Used to my top would be down all the time, I could run outside and put the top up at work if rain was imminent. If the chance of rain was 30% or greater then the windows would be in the back. Otherwise, a quick pop up shower I might pull the top back up to keep the seats dry (I hate a wet butt).

An 11 week old baby put the kabosh on topless/doorless driving.
But even without the kid, the soft top will be up in the rain or snow, and the hard top will be going on at the end of the month.
I love the sun rider option. My 3 year old is in love with the Jeep, but doesn't like the son shining in his eyes. So I ride with the front portion back and the back window unzipped. He loves it and I don't have to worry about him getting burned or too much wind.
