I know a lot of you have done this on your own. What type of local shop could do this type of work?
Ive done it and its really no big deal to install the top it's the finish of the interior that's more difficult.

Re: SportsMobile Penthouse Top- Used- For Sale!

This guy is just down the road from me, and we spoke on the phone. Sounded like a nice guy. I wanted that thing......like bad.....but the Mrs wasn't feeling it.

How about some talk on price....from the gallery....lots of talk about home brew tops, but how often does someone sell a perfectly good SMB top only? sorry to hijack. BYW I could steal 2k from her purse and she would never know!!!!! Yes I looked in there.

Re: SportsMobile Penthouse Top- Used- For Sale!

First off, for discussion's sake remember that different SMB locations give different answers, and the same will sometimes give a different answer on a different day!

Also, I thought getting a top installed new was around 5K, there are posts on it here somewhere.

I'd guess the aftermarket value is around 2K, but I could see someone paying 3K because it's a rare used item, or not being able to sell it at all. Above 3K and my feeling is you might as well do a new one.

Also it sounds like the ad is no longer valid, so I'm moving the post.

Re: PH Value? (was: SportsMobile Penthouse Top- Used- For Sale!

We had one installed on our extended chev last year. We left the top white (van is green) for solar cooling . I believe the total out the door cost at I-SMB was $5,700 cash. If a closer number is desired I could have my book keeper (aka: wife) pull out the bill.

Re: PH Value? (was: SportsMobile Penthouse Top- Used- For Sale!

I just had a non-painted PH top installed on my 06 Ford E350 RB a couple of weeks ago. I also elected for the PH bed, electric lift and the 12' Thule tracks. Mine is a passenger van so a little more work to cap off the rear A/C and fuss with the headliner. My check to SMB in Fresno was about $8K. Seems like a lot but when you've got kids you need the room.

Hope this helps™,
Ray

Top only installed (at IN-SMB) was $5195 (Oct/2009) . Pay in cash and no sales tax.

Sounds like I-SMB does that a lot.

Re: PH Value? (was: SportsMobile Penthouse Top- Used- For Sale!

Couple of points:
-probably not a good idea to advertise if you find a cash discount.
-be careful-those big springs can ruin your day when under pressure. Use oversized S hooks and...well...just be careful all round.
-The older arms need chrome moly inserts to keep from bending over time. Good time to insert them.
