soft top or half top

I don't have alot going on today and last night I was messing around in my garage and I was looking at my half top that I got from the po. And today I was thinking about throwing it on just for a different look and was wondering if, for going top less quicker this may be the better route.the half top looks brand new. My soft top is very nice also. I have a hard top with full hard doors. A soft top with all soft doors. A half top and the I believe everyone calls them the boomerang door surrounds. I was wondering if any could give me a slight idea of whether I will need to use the boomerangs and whether half tops are worth using? I have heard that they leak sometimes. I would like to use the soft doors and half top, is that going to work? Thanks everyone :-)

You need the door surrounds with any soft top configuration. Half tops are great if you don't need the backseat.. They look cool as heck, IMO. Look up JP2611 on here, he runs a half top most of the year and his Jeep is red too. You'll get a good idea what it looks like..

Now I wish I had some half doors... Lol. I'm using my iPhone now so I can't get into their profiles. I just see the little small profile pic. But I have a general idea from his pic. Thanks :-) I don't have to completely remove the rear seat do I? I can just fold it down right? I do have to remove the whole soft top frame though right? The bow!!! Damn...

Not sure if you have to remove the whole soft top or not, yes you can fold down the back seat. Removing the top is easy, 4 bolts and lift it off.... Nothing to it at all....

I cleaned her up and took the roll bar pads off :-) I think it looks much better with the pads off.
