Smile Newbie question: What are the basic Top choices for Wrangler?

I am looking at getting a Wrangler. There seem to be many choices for the top.

Are the standard soft tops convertible? Only manually operated?

Are there Sun roof options in the hard top?

Is the soft top that folds back over the front seat standard?

Opinions are welcome.

Thank you,

Gridley

If I have this all right (and if I don't someone will jump in): I think all the softops are manual, never have seen a power softop on a wrangler. Yes, you can get a hardtop with a sunroof, or even the 2 piece hardtop where the "targa" part over the front seats comes off separate from the back. I think the soft top that folds back is a 3rd party top?

I may be crazy, but today I am ordering the 2 piece Bestop hardtop with the option roof rack to hold the targa part. Price with tax and installation, $3,300.

Yes all Wranglers are convertible, soft or hard top. Factory hard tops are available with removeable panels over the front seats. It's called a Freedom top, for the 07+. The soft top option that folds back over the front seats is called a Sunrider. All factory soft tops are manual. There are aftermarket electric soft tops out there, but they aren't easy to find.
