I'm just doing my 'research' for my 'soon' Wrangler purchase. It will be a daily driver(+fun), will the soft top be too noisy on the expressway? I live in Michigan, what about weathering with the soft top? I know there is a big difference in $$$$ for the hardtop/soft. I was thinking that buying one with a hardtop would be better and then getting a soft top - for $$$. Part of the problem, there aren't many Wranglers for sale in my area - they're either really beaten or brand new. I know it will take me awhile to find the 'right one'.
