So how do fellow soft top owners use their tops to go "incrementally" topless?
- Sunrider position?
- Sunrider with windows off?
- Top down?
- Top off but tracks and frame still remain?
- Too off and tracks and frame removed as well?

Going down these list of options seems to increase the work/reward ratio.
Thoughts?

So far safari mode has been my go to. It keeps the sun off the kids and when it’s cold in the morning the heat still works great.

otherwise it’s top down, sun rider not much. This will probably be my go to here now tgat I got the sunshade installed.

Safari or top down. No reason to remove the tracks and frames. Although i think that looks better like the hard top removed.

I typically do safari or top down.

Typically I either go with sunrider or top down, but sometimes safari. For me, there's no reason to have the windows out in sunrider mode, just put it all the way down.

And taking the top off isn't worth the effort (should just go with a hard top then).

Top down. When I had 2 Jeeps to would take the top off one and leave it off.

Top down most of the time. Safari mode when the mornings can be in the 50's.

I love safari mode. Open air, but keeps the sun off. Especially like it with doors off.

I like safari mode too, but I like being able to look up at the sky too much to use it a lot.

I keep my Spiderweb Shade on permanently and it’s great.

I will put it in Safari mode when it gets hot and that is still a fun way to go while cutting down on the sun. It’s also helpful for trips to Lowe’s :like: :
