturer?

Hi

I was wondering where I could get a new Hardtop and doors
for a CJ. I have not bought a jeep yet but it will most likely be between 76-79. I used search and saw that new tops were about 2k but a manufacturer was never mentioned. So any help would be appreciated.

Thx

Why buy a brand new top when there are used tops out there for ALOT less money? What you save can be put into mods for the Jeep. BTW I have a white hardtop with good glass. The only problem is the rear liftgate needs replaced. They run about $200. I want $300 for my top. For $500 you can have a top that is just as good as those $2000 tops.

you can find used hardtops around here, i dont know bout where you live, for anywhere between $75 and $300. the $75 ones usually need a new liftgate and a coat of paint, the $300 ones are usually the ones someone took off after they bought thier jeep when they put a soft top on and stored it. needless to say look for a used top first and dont worry bout manufacturer.

AJ's in PA makes and sells fiberglass hard tops for cj's.

http://www.ajsjeepbodies.com/

you have to ask them to send you a catalogue or email them for a price. They have a lot of things in their catalogue that aren't shown on their site.

I think the tops go for 1200$ or so

Thanks for the replies. I live in Oregon. I have not bought my jeep yet but wanted to be sure I could get a hardtop for it when I did if it does not come with one since it rains Alot here. If I get one that does not have a hardtop I will definitely get back to those of you that have ones for sale I did not realize there were so many used ones out there for sale. Thanks again

Hardtops are easy to find, it's the full steel doors that are expensive. Now is buyers market as most people don't look for a top and doors until winter. I would worry about finding a jeep first, then if it doesn't have a top you can look for one. You'd be surprised how many you'll look at that will already have a hardtop. I paid $800 for my top and doors for my "85 (good deal). You should be able to find a set for about $1000; expect to pay $600 for later style doors and $350-$450 for a top in good shape. If you find one cheap with a rusted out rear gate you can get a fiberglass rear gate for $150. Good luck.
