Re:Advice on choosing a hard top

Hello!

I am set on buying a hard top in addition to the soft one for my 2008 Jimny and change it depending on the season and my destination. There are some previous discussion on the forum but they are a tad outdated and the links don't work anymore.

These days, as far as I know I have the following options to buy a hard top:

  • A used original one. They are rare and they go for around ‎€850

  • These ones made by a local company for around ‎€530

  • These ones that are made in Greece for around €700

  • Other vendors/makers that my poor google skills did not find?

  • Is an original one but >10 years old worth it? Or is a new one made by a 3rd party better (which one)?
    Any help and ideas are appreciated.

    Extra question: Could I plan a long journey and have both my soft and hard tops (the front part) with me? Can the hard one be fitted easily in the back alongside gear?

    Welcome to the forum. Err dunno. I think perhaps a genuine one might fit better but will come preinstalled with years of UV degradation. A new one on the other hand might be a bit less likely to fit depending on the care taken in making it but it's new and fresh and will hopefully last for a long while. I wouldn't like to have to choose though I guess it would depend on how desperate you are to get one. Sorry I don't have a proper answer.

    Some brand new ones were available from Suzuki at around £1300 when I last looked

    Thank you for your answer.
    Unfortunately I was not able to find a new in my country. But even if I did, I would have been definitely discouraged by the price :)

    More of an answer this time.
    One of my daughters Jimny is such a beast ..( cabrio with hard top conversion)
    So today we tried and took the front roof section off and put it in the back ...yep it fits with seats folded up it was a squeeze but it fit in ...with the seats in the prone position it may fit a touch better because the extra roof taken up with the seat bases folded forward.
    So basically yes it fits but not much room for a lot else .
