Black 2piece Hardtop for 2dr JK : South FL $1700 OBO : Brand new, unopened!

SOLD

Hi everybody

I'm not thrilled that my first post is to sell an item, but I kinda have to hustle on this I'm afraid.

Item : Black 2 piece Hardtop for 2dr JK , Keystone Restyling brand (previously Bestop hardtops)
Location: Fort Lauderdale FL (Lauderdale Lakes)
Price: $1700 - make me an offer , will also consider part in trade (looking for a soft top/trektop/new tires).

Local pickup is probably easier, but if you want to setup delivery, I think it runs about $250. You can arrange for pickup directly from the bodyshop.

This retails on most sites for $2200

After my accident, my insurance company decided to replace the whole top because they couldn't "match the texture" of a few scratches. It took over a month to come in, and it's sitting right now at the body shop, still crated and wrapped in plastic, straight from Keystone in CA. I can personally attest that these are great tops, better than the Freedom tops in my opinion, especially for dealing with the FL heat. During the summer, I had to duck the heat radiating from the Freedom top in my previous JK. The headliner in this top does a great job regulating temperature.

** I wasn't sure if I was allowed to link to this item on a vendor's site for example. PM me I guess. If you're interested/need more info, I can get pictures of the one on my jeep currently.

If anyone is interested, I would also be willing to consider offers to sell or trade on my old top, the one with the few scratches, as mentioned above.

I'm trying to get $800 for it, or partial trade for a soft top with hardware.

It's not that bad at all, which is why I'd prefer to keep it and sell the new one if possible.

SOLD

Hey guys,
sorry for the late update and any wasted searches, but this sucker is SOLD!

Thanks for looking.

** I was trying to figure out if it is possible to edit the title of this thread to add Sold to the subject line. If anyone know how to do that, let me know.

I'm actually pretty happy with mine. I've had both this top and the Freedom top on my previous Jeep.

Cons first :

CONS :: to be honest, I get a little bit of a leak in heavy rain when it's been sitting still and collecting, but I think that is probably partly due to the accident I had making it possibly sit askew OR the previous owner installing it himself and not getting a great fit. (my accident was so soon after purchasing that I never got a good test in prior). It's nothing major though, and certainly not as bad as the leak I had in the Freedom top. The only other issue is that with the 2piece, if you decide to remove the front cover, there is no easy place to put it (in a 2 door). Apparently they used to make a roofrack mount for the TJs that gave you a place to put the front when removed, but so far it doesn't exist for JKs


PROS :: It's EXCELLENT for not over-heating the way the Freedom top does. I live in Florida, and if you don't live in the heat then it may not be an issue for you, but when I had my freedom top and it sat in the sun for awhile, you could actually feel the heat radiating down on the inside hot enough that I had to duck down when I first got in it. This top has a carpeted liner on top AND sides that seems help maintain the temp and the muffle outside side. ALSO the back hinge broke on mine, and I was able to contact the manuf and get a replacement hinge for like $17. Try finding an OEM replacement hinge for the Freedom top.

If I were buying one now, I'd get the Keystone top...although I do wish they'd put out the roof rack mount system for the front cover on the JK.

I love the Keystone top and I'm happy I got a great deal on this one. Mine does not leak and stays very cool in the hot Florida sun. I feel the fit and finish is better than the Mopar top, but yes, it is hard to find a place to put the large front piece when you take it off.
