Is this the Wrangler power top?

“Ruptured Duck” sent over a patent application that illustrates a new kind of power top — using the Jeep Wrangler in its drawings.

The top overcomes the challenges of the Wrangler shape and unique needs — including being able to operate even when there is an obstacle in the cargo bay.

The Mopar people have made their history clear, but we haven’t heard much about Autopar, their northern brethren. Why not? And what was Autopar, anyway?
