Why no tan top for JK?

I think it would go great with a tan or green jeep with a saddle interior. Is there an aftermarket top in this color anywhere?

I was bummed that they don't offer that anymore either. I think it would look good on my white Jeep with saddle interior. There are a couple of aftermarket soft tops that you can get in khaki. I think Pavement Ends has one. Too bad the Bestop Trektop NX doesn't come in anything but black. That is the soft top that I want.

I would like one of the Bestop trail covers in khaki. The black and gray just doesn't look as good with the saddle interior.

I have the Natural green and with all the back it just blends together.
I would like some contrast but I hate chrome accessories. Green and tan
use to be an option. I would like to get my hard top painted tan. Dune maybe?

That looks hideous on that 4 door. Ugh. It might look ok if it was a much darker green.

Khaki top was a limited production run with Khaki interior on Sahara's in 07 and 08. The Khaki is a bit darker then the tan. Not sure it was even offered in 09. Not very popular so probably a reason why afterMarket isn't offering too much. I know in my area out of hundreds of JK there are very few Khaki's and my son and I own 2 of them.
A couple older photos hard and soft top.

I have no clue as to why Jeep pulled the tan tops for the JK's'....but it could because what Jeep called "tan" wasn't really "tan"....it was more of a brownish-greyish-green color.

Jeep need to bring back "Spice"...that was a wonderful color. My original goal was a Winter Chill JKU with saddle leather and a tan (spice) top.

What front bumper is that? Looks like a police style mounted on the stock?

+1 Some may like it but, from a sales standpoint, its completely understandable why jeep scrapped it.

They looked good on dark green Jeeps. That is about it.

how has the rough country soft top help up? I just bought a 2012 Black JKU Sahara that came with a black soft top. Im considering going with a spice soft top for some contrast.

Does the Rough Country top mount right on the factory soft top frame?

I've been looking for a tan/khaki too for a long time (well not too hard) but I want one so I can paint the wheels and fenders the same color. I think green with khaki accents would look good. Tired of the "black"

I bought a Rough Country top over black friday weekend. Installed it about 6 weeks ago and I really like it so far. Being winter though, I haven't really "used" it yet.

The tan top has really grown on me, and I wish Jeep would offer a factory one again. That being said, I just ordered the Rough Country Spice top for my JKUS, and it was $99! Honestly, for that price, I might pick up a second one just for funzies.

Did you choose to go with the Khaki specifically, or was it just a replacement top? I've done a little reading about them, don't think I've seen one in person, but have heard they are more on the gray/green side.
