True that. I hear a lot about frameless rag tops. Don't know if my roll cage will work for that but it's a hellva lot cheaper then rag top with frame.

ChicoJeepy Oh just found a hard top for cheap like $500 bucks and it came off of a CJ7. Have no clue if that would fit. Might be able to get his hard doors in the deal as well.

ChicoJeepy I found a complete soft top and hardware except for the upper half doors. The guy wants $375. Sounds like a great deal because on Ebay I found for around $600 but there's a problem. The rag top on CL is listed for 97-06 and my Wrangler is a 93.

In the summer anyways.

Here in Oregon hardtops and doors together are from 1500-2000 in fall and winter. So if you see something don't wait until you need it...

Willybusmc Go with the soft top man. You'll love being able to go topless in 5 minutes. If your really worried about theft, just don't leave anything of real value in the jeep. I've never had a problem and I spend most of my days topless and doorless

The Silver Gorilla I am in florida and only have a bikini top and love it! All i did was upgraded my center console to a tuffy one for security. just keep your doors unlocked so your top dosnt get slit

Rag Top vs Hard Top

Trying to decide between both of them. I like the Hard Top for obvious reasons so nobody will cut into it or anything like that but I live in California and having a Soft Top would be nice to drop the top and enjoy the sun. I don't really want to pay over a grand for a Hard top along with the 500+ doors.
