Just curious

What would the cost be to convert a SW to a ST? I would think the metal top and doors is worth some good money correct?

Actually the ST parts are the rarest of the rare. I might be looking to switch from ST to SW at some point; I have had it as a convertible for 16 years now...............Anyone on the front range? Alpine White.......

Sell me your SW before you move. Buy ST when you arrive.

Not moving for a year or so now... It would be a mistake for me to sell it since it has such a great documented service history.

Ok I will take 40k cash for my 90

By they way do you have an old plastic front grill you want to move....no cracks.....need rich good not ron good.

Thanks

I was thinking of doing the same; recently started to poke around and ask questions. So far I've spoken to RN and just the parts will cost me roughly 6-8K. Includes the internal cage (Exmoor has a nice one), soft top, ST rear door, and misc other items. Beginning to wonder if should just keep it as a SW, though I do miss the ST this time of year.

I you weigh the options and decide to convert yours vs selling and buying another rig, keep the SW doors (fronts obviously). I have a ST and upgrading the front doors to SW doors was the best upgrade I've made. (and I've upgraded a lot of things) Windows roll down all the way- just as open and way more convenient than removing door tops and stowing for the same effect. SW doors seal better against the windshield and produce less wind noise on the highway. When you pull up to a drive through window you can actually reach out and grab things without performing strange contortions.

Your truck is the reason I miss my ST so much

I love the SW as well most of the year. If I had a larger garage I would try to find a project ST and just keep the SW. I have been informed that the cost is a lot more to go from sw-st then st-sw.

Oh well
