with the release of the late arrival colors (blue for me) in the next few weeks, should I order with dual tops or do you think the power top is worth waiting for?

I am waiting for it. No place to keep a hardtop. My last Jeep had dual tops. Once it was off, never used it again. Power top Rubicon for me.

If it is what you want then you should wait for it.

My wife keeps asking me when I am going to order and I tell her that I will order when I can get what I want - in my case Sting-Gray.

If I caved and bought another color every time I saw a Sting-Gray I would regret it.

I’m not sure if it’s what I want. I don’t know how “open air” it will feel looking in the mirror and still seeing my back window. If that back window could come off I think it’d be a no brainer. But a soft top the back window can’t open up, and the hard top is a pain to remove and can’t go up in a jiff if rain moves in

I think it will be like a really big sunroof. It's cool how the back windows come off but I bet in practice people rarely do it.

They all have compromises so you just have to figure out what makes sense. I am a soft top guy all the way but I don't live in Buffalo!

They seem to be taking the power top demo jeeps to the auto shows. You may want to check the auto shows coming up in your region. Would be much sooner than seeing it on a lot.

You can also see Ocean Blue on a Chrysler 300.

Hoping to get a JLL
Any idea when the power top will be available for order? I’m waiting until I can order a sting grey with the power top. I need to park it outside so although the dual top may be in theory better i just don’t see my self taking them off as much vs with the power top flip a button and you are open air.

You can remove all the windows on the soft top.

This document hasn't been totally accurate but it says May.

I was referring to the power top. I don’t see me ever removing the windows on a soft top unless the whole thing is coming down lol.
