Unhappy Top Conversion

Ok, So essentially I am trying to turn my '99 TJ into a CJ8. I Herculined the entire tub earlier this year and realized how much I like having the extra storage space and bed. Does anyone have any idea as to which cab tops work/look the best. All I seem to be able to find is soft top cabs, but not a single hardtop (CJ8) style for conversion purposes. I live in chicago, but love getting away in my Jeep. Its been broken into twice in the past two months, so security is my ultimate goal. Is this a pipe dream?

Gr8tops that Az linked to above, and the Brute kit from AEV are the only ones I've ever seen.

Cheaper, but less secure, would be a halftop kit from this awesome company I've heard about. The part that covers the rear wouldn't be right, but it's simple and could probably be modified.
