Soon to be Jeep owner. noob
24F Planning to buy a Wrangler in 2 weeks. First Car Purchase that is my choice and not just a working car for under 2k.

Didn't want something too new but dint want something with too many miles either, I want to be the be the one the break the car in. :)
thinking 2008-2010 2D. Considering manual Transmission.
Do want a Hard-top at the recommendation of my sister who has had 2 soft top Wranglers.

Did want to roll out in a jeep with no top and no doors at some points. Would this be something I could used to removing on my own without relying on help of a second person?

Mine is soon to be ordered too. Hi. The hard top can be removed solo but it can be dropped so 2 is better when possible. :)

You can take it off with one person, but it is very difficult. If you have a garage or a carport there are pulley-style hoists that lift the top off for you.

Welcome! :wavey:

As a female myself, I don't know how anyone can maneuver their hardtop by themselves (on or off!) Mine is a 4 door, however, so I definitely need my husband to help. I plan on only doing it twice per year. On in the winter, off for spring, summer, and fall. But I also have a soft top for emergency storms that I can handle by myself.

welcome. If you have plenty of garage space... then u can mount some pullies on the cieling and harness the hard top with some big sleeves and pull it off the jeep by your self.

I will be installing a similar set up in about 4 months in my new garage i am building.
