Jeep Soft Top Recall
 
I was wondering if any of you guys have received this. I got it in the mail yesterday stating that they would be recalling tops for 4doors who have a history of wear and leaking. They stated that they would be adding shields to the braces and if they find pin holes they will replace the top with a new one.

I can vouch that I do have pin holes in mine just behind the second set of bracers, will see if they try to fight the new top or not. I have the tinted windows on mine and hope they dont try to give me a non tinted soft top. Too bad they won't just buy me a new Trek top

I think there's already a thread about this.

I read through but haven't seen anyone actually mention getting a recall notice like I did.

I got the recall also, getting it taken care of this weekend.

Are there particular years for this? I've been cruising craigslist for a while looking for a new soft top for my 08 JKU. Be great if I could just get one from Jeep.

It just says 2010 & 2011 model year 4 doors

Well I have an 08 but my top is from a 11. How would that work for me?

Hell I would try to take it in and show them it was an '11 top and try to get them to replace it. May take some talking to do, but may be able to pull it off.

I've got a mint unused 08 JK top that a buddy with a new 11 JK wants to talk me out of.....my impression is they are not the same and it won't work.

Anyone know for sure?

As soon as I get a minute to put my SuperTopNX on, I'll have a factory soft top from my 09 available if someone is in need...

I just had it done last weekend. It was an RRT which was escalated to a full-fledged recall on 8/26.

All it consists of is four small pieces of black plastic on both sides of bows 2 and 3, each held on with a black zip tie.

From what I was told, if they replace your top, it is only the skin. You keep your frame, hardware and windows.

Here's a picture I snapped at lunch. This is the 2nd bow. The piece on the 3rd bow is almost completely hidden until you take the top down.
