PATENT 6,921,077: (Jeeps)Roof top for vehicles

Abstract - A removable rooftop for jeep-type vehicles is provided. The rooftop comprises a top wall. Extending approximately perpendicularly from the top wall are first and second side walls. The rooftop is removable and is of a half-cut design. The rooftop is a hard top and is lightweight, allowing a single person to mount or remove the rooftop from the jeep-type vehicle. Additionally, the rooftop comprises a support wall integrated onto the top wall to allow for a sunroof to be installed into the rooftop if desired.

remember those door handles on the 99 Charger concept? That's what this is. If you look at the images in the Patant documentation it looks quite similar to those.

yes, but only the "front half" (and with room for a sun roof). Again that's what is shown in the patent document images.

Yeah, I had trouble figuring out what was being said about the handle pattent but some reason I had a feeling that's what I was looking for, the Charger Concept doors.

I still don't understand how they work though or what they'll be applied to. A "Charger" coupe, the Challenger, (or the Challenger that will actually be the "Charger" coupe)?

And I'm lost on the Jeep thing.

Thanx for the info,
KyleD.

Jeez, I sure am glad they registered Rocky Mountain. We just bought a new Jeep Liberty Rocky Mountain edition about three weeks ago and love it. I'd hate to have to remove the insignias. LOL

Oooh... Good one... But a Prowler is a Prowler. The Firepower represents a completely different car. Then again, I bet four people could come up with at least four different definitions each of what an Avenger is...

I'd love to see the Prowler come back in its open wheel (probably wrong term) form, with a huge stinkin motor. It was a beautiful car, just needed a bigger motor to make it an all time classic. I always waiver between the Viper, Prowler, and Cuda in the hypothetical question, If any car was given to you what would it be?, well I usually think Cuda, but if the Prowler had a big V8 or V10 it would be the one.

Bet the Track Rated is for the Grand Cherokee SRT-8.

The one problem with the Prowler was a rock-hard suspension - you felt EVERY part of the road. There didn't seem to be ANY damping. The engine was not bad...it was a light car and even if it wasn't a rocket, it was still pretty quick. If you want to go fast, you get a Corvette or a Viper or an SRT-4; the Prowler was more of an experience (like the SSR vs the Vette).

While standing in line at Ralphs, I took one of the Auto Trader magazine and seen the prices of the Prowler are still near there MSRp prices, even out of production. The car was a classic hit and still retains value long after the end run.

Congrats to Chrysler....not many autos retain value like that long after a short production run.
