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.

Before:


After:


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! :koolaid:

I think it's a neat idea and it's something I've been considerning myself (half doors and hard top)

However, I like the contrast that the hard top provides, so I'm not sure I'd paint it.

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.

a black top and the top half of the B-pillar should be blacked out too, kinda sticks out between the doors

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.

Thanks for the feedback!
