The Jeep website mentions 3 soft tops in tan: Standard, Premium, then another Premium that is $200 than the black premium. What is the difference?
Could be 2 door vs 4 door styling.

So you’re saying that @JHTS , the only poster to this thread who has no confirmation bias (because he owns both tops), is a sucker? Alrighty, then...
I believe his reply was to JandS’s question of the 200$ more premium top.

If you option out a 4 door Sahara (and some other models) all 3 options are there.
I took a look and it does show 3 options. The first shows a price of $0 and when selected it upgrades you to the dual top group. The black premium upgrade is 595 and the Tan premium upgrade is 795. So it looks like their are 3 choices but only 2 premium soft tops.

Yeah, the "standard" Sahara top is also listed as a "premium" top though.

I don't see standard as an option for a Sahara, only premium soft top. The premium black is 595 and the premium tan is 795. You're paying an extra 200 just for the tan color.

I have the standard. Bought it after we bought the Jeep. I haven't noticed any shrinking or stretching in mine. I live in WI. Have used it in anywhere from 45* to 100*. We use it during spring summer and fall months. In winter Jeep is stored once they start putting salt on roads. We are happy with it. Its not a smooth vinyl, Im not sure how to describe it, but it sure seems closer to thick canvas than vinyl to me.
