I think Ford is going to make it a lot easier and you can probably remove solo. The 4-door appears to be three separate sections (four, if they copy Jeep w/ Freedom panels). The Wrangler hard tops aren't very heavy, they're just awkward and I think having these sections will make it pretty easy and convenient.It all depends how Ford set this up. Prior softtop / hardtop experience it was one or the other. Use the soft top for summer and swap to hardtop for winter. I eventually went full softip all year long because it was just easier.
Hardtops were a bitch to fully remove alone and you needed at least two people to remove the rear.
