I had a JK Rubi and now a JL Rubi. The JL is much smoother, much quicker,y, handles much better.. I have the premium soft top. I decided the ease of loading in the back cargo area with the hardtop didn't outweigh being able to put my top down in 1 minute or less. On the highway, the top is pretty quiet up to 75 mph. I daily drive mine and will put 12k-14k a year on it. No complaints at all, no issues, great Jeep (my 3rd)
This is what I did but only so I can use the hard top on vacations where I may need to lock my luggage in it temporarily while eating or something.
