Do you prefer a black or body coloured hardtop?

I like both looks but decided on the painted top - I dont plan to take it offroad, and here in MN while the top will be off part of the year there is a good portion where I'll need it on. Ive been searching for a Sting Grey or Ocean Blue for over a month and theyve been incredibly hard to find – and when I have it didnt have the other options I am hoping for.

I ordered the black hardtop for my Bikini JLR, like the contrast and I thought it might hold up better to low hanging brush...However, I came close to ordering white and would have ordered a matching white top (still black fenders) as that is one killer looking combination!

We all have so many taste but that is the coolness feature with Jeep Wranglers. Get all body color or don't I still think regardless of color (even those bright colors) the wrangler just wears it well.

It’s definitely a matter of taste, but a factor I didn’t consider but am happy about is that the black top looks better with the Sunrider for the hardtop (in my opinion). The Sunrider is one of my favorite things about my Jeep.

This troll thread is growning weak and dying. Let's kick it up a notch. I'm not a fan of a black hardtop and happily paid to have mine color matched. It was one of the few options I wanted on my, keep it simple, C.O.D. JLR order. An un-matched top screams, couldn't afford to have it color matched. :bandit:
I'm also not a fan of angry bird grills, tire poke that gives a roller skate wheels look, an ornaite jewelry looking wheels, black interiors, fake louvers and JLU's. That covers about 99.683 % of the Wranglers on the road.

I took a form follows function approach for the desert sun. The dealer found my choices unusual and asked me why I chose them, when I explained the method of my madness he thought it was a good selling point.

Any part that can heat in the sun and transfer that heat to the interior is white (so body matched hard top). Any part that will not transfer heat into the interior is black (so no painted fenders). End goal being a solar heat defended interior with no fender pinstriping/chip issues. Since all bolt-on accessories are available in black, it fits the aesthetic and the white body accentuates them.

I’m in the black top camp but it can depend on the color as well. Darker colors and white can look cool w matching tops. All good.

New to the JL Forum, just got my JL last week and it really depends on your taste. I went back and forth on the thought and finally went with the color match just because you cant wax the blacktop.
