Hard/soft tops

So I bought my 98 tj yesterday and it's my first jeep and vehicle. I currently have a hard top on and like how it looks however the recent amazing whether has been motivating me to want to take the top off and was wondering what you guys who are in the same location recommend. Do you think it's worth it to purchase a soft top for the spring/summer times?

Yea that's what I'm hoping to do, may I ask what soft top you have? And if you would recommend that specific one or another? I'm more going for quality instead of a budget buy.

I would go with the frameless Besttop. You can take the Windows off and still have a bikini top on . Dual use,cant beat that.

Sorry but all these options are confusing me haha. On http://www.bestop.com/products?view=...ry&id=2&cat=15 which one is the frameless soft top? Read through them all and I can't really figure out what I'm looking for haha.

I'm going crazy lmao I just can't find it. They have all these different names and it's making me insane. Could you please give me a link to a website selling the frameless soft top? I've tried googling it and searching on websites and I just can't seem to find one. Idk I'm probably doing something wrong here lol.

I run with a rampage soft top, got rid of the hard top. I've had a foot of snow on it, no problem. They're pricey, but in the winter I'm warm, and in the summer, I can take the windows out, or run without the top.
