Bikini Top and Security

I live in FL and just like the women, my jeep will be going topless for most of the summer. I will probably have the doors off most days as well. I want something that will be secure, protect from the elements and possibly a theft deterant. I do not have a garage as I live in a condo, so my hard top and possibly doors will be stored in a storage unit.

I want something I can put on my jeep at night so if it were to rain I was protected.

I want something that I could quickly cover my jeep if it were to start raining.

I would also like to drive with it if it were raining. (Trail Cover would be out).

I was thinking the Bestop Bikini Top, Wind Jammer and Dust Cover. Or the Trail cover. I would really like something that would lock or I could securt with locks. Any help would be great. Thanks.

By nature any sort of soft top isnt secure. One scumbag with a knife can just slice his way in

I understand the knife and not going with my hard top is making me less secure but what is my best option in the knife friendly tops?

To be honest R4D4R is right! I know when my soft top is on, the doors stay unlocked. Hopefully the "scumbag" will have the intelligence to try the doors first versus slicing my top. Good luck. I think your best option will be the bikini top with the wind jammer etc. but it's not theft proof.

Rampage cab

I have a Rampage Cab top that I bought through Amazon, it covers the whole front. It came with a tonneau cover(didn't mention that in the ad). You probably already have a windshield channel if you have a bikini. I have had other Jeeps with other tops before, but this one is great for rain and snow-I live in the Adirondacks and we usually have lots of snow, not this year.
It wasn't cheap, but I needed to replace a worn out soft top.
New to this site, but I'm hoping to get lots of good info here

I lived in Westchester and Plattsburgh so I feel your pain... Had to get away from the snow but miss the fall from time to time.

I also meant to mention I have an 09 4dr. I think the wind jammers on these are even less secure than the 2 door ones appear.

I have the Bikini, Duster and Wrap-around Windjammer on my Jeep right now. It looks secure but as these other guys mentioned... anyone who really wants to get in, is gonna get in.

Your best bet would be a lock box for under your seat or in the back. Or just do not keep any valuables in there.
