Wrangler hard-tops on their way

by David Zatz on

Jeep Wranglers with hardtops have been constrained by the loss of the former supplier, and difficulties by the current supplier in producing the fairly complex tops in a high enough quantity. This has been a problem for sales, as the Wrangler hard tops, despite the considerable expense, outsell the soft tops by around three to one. Chrysler has just told dealers that the production issues should be resolved with the supplier ramping up over the next two months; starting with the May production month, the ordinary 75/25 allocation of hard tops to soft tops should be possible.
