Lol well as quiet is a jeep can get without going hard top and full metal doors. I hated driving on the highway with my soft top. Although since I have full soft doors it's still a bit noisy, but not near as bad as just the soft top itself. It's all whatever you'd prefer really.

I have full doors thankfully. I think I may start looking for the hard top. I'm slightly afraid of getting womped like we did this year and something happening to my soft top.

Yeah for winter I love my hard top. The good thing is that When spring is coming around you can switch to your soft top if you want. But I'd personally never use my soft top again for winter, but that's just me.

I think if I had one I'd never use the soft top for winter again either. Is it difficult to take all the hardware off for the soft top to put the hard top on?

For mine it wasn't too bad. I had a couple screws in each pole that were mounted to the jeep itself. The soft top comes off pretty easy. My hard top went on pretty easy as well, just simply layed it down in position and bolted the sides down to the jeep and a row of screws at the top where it sat on my windsheild. I also had a plastic bracket for each door to help seal the soft upper doors with the soft top. Keep in mind that my jeep is an 88' YJ though.

I like my hard top for winter because it has a rear wiper on it so you can see out the back! Road spray is a killer. And you don't have to worry about how heavy snow is. Just look at this.

I just got my jeep last fall so last year was my first winter. And it came with the hardtop. I went through over a gallon a week of wiper fluid over the winter I had to clear it so much to see properly. And if I ran a soft top i would go crazy not being able to see

You can always go dual top. Lay your soft top down. Bundle it up tight then clip the hard top on over it. It will fit without ever taking the soft top off.

You take off from a stop light and feel like the car behind you is going to rear end you every time you push the clutch in to shift...
