OK. Like I said before, I'm a newby.

What's the point of a hard top and doors? My ht and doors are pristine. I just don't see a point in using them. Does it have something to do with cold weather? Our winter consists of maybe 2 weeks of temps below 40 degrees. Usually, any thing below 90 degrees is considered "cool". We normally get lots of rain. Been a drought lately.

I don't have a soft top. Should I consider one? Which one?

Re: Tops

I have had both tops and have decided that a soft top is best for me. Rain is the main form of weather that we get in the western Pacific NW. The hard tops all sweat inside due to the humidity, so the inside is wet anyway. On the other hand, the soft tops all leak. I just keep a towel handy to wipe down what needs to be wiped. (I did have to scrape ice off of the inside of the windshield while driving down the road in a snow storm with a soft topped CJ-5 once.)

I think that a hard top is good if you want to lock you doors like a regular car, otherwise get a soft and a bikini top and have fun!

Re: Tops

Here in Flagstaff, we average nearly 8 FEET of snow per year! Below zero temps in the winter here are not uncommon.
My hardtop will come in mighty handy!
