I had half doors and a hard top. I traded them to a guy who had a soft top. I think we both benefitted.

I guess there is a reason they didn't come from the factory with half doors and hard tops.... half doors are great IMO. Again that's just me, I guess if you do a lot of highway driving and live in cold climate things are different.

I was still undecided whether I wanted to go with a hard top or a soft top. When I found my TJ, it already had the hard top. And like you, it was too good of a deal to pass up.

Horse trading is good it these situations. When I bought my jeep it had a soft top and I wanted a hard top. I searched Craigslist and found another guy that had a hard top and wanted a soft top. We traded straight across. We were both happy in the end with what we wanted

Here's how I run.

Found a set of half doors with soft uppers on CL. Not Flame Red, but Black matches the contrasting second color everywhere else on my Rubicon. Don't really see the need to pay to have 'em painted. Like most people who swap hardtop for canvas every Spring then switch back in the Fall, I swap my half doors for full the same seasons.

When I run trails or the highway to trails and have the soft uppers stowed in the back, I get *plenty* for airflow to satisfy my "wind in the hair" feeling. I mainly swap because I can lean 'way out to watch my front tire grip and the halfers are EXACTLY the height you want to rest your arm on tooling down the road.

Nice Red Rubi! The half doors with the hardtop with no uppers in just looks rugged like it should be rescuing people from tops of mountains lol. Also with the half doors (again no uppers in) your arm hangs out perfect to give the right amount of "I've got a sick Jeep and you don't)....

See this is what it should be... anytime I try to deal the other guy wants 100 dollar bills to boot. This is how it should be in the Jeep community.

It's right if your hardtop also has sides that are removable .
