I'm guessing there will still be some sort of soft top, but it may be a frameless set of canvas panels that somehow attach to the structure. The hard top could then be a set of rigid panels that shared the same attachment points. That would actually be an improvement over the current design from a removal/installation perspective (no hoists or helper needed).

Whatever the design, I'm sure it will take them a few model years to work the bugs (air, water leaks, squeaks, rattles) out.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Would the standard soft top be similar material and quality to the soft tops on the Tjs? Some are calling it plastic but my tj tops were more what I'd call canvas. Windows are plastic of course.

The premium tops are canvas. The regular tops are plastic.

Standard soft top is vinyl. Premium soft top is worlds better and totally worth the money.

A tan (saddle) or green (olive) interior would strongly point to the Sahara, no?

Can you say 1945-47MB. Guessing Sarge will be a close proximity to the color supplied on those.
