New to the forum and need some help

Hello every one, I owned a 1984 CJ7 back in the day and it was great. I had it four years and always missed my Jeep, so I am finally getting back into one. Problem is a lot has changed in almost 30 years, so where do I start, first do I buy a two door or four door. I like the way the two door looks due to that is what I was always use to from the past. I am looking to buy a brand new 2013. I am buying this vehicle for fun not a daily driver. I do plan on taking it off road now and then but it will mainly be using it on road, top off, doors off and just having fun. I have two daughters, 15 and 20 and they will most of the time, not be with me. The past two weeks, I have looked and test drove both two door and four door. Where I am right now is pretty mixed up since there are so many options. So have on one hand a four door Rubicon, Automatic is the only option and that is in my price range or I could go two door Sport / Sahara with all the goodies, Nav, auto, etc. I really like the Moab package and look but can't find a lot of them out there and that is an expensive package. My other craziness is do I buy a hard top or soft top? Have not found many with the dual tops. I think the hard top would be nice and then add a soft top later. I am ready to pull the plug as early as within the next 24 hours and buy one but just can't decide what to buy. Then too top things off, I need to pick a color. Too many decisions to make. Any help from the forum with some decisions what be great. I understand whatever I buy it going to be a TON of fun and be great. Thanks for your time and I will be looking on the forum all the time. I can't wait to get one. I am like a kid at Christmas. I guess it's a JEEP thing. I would love to have a 10th Anniversry Rubicon but between the cost and how hard they are going to be to get one, I just figured going with something I can find now. I am located in Maryland. Thanks, Frank

Any suggestions for a soft top that installs and uninstalls quickly? I currently have a hard top and am looking for a solution for summer fun.
