Getting back to your original question, they do come up for sale as second hand on here and ebay occasionally. You would be looking at around $1200 and up for one.

Double Black OffRoad have them on sale right now for $3000

You can pick up a second hand hard top for about $1000 at the moment.

As people said before, 95% will come with the hardtop... ask the seller, don't just take Gumtree or Carsales' word for it.

Considering the hardtop has no insulation and is extremely thin and light, I very much doubt there would be much of a difference in they way they would retain heat.

The only problem with a soft top is that there is no rear wiper or demister.

You can buy insulation kits for them though

You can, they are pretty cheap now and you use double sided tape to stick on the Velcro to the top. They do tend to fall off a lot though unless you are happy to contact cement them directly to the top.

My concern is parking in snow, that the top will sag and maybe some moisture will work its way in. Just driving around I had no issues with temperatures getting down around 0, have found it more noticeable on very hot summer days where the heat radiates through from the top, aircon keeps up though.

I had these on the hard top and reckon they made a reasonable difference. I used the 3M cement tape and the ones on the roof never budged, the side window surrounds kept coming off though so I ended up just leaving them off.


Overall I don't think cabin temps are a problem, road noise increases and parking outside it is not as secure. Biggest thing for me is having to remove the rear window to get bulky items in.
