Silly me takes off the hard top last night and puts on a rickety softop that has been sewn together once already...and of course NW Florida gots buckets of rain dumped on it today...but to my surprise only a few drops of water on the inside..
But I find my soft top noisy as heck on the highway, don't you?? My hard top is quiet!
The fastest I've had it with the soft top so far is 45...but it did start to get a little floppy on top like a flag in the wind...but as far as wind noise, it wasn't bad at all. But yes I like my hardtop better, but its starting to get pretty nice down here in Florida already so I'm going to be putting the top down soon..
I dont even own a hardtop...Softtop only, which imo makes the jeep more sexy...I got new Duratracs put on my Jeep and a friend asked if they were noisy on the highway, i answered, nope i cant hardly hear them over the wind hitting the soft top...I said this as a good thang and you can tell he just did not get it. I love my bumpy, loud, crappy stock stereo ride...Takes me back to my first love (CJ7)

Installed my new ORH soft top last week. On Weds, it was 31º here (very mild for WI), so I decided to run without one of the bikinis and the windows, just for the hell of it. Not too bad, with the nuclear Jeep heater.
Soon as we start getting 50ºs, that bad boy's coming off till Fall. Took maybe 5 minutes to remove the windows and rear bikini (no frame to mess with).
I don't even own a hard top.
