2016 JKU in Sarge w/Tan soft top

From whats been posted looks like a return of the tan top!! Awesome. But for those of us looking to order a Sarge JKU with half doors will the tan top be an option or will we have to settle for the standard material black top? Any word on this?

Re: 2016 JKU in Sarge w/Tan soft top

No word, yet.

The chances are close to nil that you'll be able to get half doors with the Premium Tan Sunrider Soft Top. Bestop doesn't make the half door uppers in the Premium fabric, so unless they're doing some secret production for this new release, I wouldn't bank on it.

Jeep doesn't sell enough half-door Wranglers to make it worthwhile. The JK only has about two years of production left, and the JL will likely come with a different soft top altogether, so the odds are low.

But, I've been wrong before, so we'll have to wait and see! Maybe JL's will come standard with premium soft tops, and this is the test phase for it?! Of course, it's also possible Jeep could be phasing out half doors for the JL line.

Re: 2016 JKU in Sarge w/Tan soft top

As suggested, no word yet.


Though, it would not surprise me that Sarge will be offered only on some special edition, like Xtreme Purple, and special editions tend to not offer 1/2 doors. I feel that way because Sarge isn't on any official paint color list (ie, in the 2016 brochure) which means it is suppose to be another very limited availability "surprise" color for this model year .

Currently, half doors are only available with standard vinyl top. You cannot order half doors with the black premium soft top, as the soft upper door panels are not made in premium fabric; based on that, I think it would be safe to assume that you will not be able to get half doors with the tan premium soft top. The only way I see it happening is if it were to be offered on some special edition, but given the rarity of half doors, I'd say it isn't going to happen.

I agree. The first Jeep I ever fell in love with was a brand new dark green '97 TJ with tan top and tan interior. I was 10, and swore that would be my first car. I've had 9 white cars since getting my license, but if I could, I'd seriously consider a Tank JKU with tan top and saddle interior.

Re: 2016 JKU in Sarge w/Tan soft top

had a 94 YJ Sahara green, tan top half doors...awesome. I believe back in 94 or 95 for one year they offered a flat green paint option felt like sandpaper.
