i personally have a 2000 4.0L I-6 cyl, i would say go hard top with a soft top on the side since my soft top has nothing but tears and rips in it. would be a bit tough finding a hardtop jeep in that price range but idk i havent really looked. as far as gas mileage i get about 16 ish right now with 31" A/T tires but i just put in a cold air intake so we will see how well that works

I love my soft top... The hard top, IMO, would be tough to remove by yourself!! AND i LOVE the noise of a JEEP ride'n down the road, so the extra noise doesn't really bother me!!!

GOOD LUCK!!!
