What's a good top for the summer?

So right now I have a hard top on my 06, and I took it off too early in the season and due to rain was forced to put it back on. I'm looking for a good top that I can use that'll keep the dash and all that dry but I also dont want to spend any more than $200 for a full soft top with all the hardware. I just need something relatively cheap for the summer.

Not my daily driver. So I have nothing but a trail cover. Works for me.. Well it stays in the garage when there is not nice weather..

I don't have a driveway, I have a parking lot!!! Kids!!

I hate the sun beating down on my bald head so I sport a basic bikini top. I use a trail cover for overnights and when rain is expected. It's not too bad driving in the pouring rain with it as long as it isn't too rainy and it would probably be better if my tires didn't stick out so far. It does suck when you need to pass or be passed by a tractor trailer though.

I use a Bestop full length safari bikini top w/ the drilled windshield header channel. Would recommend a top prop to keep the rain from pooling if you park uncovered. Also have a Smitty full length mesh top, which is nice in good weather as it let's the wind through and doesn't flap at all. Both, along with header, should cost right at $190.

Pull your drain plugs, take your carpeting out and get the bestop bikini or Safari with header bar. Get some extra side mirrors and take your doors off when it's nice. You'll get a bit wet with a bikini and you'll stay dryer with a safari.

That moment when you look at a really nice JK and think to yourself, "Well I SUPPOSE I could see myself trading in my TJ for one of those, but for those ugly ass door handles."
