Safari, bikini, im confused....

So I have a 2012 JKU and it only came with a hard top. Warm weather is on the way (hopefully) and I want a top I can just keep in the jeep incase it rains.

Do the make a top that can be just thrown on quick that's frameless to protect from the rain? I checked the rampage emergency top but according to their website they don't make one for mine.

Any info would be great. Thanks.

I also have a 2012 Hard top, I haven't even fiddled with it yet. How hard is it to take the entire top off?

Is it the kinda thing you do once a season or once a weekend?

hard top is not something you take off on a whim if you are by yourself. If you have a hoist, ok, but it is too bulky to manage with 1 person. As for how often - really depends on what you have to replace it. I would do it as often as possible. Given we are both in CO, you know about the afternoon showers (almost guaranteed) so you will want a bikini or safari to have with you. Or, you can stay at 40+ and let the rain blow over the driver's compartment.

Ok thanks caso. And ya as fr how often, I have a hoist set up in my garage so that's not a problem. Just out here we get random rain.

It also says it can't be used with hard top models cause I need some things from the soft top. Can I buy those separate and if I do and install them, can I put the hard top on over them?

Thanks

Bryce

It's really quite simple:

If you go on a safari, don't wear a bikini, or you might lose something to a pack of ravenous hyenas.

Oh wait...you're talking about your Jeep?

I know, it's confusing... I mean, bikinis can give you a hard top, so what's the deal, right? you get something to go softy and end up the other way...
