i just bought an 11 sahara with matching top and i love it,,but as mentioned,its a pain to remove even with my wife..but i wouldnt get rid of it for anything,,
now on the other hand i live in virginia beach and it can be quite warm around here,so having a soft top would be ideal..but at the moment i dont have a garage and some of my neighbors have sticky fingers so i prefer not to make it any easier for them, as of now..im moving shortly and will be in a garage and one of my first purchases will be some sort of soft top,,i like the one kate mentioned..but im not the "mudding" guy im the "mountain man",,,we do lots of snowboarding and drive through some crazy frigin mountains,,and it can be quite cold,(we are up north new york very often),,so for those times in the winter,,i think i would also like to have my hardtop..
i guess what it comes down to is
C. what you will be doing
D. paymens of course (lol) wait not a joke
P.S. my step dad has owned jeeps pretty much my whole life but until i bought one,i never realized how much gas costs and how bad of millage they get,,,,this would never turn me away from owning the vehicle,but its something you might want to keep in mind,,77 bux to fill it yesterday and because i have such low millage,im only getting 14.7 mpg..lol im sure it will go up but i have another vehicle im trying to sell that i drive around until its sold...well just my 2cents....good luck with ur buy and welcome to the forum,,the people here are the best people ive met on the net..
