Question Summer tops and summer rain

What softtop combo is the best for summer and the best at keeping your interrior dry? I wanted to get a tonneu cover,a cab curtain thing?, and a bimi top; but I was told my interrior would get soaked. Is there a top that covers the speakers on my rollbar, but still allows me to put a windjammer or cab cover with a tonneu? I'd sometimes use my windows(NY mountain roads with stick out branches).
I know the cab cover has straps, should I use old spare softtop fabric to cover up the spaces between the rollbar and the cover?

We have occasional thunderstorms during the summer here in Houston, so I keep a trail cover in the back and just run a safari top. That way I can cover it at night to keep the dew off of the seats and anytime during the day when I'm away from the jeep. My soft top stays in the garage most of the summer so it should last a long time!

Your interior will get wet unless you get a wrap around windjammer.
Bestop 80035-35 - Bestop® WrapAround™ Windjammer™ for 03-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec
Then this should cover your soundbar:
Bestop 52530-15 - Bestop Safari Bikini Tops for 97-02 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec

I think you have to buy each item individually, I checked at Quadratec.
And just on the side not, I was going to do this with my Jeep, cause it looks cool. I think that's the only reason to buy it. But once you install all three pieces, your jeep becomes a two seater car which is lame and you loose a lot of cargo space. I didnt buy it cause I'm in College so I'm always driving around with friends n I play hockey so I need space to carry my stuff.
My Jeep is made up of 11 protons because it is Sodium fine!

I only use a safari top and tonneau cover. My jeep, amps, subs, speakers and seats all stay dry. If my doors are off, I will get some water on my front seats. My jeep still has front and back seats with the tonneau on. If I need to use the back seat, I just undo the sides of the tonneau and put it behind my seat, leaving the rear still attached

I ordered that top, the wrap around from amazon, and the cheapest tonneu Quadratech offers.
