Crap crap crap . I was all set to order a whtie jeep with tan interior and tan soft top> Now it will have to be a black soft top and I am starting to re-think the white. Maybe I'll go with sting gray. Is it avalible to order yet?
I was thinking white with a tan top amd tan cloth as well. FYI, my dealer had a tan cloth JLU and we parked next to a tan top JK Oscar Mike. Different tans. The seats are more yellow than the top. The JK tan top is similar, atleast to my memory, in color to a tan TJ top. So im thinking the tan JL top will be a similar color if not the same as the JK top
Yeah, saw it yesterday when I went to check on some pricing. Latest is the tan top won't be available for order until 2 April according the Jeep Cares reps. Frustrating since this is the only option holding up my ordering the new Jeep.
Interesting - happened checking my Navy Federal account this AM and noticed they have a car buying service. Pricing wasn't as good as the affiliate program but you could build a Wrangler and it would give you invoice pricing. It still had the Premium Tan Soft Top as an option which I checked - what was interesting is it automatically added the 2.0L engine option which indicates the tan top is only available with that engine as mentioned earlier in this thread. Sent a post to Jeep Cares to see if they can confirm this - 2.0L is not my engine of choice but at least it is only a $890 bump (more worried about reliability/expense than cost).
My next thought is will/can my local Jeep dealer order the tan top separately and just replace the black top when it comes in?
Agree, this makes zero sense but then again common sense can be in short supply sometimes. Anyway, happened to be at my local dealer today checking out a Rubicon they got in. Salesperson said they should have no problem ordering the Premium Tan Soft Top as a standalone part order when it is available. My work around, if ordering it on a build requires the 2.0L, will be to place the order with a standard top and then go to the parts department and order the tan soft top.
Just wanted to follow up on this and see if there was any clarity on the tan top option.
- Apparently Jeep Cares stated it would be available to order on April 2nd - yesterday. Is it?
- People have commented that it was removed from the configurator on jeep.com. I just checked and it's currently listed as an option. If it was ever removed, it's back.
- Someone mentioned that the tan top option would require the 2.0L engine (which would be insane) - however, the on-line configurator doesn't require it. Any truth to this dependency?
I gave up on the tan top and ordered dual tops with black soft top nine weeks ago. Still waiting..... I still hope to get a tan top some time ( I ordered granite with tan seats and I think the tan top would look good.)
