yeah, they said i could switch out my black hardtop on my current jlConsider talking to the dealer about swapping tops with a black top model on their lot. Not sure if they will, but dealers that tend to do dealership addendums (add wheels, leather kits, accessories, etc to on-the-lot models) might be willing to deal with you on the top if they think they can put a body color top on a model without it and add an addendum to the vehicle (maybe for less that the factory would charge, but enough to make it worth while for you).
What a PITA. No disrespect to those with color matched roof and fenders but I agree, IMO it makes the Wrangler look as boxy as a CommanderIt seems you can only order now with this hardtop option. Is there any talk of that changing?
sorry but color matched top looks terrible and stupid.
I'm waiting to hear back if i can switch my black top (red wrangler) onto a 4xe color matched top when i trade in
The extra $1300 is because the dual top requires body color top. Otherwise, the top options are the same price 4xe or no 4xe (except the mid year hike).I did the build comparison today between the 4xe Sahara and the standard.
Dual tops ++$1300
Body color top ++$100
Power top ++$100
The extra $1300 for the 4xe dual top option is insane. I would tell them to pound sand over that.
Also agree that color tops are stupid on most colors, the brighter/"louder" colors especially. hydro, yellow, red (I have a red JK!). Just too much of the bright color. Looks OK in the darker greens, sliver, etc
I hated the color fenders on the JKs for the same reason, but the color fenders for the JL arent nearly as garish
Lets hope this is only a first MY issue and the prices will come back to normal. Side by side, the standard Sahara with leather and the auto is only like $2500 less than the same equipped 4xe. Its still too big of a number for me, so Im hoping they bring the 4xe down to the Sport trim. My break even price is about $3k for gas v electric. The Sahara is too rich for my blood, $50k, NFW
While I actually might wish that was true, it's hard to believe they would change the marketing of the Launch Edition this quickly. The pre-materials claimed a body color hardtop was going to be the only option for the Launch Edition. Let's see what transpires the next few days.New info: Black hardtops are now available on the 4xe's.
