I wonder if it's related to manufacturing date of the hard top? Weird that some are white and some are black from factory.

The main reason I went soft top was because I couldn't tolerate the white Styrofoam look of the inside the hardtop

Occupation
retired due to broken back
When I took delivery of my JLUR Rubicon there was a 1/4 light white mark down both sides where the top meets the body and would not come off. I also have the same issue when the panels are taken off. I did not trust the dealer to try to clean it up. It has been looked at by two professional detailers with no luck. I have used dewaxer that is used when making gelcoat boat molds and it has lightened it up a little but its still there if you look for it. Unfortunately that is the least of the issues with my wandering Jeep......

Best way to kill the overpowering of the white inside of my hard top was to purchase a HotHeads headliner. Worked great on my Jk also

Does anyone have one from the factory that is not white? Every one I’ve seen is like that. It’s not visible unless the freedom panels are off and you are looking from above.
