question about removing hard top

Hi, new to this forum. I had a 94 Cherokee that I loved and a 2000 Grand Cherokee which I also love, however it's very rusty underneath. I have wanted a 4 dr Wrangler since they came out, although there are several jeep models that I really like (Grand Cherokee, Liberty, Commander- can get a nice Commander for pretty cheap compared). I found an 08 Wrangler in Texas that I really like, but I don't know much about them- how difficult is it to remove the hard top, can one person do it and how long does it take? Same to put it back on? I don't have a garage and it rains a lot here. I have only ever ridden in a Wrangler once for about 10 minutes but it felt super cool! I don't want to buy one and end up never taking the top off though. Having no experience with Wranglers, any other advice you want to give me before I buy one (if I do) would be appreciated. Thanks!!

that sounds like I wouldn't just be taking it on and off. How long does it take? Got me thinking maybe I shouldn't get a Wrangler but I really like this one, if they come down on price some.
