The soft top has been redesigned for 2010. Instead of the area over the doors having the "drip-rail-retainer" which tucks under the door surround, there is a cable in its place. This configuration is similar to other convertible soft tops.

The main advantage (as I see it) is easier use of the sunrider- no need to get out and tuck/untuck the passenger side drip rail retainers.

I will put up some comparison pix of the two tops later. You can tell them apart from a mile away.

And as someone always says, "Does it leak?" We shall see!

Well i can see that I'm already affected with the sunrider top change and the soft top storage bag since I have the dual top option. Uconnect also sucks as standard now and the wife may/may not have appreciated the mirrored sunvisors. Oh well....

Cool pics Dubya thanks

So you work for Jeep?

I'm wondering what the deal is with the stickers on the tires/rims, they all line up, and the rubi tires have the Giant yellow decal vs the little red one lol
