  • Hard top vs. Soft top

    I have a black with tinted windows hard top...that is hardly ever on my jeep unless its snowing or its cold as hell! I was thinking of selling the hard top and getting the soft top with tinted windows. Any input? good or bad?

    Thanx Mike

    After running with a soft top (BestTop Supertop) only this past winter I decided to sell my hard top as well....I like the look of the soft top better as well.

          I used to run my hardtop in the winter and put the soft top back on in the spring. Worked out good until I started wheeling in the winter and cracked the top...I sold it after that.

          I liked the hard top during the winter though. Seemed warmer and quiter and I could use the scraper on the windows.

            I sold my hard top because I really didn't have anyone to help me load and unload it. It was a pain and I don't miss it at all even in the winter!!

              I only have a soft top on my 2000 TJ. I had thought about getting a hard top until I replaced my old soft top with a Bestop Sailcloth RAT. It's quite enough I don't want a hard top now.

                The sailcloth soft top is just as warm as a hard top, road noise is not much different. Biggest thing is if you get lots of ice, you can't scrape the plastic windows, and the rear window does tend to get dirty and no wiper there.

                  That is true. I guess I don't notice so much because my TJ lives in the garage when not being driven. :-)

                    not in the north when you get 3 plus feet of snow and the temp goes south of 0, but other than that I would agree topless is the route.

                    I am with Magoo on this one. I rock the soft top from 1 April to 1 November then put on the hard top for the winter. Half the time the soft top is just folded up in the rear.

                      Mike, Hardtop vs softtop is kind of like a stick vs auto question. It is very much a personal preference. Since my TJ is my DD, I prefer the hard top in the winter. If I go Christmas shopping, I can lock everything and not worry about someone getting in. Plus over the long haul, the hard top will outlast the soft top, especially with all the chemicals they throw on the winter roads here in Beaver Valley.

                        I agree with Buster. You can ask what everyone thinks, but everyonde is in a different situation. You have to be able to tell everyone's mode of thinking and make your own choice!
