Don't have a soft top and would really like one, I have a hard top but I can't decide if I wanna do a partial trade/sale advice please
My soft top doesn't leak!Soft tops are leaky.....period, no getting around it. Now their not bad, your not going to get too wet, just a drip here and there, mostly where the tops of the doors meet. You'll get a slight wet shoulder and hip. again not bad. I did a hundred miles in rain with my setup and it wasn't bad, but this 'is' August so the rain wasn't too cold. Occasionally you will hear a loud 'pop' from the wind whip. It will be disconserting enough to make you think something fell off of your Jeep, and maybe even enough to make you stop to check. I have stopped a couple times, only to find nothing amiss. And then there's security....... Soft tops are inherently easy prey for thieves with as little as a knife... Sure the ambiance of a soft top is great when out wheeling, and likely superior in tight situations and clearance, but really.......shouldn't be much difference dimensionally really, they are about the same size. Noise is a factor, make no mistake. Soft tops are noisy and flappy in the wind at speed. If I had only one choice....... it would wind down to picking a hard top. But most of us come across a deal at one point or another and score both.
I already have a bikini top, love that thing. But I need one because my daughter loves riding in my jeep, but when it rains and I leave to go somewhere the kiddo can't come ya know. And I'm for damn sure not Rollin a hard top all summer I don't have A/Cmohozoo said:Depends on where you live and how old you are. Tend to become more of a ***** as you get older, Dont want to deal with leaking roofs, cold weather, what ever. I myself got used to the hard top and rarely put my softtop on. Get you a bikini top , and hang on to the hard top.
