Well.......
IT'S A GIRL!!!!!!!!!!! :champagne:
Just got off the phone with Lois on the 866 # and she told me that Stormie was built on the 18th (a day earlier than projected), has already gone through framing, paint and inspection and is now "scheduled for shipping" (KZ). :jk:
Knowing that she's built and waiting to come home, I'm not going to be able to concentrate on shit now! :turkey:
A day ahead of schedule... Precocious child! ;)
Congrats, PhotoGuy - you sound like a proud daddy! :party:

Can the top come completely off or does it have to always stay attached like that?
It will come off completely but it looks like some work. There are a variety of arms and stuff you would have to detatch. Not sure though. My personalized Jeep website only shows the video guides for the JK. Booooooo!

Mine was "Hot Tagged". It tells Jeep to SHIP IT NOW !! My dealer took pics of it
just after it got off transporter. You can see the tag drivers side up high on windshield.

Well to be honest if yours was hot tagged it doesnt mean squat, since it took them a month to deliver it 60 miles?
You don't understand the "Hot Tag". Yes I waited too darn long. It was 1 of first
5 built. It sat there as others were being delivered. I wrote my dealer a nasty
Email that I regret as they are really good. He called his Rep that same day.
It was then "Hot Tagged" and arrived at dealership in 3 days. Why do they have
"Hot Tags" if they don't mean squat. It REALLY worked for me. They are on the
windshield for that purpose.

Worked well for me too. Once it was finally built (which hot tagging doesn't help with) the process of going from built to KZ took 52 minutes, and was exiting the yard on railcar just over a day and a half later.

To those of you who were hot tagged, did you just reach out to your dealer and request to be hot tagged? What was your process?

Jim,

The standard soft top comes with the Jeep if no optional top is selected. I was trying to point that out to you but badly it seems.

Best of luck in your search. :beer:
im on the Jeep build site now, on a 2 door sport and still do not see this option? its bewildered me for sometime.

The base sport doesn’t have the option for PST. You have to move up to the S to be able to get it. I believe the Rubi has PST standard.
