Answered soft, but will have the dual with the hard top for winter (just like my JK). The power soft top looks great, but I don't think it can replace the full open soft top experience for me.

I could be wrong, though. Will have to see it to be sure.

I didn't see the option for "no top", so I put soft top. :P

Manual soft top during summer. Was going to go soft year round but I’m considering a hard top for winter now. Depends on how I like the look and whether I can find a place to store it in the summer.

If you get allot of snow you'll appreciate the hard top. I hate the hard top but in winter its so much easier to deal with than a soft top. snow and cold will shorten the life of your soft top in a hurry. I store mine in the summer on a shelf in the garage raised by a winch to the ceiling.

It really depends on top quality. This is my 3rd NY winter and the top is still good as new, though the wrangler's besttop looks very thin and not much insulated if any at all. That's why MyTop is more insulated and quieter than the oem top, though at a much higher price.

May be so where you live but i'm in central Ontario and we get hit very hard in the winter. Soft tops are ok if you can park indoors all the time. I see allot of people around here with various soft tops that are destroyed after a couple winters. Even south of here around Toronto or Niagara you can get away with it but not here. I wish i could just run a soft top with a bikini for summer months.

Hard top all year around in PA. I usually remove my door in May/June and keep off until Sept/Oct. The hard top stays on at all times because I don't like the sun beating down on me and it gets super humid/hot here in the summer I'd be soaking wet by the time I got to my destination. That's not fun to me.

Missing an option - my main top will be like my JK, topless. Top is off March - Nov, and down as much as possible over the winter.

Going premium soft top this time. Looks super easy on a 2 door.
