New Owner needs advice

Hi all.
I just purchased my first Wrangler last week...2010 JK 4 door.
It has a hard and soft top.
I am a female and am wondering if there is any top out there that can be put on and off by myself? The hard top is obviously a no go for me but even the soft top we installed for the summer, but when I tried pulling the thing up to latch it and put the windows back in....forget about it. If it wasn't for my husband I wouldn't have been able to do it.
So question 1) what is the easiest summer top to manuever? and question 2) what is the different between all the tops? I see bikinis and softs and hards, and safaris?

I just need a top to keep it dry if it rains but easy on/off? an attempt to zip on my windows I jammed the zipper. the window is now just HANGING on by a messed up zipper?! (the zipper is off track). Is this something a dealer could fix? or who/where can I go to help fix a zipper?

I've owned this thing a week so far and i LOVE it but the tops are making me sooo mad.

I get my husband or fatherinlaw to help set the top on the Jeep and then i attach it by myself. The only window I have a hard time with is the rear getting it started and in each corner is a pain in the butt for me! With the side windows I velcro the back part of the window to kinda hold it up there while i attach the zipper. Seems to make it easier cause it dont have the tension of hanging there
