2021 Jeep Wrangler Willys Sport Unlimited
Hi everyone, I’m new to the forum and this is my first post. I recently purchased a 2021 Jeep Wrangler Willys Sport Unlimited with a hard top. With summer coming here in New England, I am looking to purchase a soft top. What is a good price to pay for a used soft top? Also, other than Craigslist any recommendations as to where one can purchase a used soft top? Not seeing a lot in my area... Thanks in advance

Welcome to the forum.

The Member Marketplace is always worth a look. You can view by part type (Interior, Exterior, etc.) and each listing includes the seller's State.

You'd probably be able to find one NIB from someone who got a JLU with the dual-top group and decided to not swap the top. They do pop up on Craigslist or FB Marketplace for ~$1500ish.

I paid $1200 for mine. Got lucky I think. Only had to drive 30 min for it. Found it on this forum.

Forget a used soft top, buy a new Bestop "Sunrider" leave the panels at home! Actually left the panels hanging in their bag all winter even got some days with Sunrider open, great! Geatest option ever for both my JK's and the JL!!!

Half hour install, hours and hours of use, perfect $700 bucks! At least look into one and make a decision! Soft tops a pain in the butt to put up and down!! LOL;)

Go Jeep!!!

I am trying to decide on this. My opinion is that its not a replacement for ansoft top. I LOVE my soft top but think the fredom panels are a big PIA. You are talking me into that Sunrider!

~$600 for sailcloth (I saw a couple for 200 with clear windows on offer up), ~$1200 for twill. And learn from my mistakes :) don't buy it if its dark outside. Windows are very easy to scratch and scratches are not very obvious in the dark.

Oh, another thing I learned recently. Make sure locking tabs are green and not black, its newer and better design.
