Question Best Soft Top Options

Hi. I just bought my first wrangler - a 97 TJ Hardtop - and I can't wait to get the top off for summer. I'd like a soft top option for the warmer months -but, something easy on/off that doesn't require alot of hardware (preferably none). something to keep the jeep dry during the week (i'll only see it on weekends), but that can come on and off quickly. oh, and inexpensive - i kinda spent my cash on the actual jeep. Are emergency tops any good? Maybe a trektop? or should i do a bikini/duster combo? help - i'm a rookie!

really depends on your budget and our preference...

you could buy a cab cover, but you cannot drive with it on. No additional hardware needed

Or a bikini/tonneau/windjammer combo. You will need door surrounds, windshield channel and a tailgate bar.

Or you could go with a frameless full soft top. For the Rampage frameless you will need the door surrounds, windshield channel and tailgate bar. I think the Besttop Trektop NX comes with everything.
