There are some differences in the wiring plug ins on different year hard tops. Depending on the year of your Jeep, and the hard top you are considering, there may be some wiring modifications needed.
I have all three tops. Soft, hard, and Safari. I have a garage to store the hard top in. If it was not for my garage, I would sell the hard top. It has not been on the Jeep in almost 3 years. I just use the soft top and the Safari top all summer.
, good hard tops are hard to find at a decent price. You could always do the trade, and get a frameless top later if you feel the need.
Quite the conundrum.
