Silver hardtop

Now that Jeeps come with body matching hardtop. I was wondering if anyone had any photos of an all silver rubicon. Or a black with silver hardtop.
I would think that a silver hardtop would stay the coolest in this summer heat.

I believe the Rubicon and Sport only come with traditional flat black roof and fenders. Only Sahara's and special editions (i.e. Moab) come with color match fenders and hardtop. I am sure you could special order a painted hardtop for a Rubicon.

If you wait a few months word is that the 2012 Rubicons have a color match option.

Has anyone ever tried to install radiant barrier on the inside of the hard top?
I am thinking of trying this.

I have Hot Head liners. They work perfect. The head liners are available here. Do a search for the specifics. HTH

Nice HEep, gotta admit though, its a lot of suspension work. Why would you do all that and leave the plastics up front and in the rear?
