Can someone put this man in charge of the roof design That's exactly what I would want. I want a roof with this type of flexibility and I'd like to see a soft top too.If the final JL top is fully removable like this one it should at least be possible in theory to offer a traditional soft top. Where the rear could have soft windows and bows like we have now, and the front slides forward in a track between the steel parts. With this design leaks around the doors should be greatly reduced.
I think this sketch by a Jeep enthusiast (Ruptured Duck) captures what you mean? It's got a sliding soft top and separate rear soft windows/top.
