I had the exact same reaction.

I readily like this wheel with the Yokohama’s and silver ring. I can’t wait to see it with the lift and 37s all around.

🙌 I’m so happy for you man. Your patience will be rewarded handsomely. That’s going to be a beautiful rig.

Put the soft top on very nice. Have about 600 miles on it feels like the engine is waking up a little and that is a good thing. Getting about 19 mpg average i will take it. Handles great very happy. Im warming up to the brown leather

These new tops are so smooth

She’s a looker, I think tan was the right choice.

I 100% agree. The soft top is so good on the JL. Anyone that hasn’t experienced one, forget everything you know about soft tops, that thing is awesome. If you don’t need the security, or ability to install a rack I can’t see a good reason to get a hardtop.

Yep. Thought about passing on my usual dual tops the soft top is so nice.

I wanted The soft top, but aftermarket hard tops are so pricey I figured I would go with an aftermarket safari top possibly down the road.

I think the brown leather it outstanding. I didn't think it would go with the my blue paint choise, but just about any other color I would have gone with the brown.

I agree. The new soft tops are awesome. Just as quiet as the hard top and I would say even warmer in cold weather. The only downside, is resale. Buyers strongly prefer a hard top.

I remember the TJ days. The soft tops blew up like a balloon on the hwy and flapped like crazy. So loud you couldn't hear the radio, or the person next to you, and FROZE in the winter 😆

That was my approach too! So many different options too...

I just want to report something maybe of interest. According to the spreadsheet, six units have been delivered so far. None of them has optioned the following packages:

• Safety Group
• Advanced Safety Group

Please note I still can't definitively say these two options are determinant factors of which units get build first. There are plenty of counter examples. But perhaps they point to a short-lived component shortage scenario.

There are about a dozen units in the next batch that are in optional equipment or just shipped. The good news is that they are more of a mixed bag - many have one or both of these packages. So looks like things are moving.
