Can you elaborate on the new modular hard top?--things you like and don't like about it?

Thanks,
Steve

I Love it so easy to remove but the back section is a little heavy. I love the front sections. I can take em off (in about 2-3 minutes) and go with just the back on and still get the topless feal. I think this is going to be after marketed soon buy some of the other companies and youll see some on the older jeep models.

Do you also have a soft top?--if not, do you plan on adding one? (or if you do have one, do you regret buying it?). I live in Minnesota so I'm almost certain I'd get the hard top for fall/winter use (though there are many Jeep owners around here who don't), and I've assumed I'd want a soft top for summers so I was just curious what your impression is.

Thanks,
Steve

Maybe because California has some of the best wheeling grounds in the US! A two wheel drive wrangler should be a sin, shame on you for showing jeep they can sell one of the best stock built offroad machines as a grocery getter. Sorry I had to rant, enjoy the jeep. I am sure it will be a fun road machine.

I do plan to get a soft top in the future but one thing at a time for now. But I also and kinda curious how the soft top for the 4 door will be seeing how it will be alot longer. Im afraid it will be even noisier than the 2 dr

is the 2wd an option? or is it an upgrade to go to 4wd?

a jeep w/o 4wd just doesn't seem logical

And while the drivetrain on the Vision is front wheel drive the engine is mounted
north to south just like in the JK instead of east and west like most front wheel drives.

So Jeep starts with a car engine and returns to a car engine. And along the way other car engines were used like the Buick 225 V6. Gasp. Another V6. And even the old 4.2 liter straight six came from an engine in the Rambler. Another car!

I test drove one of these a few weeks ago and fell in love with it! However they were jacking up the prices with a "surcharge" of $2K-$3K and they came to me with a RIDICULOUS monthly payment, so I stood up and walked away. It was hard to do, let me tell you!! I work for a company where I get 1% below what the dealership gets cars for, and they weren't offering that to me either, so to me, it was just dumb to buy one when in a few months, these things would be offered to me, so I waited. I loved every inch of the 4 door, and the hard top was so easy to take off!! (Well at least the front 2 pieces) and they fit nicely in the back of the Jeep. Two thumbs up for me, I'm in love!!

My Rubicon only has about 15,000 miles on it and is in mint condition, but they offered me too low of a trade in, also....probably doesn't help that I'm a girl....

I will get that Jeep.........at some point.....

you should see how many lifted trucks out here are 2WD. about 90% of them. i see 2WD lifted cherokees all the time. the cool thing in high school around here is to have a lifted 2WD truck that never see dirt in its life. thats california for ya.

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...
