Whether you go for a soft top or hard top, or both, depends on how you use your vehicle. Hardtops offer more security and better insulation, for a quieter ride and better HVAC performance, but they’re more difficult to remove and install, requiring 2 people or a hoist. Soft tops offer more flexibility; you can raise or lower the top as needed in minutes. Many owners use a hard top through the cold winter months and then have a soft top for the summer.
