First off I just want to say how excited I am for finally getting my first jeep, a 2011 Unlimited Sahara hard top.
It has been my dream car since I was five-years-old!! I am also very grateful a resource such as this is available to jeep owners!
The issue I have now is picking out a summer top that is practical, easy/fast to install (including all the added bars since mine is a hard top), and not too expensive. I wouldn't mind being caught in the rain/direct sun all the time, but a large portion of my summer will be spend with my mother/6-year-old little brother who are not as weather tolerant as I am haha!
I would prefer something I can keep with me when the top is off in-case of rain, something could leave on if I do not want to put the hard top back on immediately, and something that someone who has ZERO jeep experience can install without any major modifications/screws/drilling.
Since I am still a college student, I can afford up to about $350 on my own but would be willing to save a little extra if it meant a big jump in quality.
Also, is there any advice for things to have/do when you get caught with the top off in the rain? I am not sure how the cloth seats/sound system/electronic components of my jeep will handle. I don't really have a reliable source of information regarding Jeeps at home so I feel a little "in the dark" about most things.
Thanks for the help!
