Figuring out the good truck hard top deals from the bad!
Everybody wants a deal. But, is a deal really a deal? Being in this business for awhile, I’ve heard it all. Like the guy who inspired me to write this article. He buys a used Jeep hardtop for his Wrangler, what a deal. He only paid $300 for it, it’s only missing the rear window. So, I get the call from this guy, he want’s me to sell him a rear window for a stock Jeep hardtop. Well, I don’t have one and I don’t know where he’s going to find one. So, was it a deal? There are some good deals on used hardtops. But, you must make sure that you have all your bases covered before you buy one. I’m going to go over some things that you should consider when buying a used hardtop on Ebay.
Q. Can you inspect the top, before you buy it?
This is very important. Buying it sight unseen is risky. The hardtop has to be complete. All windows must be intact and the rear door must open, close and lock. What about the keys for those locks, do they come with the top? What about the mounting hardware, chances are, it was left on the vehicle when they removed the hardtop. All hardtop manufacturers use different mounting systems and most of them are out of business, so beware.
Q. Are you going to have it shipped to you?
The cost of shipping a hardtop is very expensive. If you call a commercial freight carrier, they will charge you the full freight rate. So make sure you know the final hardtop cost before you buy.
So, good luck on your search for a good used hardtop. Remember, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, give us a call. We we’ll make you up a new top guaranteed to fit and send it right out.
