Hard Top Removal/Attachment

I'll have my first jeep within the month, but was wondering about hard tops. Most likely I'll purchase a YJ with just a soft top, but I wasn't clear on how much of a difference it makes. Do you use hard tops during fall/winter (rougher weather), and soft tops in the warmer seasons? Also, how difficult is it to attach/remove a hard top? -Thanks

Jeepless...for now...

Do yourself a favor and get a jeep with full doors and a hard roof. I bought my YJ with half doors and a soft top (which I later sold for $350). And I upgraded to a Hard roof with full doors. You ill find the only advantage with a soft top is that it is easier to take off. A hardtop is 10X more quiet, does not leak, and is more secure.

I spend a day building a hoist to remove and store my hardtop, but you can buy one from Quadratec for just over a hundred, I think. I have found that i can take the hardtop off faster using my hoist, than the original soft top. Then you can leave the doors on or just pull them off too.

P.S. Anyone looking for a 1 month old gray supertop with rounded corners for a YJ???
