I bought my Jeep after moving back to Florida so I got a soft top. I just put it up yesterday because of afternoon rain storms and no garage parking at work. If I had gotten the Jeep before moving from Indiana I would have gotten the hard top for winter. I just don't understand why someone in Florida would have a hard top Jeep. I take mine down every chance I get. I like the look of the hard top and would like to have one, I just don't have a place to store it and pop up showers happen in Florida year round.
