Ordered my JL-Sahara 2 days ago with a Dual Top including a tan Sunrider soft top. Dealer called me back yesterday and said they could only order the black soft top at this time. Anyone else have the same issue? Frustrating that they allow you to "build" it with the tan soft top on the Jeep website, but cannot yet order. Anyone hear when the tan soft top will be available to order?

It might have to do with Jeep's organization of how they're bringing these to market that's causing this. If that's the case then maybe we have to wait a few months more?

I think it's how things are usually built at plants, they run the more common combinations first like the black soft top before producing cars with other things like the tan top. Luckily, the Wrangler isn't a limited edition kind of car, so waiting will pay off if you really want the tan top. Maybe your dealership can throw something in for the wait.

Yeah I wouldn't opt for the color change merely because Jeep isn't keeping up with production. Its likely that they've focused on the more common colors to start as indicated above, but I would hold out until what you've requested becomes available. They should certainly offer you some sort of incentive for the inconvenience, as there was no indication of this issue during your build/ordering, which could have led to different choices from the get go.

Lucky for anyone that's interested in vinyl wrapping their Wrangler will have an easier and cheaper experience than those with most other vehicles. The fact we have flat panels makes wrapping easier. I bet you can do it yourself. Most of the cost to wrap a vehicle is in labor.

It really sucks to have to consider aftermarket wraps for a brand new car, due to inadequate production of various colour options. I agree its likely to be cheaper/more simple on a Jeep due to its body style. But this wont help with the soft top issue however.

Most people I know that like the Wrangler dont' care about things like this that can be easily changed.
As long as all the things that are harder to change have been built well, there will be few complaints that actually matter.

At this point its hard to argue though that Jeep shouldn't already be behind on build options for such a new vehicle. I know its fairly simple to swap tops, but its an unnecessary/expensive alternative to being able to build your new car to your liking from the factory.
