Welcome - Nice purchase - You are going to find a ton of helpful folks on here to answer all of your questions as thing come up. You will also find tons of cool things that you never would have thought about previously. Also - where are you from? Check out WF Local Forums for Your Region and State - Jeep Wrangler Forum
to see if there are any offroad clubs groups in your area. That will also help as you will get to see many different set-ups and that can help you decide on what you like and don't like.
As for the size - I'm with the others on the Hardtop - might give it a little bigger look. If you are thinking it looks wider, it might be the color matched fender flares.
As for tops - it's all about what YOU
are wanting to do with YOUR
Jeep. If you are replacing your hardtop and selling it off - I would recommend buying a nicer more durable soft top - like the Bestop Supertop NX
- it's their new one and comes complete with factory style hardware - also has the built-in sunrider feature. If you are only looking to store your hardtop for the summer, maybe you could go with a cheaper option. Because mine is not driven everyday, I take the Hardtop off for the late spring/summer/early fall and replace it with a Safari top and park it in the garage. On rainy days - I either don't drive it or I get a little wet
