Hard top can be removed, its just fixed with screws. Soft top is available or you can also get it custom stitched.

AC can be easily installed. If done properly then no issues of pressure on engine. Search up some threads, you will find a lot of information.

Cheers,
Raj

The AC can be fitted , but it will not be too effective . Condenser placement is also a issue , best is to place it above the rear axle

Use the super-king cooling coil / Blower combo and it will still be better.

Stock size radial equivalent is 205 . anything above will increase steering effort.

Edit- You can get a custom soft top like this one for around 10k
