How do the side windows come out of the JL? Here is your answer.
If there was any reason why I’d choose a soft top over the hard top, this video just put that to rest. The hard top seems very easy to use and with multiple configurations. Unless there’s still the the dual top option....
I think the dual-top is still there, if the build-sheets and other info are correct.
Is it the same on the non-power top hard top?
Is the rear glass removable too? That combined with the removable sides may push me to the hardtop. Basically turning it in to a hard bikini top. That would be a lot of things to store though. I think I will stick to a soft top.
Keeping the faith, my friend
It's interesting listening to the guy talk about the JL and the number of modifications that were made to make it easier to customize the jeep in the suspension the bolts were the shock absorbers are what the mechanicals can support, etc. Those that say FCA Doesn't care about Jeep aftermarket are just wrong. They care because their customers care and they want them to keep buying wranglers.
Well, maybe not all the aftermarket. Wrangler is what they care about aftermarket-wise. They always have. I wish they'd allow that level of modification for the rest of the lesser Jeeps. Lift kits, etc. Encouraging more Jeepness, not less (1" lift on the Trailhawks isn't enough for some people, lol)
Thanks. I guess I wasn't really sure.
All of the tops and how they function are listed in the leaked JL owners manual from pages 108 to 149...
Thanks! By looking through there it appears that the removable rear quarter windows are only on the power sliding top. I thought it was for the hard top too, guess not. I did not see any mention of the rear lift glass being removable so I guess that answers my question.
I find one of best modifications that were done in new JL is that higher tyres can be installed without the need of "lift" the body.
The main reason for most owners for a "lift" of the body is for installing higher tyres to have more ground clearance, better "angles" (especially break-over since it is one of weak point of the Wrangler).
Now the cost of installing larger tyres is heavily reduced.
Even better in other countries since a "lift" and larger tyres need homologation by authorities and transcription of modification in the vehicle registration papers, with the associated extra costs.
As the story goes, the aftermarket was not a consideration and a pretty big taboo to engineer for (TJ era). What I think has happened is that Jeep woke up to the fact that they can make big bucks by engineering for modification and sell those exact mod parts people want. I'd guess the JL is the first Wrangler with sanctioned mod engineering in place right from the initial product planning.
"No longer is your license plate mounted here to catch a tree..."
So, we replaced it with terrible looking tail lights that stick out far enough to snag every tree in sight.
Lol. Looks to me like the Toyota FJ Cruiser was sitting in the design studio for inspiration when they started drawing up lighting, interior, etc.
The tail lights don't look like they'd catch anything, pretty smooth on the front edge of them. It was also stated that the plate moved because the gate got wider and the plate wouldn't fit there anymore.
Funny.... That's me in the last video...
