I wanted to go with a combination of tops and doors that I had never seen on a Jeep before (not to say it doesn't exist). I replaced the worn out soft top with a used hardtop and had it color match painted. A friend of mine referred me to another friend of his that does body work. He painted the entire top for $350 (including the price of paint). A Google search didn't render any results of this combination of top and doors so I decided to post some pictures to help other Jeepers decide if it was something they wanted to do.
I may invest in another soft top one day but the hardtop makes traveling (especially during the winter) much more peaceful. All feedback is appreciated!
I bet it looks better with the half windows off. Any pics of it like that? I'm gonna agree with the others, I think the top would be better in black to match the windows and give some contrast. However I don't like painted tops at all usually.

I also think the contrast looks better with black. The problem was that I got a good deal ($800) on the a glossy black hardtop. The contrast between the half uppers and the the glossy black looked funny too. Now that it's painted green, I think I should have just went with a matte black.
I'll get a picture of it without the half uppers on as well.
Yeah, I just picked up a hardtop to run with my half doors and think the black hardtop is the way to go. Here is how mine looks. Not a perfect match with the uppers and hardtop, but it is close enough for me
