WrangleDangle...It does take some orientation to forums...We're a friendly bunch and always willing to assist...

 

The used factory hardtops are at a premium.  If your TJ Wrangler came as a factory soft top model, a factory hardtop can be purchased used.  They tend to be scarce, as most owners keep the hardtop for winter months.  Garage ceiling hoists for the top are popular.

 

I searched the aftermarket, and Smittybilt offers a hardtop with necessary upper hard doors.  You'd want these upper doors for security, what's the point of a hardtop without secure doors, right?  Here's a catalog offering at 4WD Hardware: http://www.4wd.com/Jeep-Tops-Jeep-Top-Accessories/One-Piece-Hardtop-with-Upper-Doors.aspx?t_c=75&t_s=460&t_pt=3294&t_pn=S%2fB519801.

 

Compare this with the dealer's offer.  Make sure the dealer is talking about an OEM Mopar hardtop as a comparison.  In either case, you need all hardware, insulation around doors and everything to convert from a soft top to hardtop.  Weigh the costs.  If you pursue an OEM (original equipment) Jeep TJ top used, be aware that the doors need to be part of that package.  You need the full doors with insulation.  Insulation restoration kits are available in the aftermarket.

 

Other members may have suggestions or parts sources here...We're available for any further questions...Let us know how this turns out.
