I must be missing something here... apologies in advance.

When building a new JLU, the black freedom hard top is $1195 and the premium black soft top is $595.

But if you buy the "dual top option" they charge you $2295 and it seems to contain those exact same tops. Why would one buy the dual top package and pay $505 more than if you bought the two tops separately?

those prices separate take into account the price of the non premium soft top it comes with standard.
you are just paying the difference with you switch to hard or premium

Good luck finding a premium soft top for $595.

so lets say you upgrade to premium soft for 595, you would have to pay full price for hard and visa versa

that's the price on the "build your wrangler" configurator website.
That's what it looks like when looking at options. But it's really the value of the standard soft top (which you are replacing) plus an additional $595 for the premium soft top.

The hard top is the value of the standard soft top plus an additional $1195.

Also remember that when ordering the hardtop, the rear wiper and defroster switches are wired in. If you order the soft top and decide to buy a hardtop from somebody, the hardtop wiring won’t be there.

Mopar parts lists the 2 dr HT at $2371. 4 dr HT at Quadratec $3100. can't really beat getting 2 tops for $2295

Thank you for posting this. I just spent 20 minutes at the dealer asking the same exact question and my sales rep was confused because she thought the 1200 hard top and 600 premium softtop added up to less than the 2300 dual top configuration. So clearly she wasn't helpful. Then she got someone who explained that it includes the value of the factory top but still couldn't explain it the way it was explained here. So aside from UNC Rubicon's unhelpful and douchebag comment, this was a great threat!
