Are you saying you've seen a Willys (with or without the Premium Soft Top) that didn't have tinted rear windows, or you saw a Premium Soft Top on another model without tinted windows?

The Willys package is supposed to include tinted rear windows, regardless of what top you choose.

Premium:



Regular:



(The JKU rear side windows do not have the diagonal split like the 2-door.)

Please tell me they would not put it under the clear coat. I never imagined that I wouldn't be able to take these suckers off.

From what I am seeing the Back Country with decals is a high disappointment. Guess I am waiting for next allocation release

Yours? looks nice. I can see the top is a bit darker. I've seen a few clear window willys. This is from a 2014 review, windows don't look tinted to me.

They are on top of the clear. If you intend to remove them, do it ASAP. The longer they are on the more difficult they are to remove.

Giant sigh of relief. They are coming off the same day I get it!

My only guess is that was a pre-production unit used for early marketing. The first iteration of the package might not have had the tinted windows. A 2016 Willys most definitely should have the rear windows tinted.

Neither of those I linked is mine, either.

Could be. I did see others but they were on sport models. Do you think this is a premium top on this? Sales guy says it is, but it doesn't say that on option list. Is there a downside to premium top? Is it thicker or more puffy when you put the top down. New 2016 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon For Sale in Barberton near Akron, OH | SUV - 1C4BJWCG6GL101215

I'm going with a black finish since I can't get rhino, and I'm probably in the minority but I don't mind the top fading with the bumpers to give a little contrast. All my heeps did and guess I'm used to it lol. But if they cheaped out on the standard top, then I might have to upgrade.

It says right on the e-window sticker: "Premium Black Sunrider Soft Top"

On that sticker, its two separate options,


Deep Tint Sunscreen Windows $ 495
Premium Black SunriderŪ Soft Top $ 500




BTW, I am getting confused. Are we using "clear" to mean non-tinted windows? Or are we using "clear" as an abbreviation for clearcoat paint?
