I hope a new side window removal offering could be retro'd into the current hardtops. I am not going to buy a whole new top. I also like those high clearance fenders.
Never say never...anything is possible if there is enough noise made and the demand is there. They are slowly checking off the boxes for what people want. Remember, Jeep actually came up with the Diesel and 392 Hemi. No one thought they would. And now the Xtreme Recon package with 35" tires and beadlocks.Ffs jeep keeps showing awesome things but never actually sells them.
Hard top sunroof (was a concept)
Black or interior painted roll cage.
These things would just be amazing.
Half doors in certain colors and only on a new Jeep so far.Never say never...anything is possible if there is enough noise made and the demand is there.

Your list is easy. You can get more than half way there now.
*You can buy half doors.
*Jeep offer a Sun Rider top that replaces the Freedom Panels. Kind of like a sunroof in the hard top.
*The roll cage can be painted black or wrapped pretty easy.
The Sunrider top is now a factory option.Half doors in certain colors and only on a new Jeep so far.
Sun rider is an aftermarket accessory that isn't even their product, although the same company makes the mopar top.
I have a quote to paint the rollbar black for just over 1k so I'm probably doing that.
But still, with the engine options it even boggles my mind more. Will they sell more of the hemi then a sunroof for the hard top like the old ones?
The Sunrider top is now a factory option.
The Orange Peelz 2-door had a glass sunroof. This was quoted from a Mopar Insider artcle.
"There is also a new custom removable one-piece Freedom Top glass sunroof also featured on the Orange Peelz Concept."
Another quote from Motor Trend. We can thank Ford and the Bronco for it's competition.
"Among those prototype parts that could soon make their way to the Mopar catalog? A sweet set of steel "high top" fenders, modified rock rails, and a new hardtop roof design that replaces the dual removable Freedom Top panels over the front seat area with a single targa piece with a built-in sunroof.
Jeep hasn't said if these concept parts will make it to production, but we think it's safe to assume we'll see at least the steel fenders and the new rock rails available soon. We recently reported on a leaked catalog of more than 200 factory-backed accessories for the new Ford Bronco, and both big steel fenders and several options for rock rails appeared in it. There's little doubt that Jeep will want to compete with Ford's offerings, and this is probably just the tip of the aftermarket iceberg."
I'd be curious to see pricing though. There's a product called ClearLidz out now but it's *$1300*. For replacement Freedom Panel (just one, it's not a 2-part product).I got a good up close look at Orange Peelz at EJS in Moab. Another cool feature on that concept was glass Freedom Panels. In talking with one of the Jeep reps, he said this will very likely be offered soon in the Jeep Performance Parts catalog.
