Question intresting question on rubicon

I was wondering if the wrangler rubicon comes with soft top or soft door top. or is it just hard top hard doors and you have to buy the soft stuff. because I got to thinking I have never really seen a rubi with a soft top(but then again i have never really looked that hard).

I sell Jeeps on the Intenet!

You can get 1/2 doors and a soft top.

Most come with Full dors.

It also comes in a Hard top only

Or you can get the Soft and Hard top with full doors.

This is my Rig from Last years Jeep Jamboree, Ive done a mods since last year.

Soft Top Rubicon

This is a Rubicon with a soft top, front part even folds back. Friends of ours just bought this, only a week old.

During the 2006 MY DC has seen fit to allow Dealers to also order a "Sun Rider Soft Top" as an opgrade to the newer Jeeps.

The Sunrider comes on all the LWB Unlimiteds with a Soft or Dual Tops. I guess DC thought it would make a cool option for SWB Jeeps too.

Just want to add that the reason we always keep the hardtop on, is because of the full carpeting, and plushness of the interior. It is a daily driver for the wife......so is nice to keep clean. Not to mention that A/C is really a big thing, here in Texas, and it is most effective with the hard top on. The YJ that I am building will have Rino linning for carpet, and will never have more than a bikini on.........lol

I have the hard top as well as a soft top for mine. The hard top has been sitting in the back yard for a couple of years now. The AC works just great in the Memphis summers (when the top is up) and the heat will burn you up in the winter. Get a soft top, there is nothing like that open top feeling and you can still keep the inside clean.

I believe it all folds down behind the back seat like a convertible. You take the windows out so they don't crack when folded.

i was hoping that is the case as it would be alot more versitile that way. i wonder if the new multi-peice hard top on the 2007 wrangler is able to be stored onboard. from the pics i've seen looks like maybe if you take the back seat out.

anyway thanks
scott

When the Dual Top is ships to you from the factory the soft top is attached to the roll bars inside the Hard Top.

The book says as soon as you get your Jeep Home you should remove your hard top and disconnect the soft top for storage it warns you the top could become abnormally wear and damaged it if you keep it on with the hard top.

The Factory turns the soft top inside-out on the frame so it can fit. This is not easily done the second time around. It’s darn near impossible to recreate the factory packing.

It’s like trying to get the pots and pans back in the box they came in new, on Christmas after six Eggnoggs.

My advice if you want both tops get it that way, but If I were you I’d only drive with one or the other for prolonged periods.

My brother in-law has a unlimited, with the sun roof, and it does all fold down behind the seat, without removing the back seat.

I know that this is off topic drummerwookie, but how many mega pixels do you have in your camera? I have a 8.3, and have to shrink my photo's down like crazy to post on here. Just noticing how large your pic's are. Maybe I should lower my pixels on the camera. Just curious.........thanks.
