Ordering - some questions

OK, I've found 3 Rubicons I'm going to try and work today. I'm planning on some low offers, so I'm giving myself a 5% chance of having a new JK today, but if they accept, I'll certainly go get it! Amd you never know... last day of the month and all. None of the three are exactly what I'm looking for; they have some things I probably wouldn't order but not intolerable.

But, if they say no, then I'll actually do a build order today. Before I lock it in, I figured I'd get some thoughts from you guys.

I'm after a 2dr Rubicon, Bright Silver (1 of the three for today is, the other two are Red Rock Crystal, our second choice, but only by a slim margin), auto. May throw on the tow package. That's about it for an order.

Now, I think I'll primarily run a soft top and want half doors. But I can see utility in a hard top, too. This will be a 3rd vehicle for us, kind of a toy but will see some commuting and general running around as well as off road use.

My biggest question then, is about hard top vs half doors. Which is easier to get later on. If you order the hard top, you get full doors. I've asked and none of the dealers around here think you can get them included in a factory order, just from parts (at something like $3K). I seem to see more hard tops on ebay and craigslist than half doors.

I've seen the pipe doors and soft doors, but at this point, I think I want the real half doors. Are there other options than factory doors that are really doors?

I realize I won't be able to get power convenience group for later addition of a hard top; is this a big deal?

Anything else? The remote starter seems to be about the same as the aftermarket ones; why a factory one vs aftermarket? Don't want the 6 disc changer, but wouldn't mind a HD. But I'm not going to get the GPS (that won't even show trails and terrain!) just to get it since I can plug in any MP3 player. Am I missing any thought processes on the various options?

Thanks and sorry for the novel!
(and for those of you who are members on other JK forums, I'm casting a wide net for thoughts; that's why you're seeing it here, too)

I have always had full door on my jeeps. I like roll up windows. one of the TJ's had dual tops which was nice, and came with a set of half doors, which I think we used maybe twice. I have had hard tops.. last one sat in the basement for 2 years gathering dust.
