My understanding is it's a vibration issue--the hard top pushes against some of the portions of the soft top that, in turn, are spread over the soft top frame.
As you drive the jeep, the soft top frame and the hard top vibrate and slowly wear away at the fabric. Practically, it probably works fine in low mileage situations, but, eventually you can have problems and it will likely not be viewed as a Chrysler warranty issue.

Dealers say all kinds of stupid things. Their job is to sell jeeps with as little effort and expense as possible, not to make sure your jeep is well taken care of.
A good rule of thumb is this: If something doesn't make sense, seems counterintuitive, or contradicts the manual or warranty booklet, and your only justification begins with "My dealer told me . . .," then it's probably wrong.
All dealer claims about maintenance, performance, specifications, etc. should be independently verified. The frequency we see folks posting wrong information from dealers on this forum is alarming.
