D 90 buying advice

Hello- New to posting the forum-been reading it for quite awhile...
So looking to get into a D90.

I am trying to convince my wife we need a 4th land rover (have a few Series 109's and a 89 RRc)

Looking at a 97 hardtop , automatic defender. I live in MN so probably the hardtop is the way to go for me however wondering if the 97 hartop can be converted to a soft for the summer.

I did a little research and sounds like it is difficult if not impossible. Are the 95 or early a little easier to do both?

Here is what I read
Land Rover Defender. There are three types of Defender on the market in the US: grey ... The hardtop 1995 trucks had a removable (with difficulty) plastic hard top. 1997 trucks had either a soft top or a full metal (not easily removable) hardtop. ...

Getting a NAS ST cage is expensive as is the top. It is easier to get a ST and fit an aluminium hardtop off a ROW truck like a POE.
