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.

Bestop Trextop does come in a dark khaki...

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.

My favorite Jeeps of past had Khaki tops/tan 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?

Bestop makes the BST-54717-36 its a Khaki soft top. It looks good on the reds and the dark greens

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

That's what Plasti-Dip is for :thumb:

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.

ORH will do a custom job. Costs about 150$ more. best soft top out there, in my opinion

Jugh! Probably is the only colour upon which khaki would look this awfull!

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.
