Soft top and summer heat in south Florida

How is it in the summertime brutal heat with the soft top completely on and the a/c going? Will the inside cool about the same as with the hardtop? i mean the hardtop radiates heat for a little while when u get in after its been sitting in the sun. The reason I ask is I have a hardtop and am thinking of selling it in favor of a soft top. I am in south Florida and have to get dressed up for work sometimes but don't want to be sweating my ass off. Wouldn't look good showing up to a meeting drenched un sweat. Lol. Any feedback from those in hot weather states would be appreciated.

The soft top will be pretty much the same as the hard top.
It will radiate heat but the interior will cool of with the a/c running.

If you have some place to store it, keep the hard top as well.

back when i had my TJ i ran a soft top or bikini all summer with the AC blowing cold. Now i'm in a YJ and AC is a thing of the past. You should be fine with the soft top and ac though.
