Improvements to vehicles are expected with each model year and each new generation. This is especially true when it comes to fixing problems consumers found with a vehicle model. In regards to configuration improvements, no vehicle on the market took as big a leap as the Jeep Wrangler. The new 2018 Jeep Wrangler is now easier than ever for customers to configure and arrange from the hard top to the soft top. This is one of the improvements that Jeep Wrangler fans had wanted and their wish was granted. Owners of the new Wrangler will be happy to enjoy the new found simplicity of the top removal when they want to switch up their ride.
One of the reasons Jeep owners own a Jeep in the first place is obvious – topless driving and being able to do so easily. Much like a convertible vehicle, the flexibility of a Wrangler has always been apart of the vehicle, but the new generation 2018 Jeep Wrangler version has never been more accessible than now. The windshield is able to go down conveniently, more so than before. While there aren’t specific instructions given to owners, removing the top is an easy enough task. Every Jeep Wrangler comes with a tool kit to fold the windshield, remove the doors and swap the tops.
How to Remove the Hard Top
A dual-top option is available for the new Jeep Wrangler JL. Removing the hard top for the soft top or vice versa can be done in as little as 30 minutes. The hard top is bolted on with eight bolts that can be removed easily and placed in a compartment directly in the back of the Wrangler. This storage area is perfect for owners so they don’t have to worry about losing the bolts as they can be stored effectively and safely until being used again. Jeep Wrangler owners from previous generations will especially love how easy the rest of the top is removed. Two bolts hold down the top in the front and three on either side of the top are also held in place.
Taking down the rear window is simple enough as well. With a space for the electrical connector and washer nozzle to be held securely in place after removing the rear window, there aren’t any wires hanging out of the back to keep the look aesthetically pleasing. Hinge plates also need to be removed before the soft top can be added, but this can be done without tools. Side windows and rear windows are able to slide into place once the soft top is added. Clipping on the side is easier than the previous generation, which had zippers that would become slightly harder to remove or add. Customers used to be annoyed at how hard removing the top was with the Jeep Wrangler when dust collected in the zippers, but the mechanism of the soft top no longer has zippers. In as little as 30 minutes, drivers can easily have their tops changed and enjoy the new look easier than ever before!
