Summer Top Set-up

What would u guys suggest to run in the summer instead of the hard top or soft top. I want something that will keep me dry...offer protection...but if i want everything off and that wide open feeling it doens't take long to take down. Thanks. I really want something that will keep everything the most dry though. Wat do you guys run? I live in northern illinois and we get some good rain storms so...

I just bought the bestop header safari top, it seams to adequately cover the top. With my hard door windows up it mostly seals the drivers compartment. Only problem i see is if it rains a ton it will no doubt run all over the back and flood the rear of the tub. But that's why we have drain plugs

ptowntj is right on I have a safari top, bikini, windjammer and duster deck cover and I use my safari top the most but I also have a cab cover from and love it, if there is a big storm while I am at work I throw that on and it works great because the safari will not keep everything dry in the big storms
