Jeep Wranglers have been popular for decades, and something that makes this model unique is its soft top option.
While the soft top isn’t necessarily for every Jeep owner, you may be wondering if it’s right for you. Here, we’ll take a look at some of the soft top’s pros and cons to help you decide for yourself.
- Easy removal. On a nice day, it’s much easier to remove a soft top from your Wrangler than a hard top. In just a couple of minutes, you can be ready for a bit of fresh air and sunshine on your face.
- Affordable. Wrangler soft tops are relatively affordable to replace or repair should you find a tear or hole.
- Easy storage. Wrangler soft tops can be folded away quickly and do not take up much room when not in use.
- Ideal for warm areas. Those who live in warmer climates will enjoy the soft top’s thinner material, which makes for a cooler ride.
- Less stamina. Soft tops are prone to wearing out much faster than hard tops. While they are cheaper to replace, you’ll almost certainly have to replace a soft top more often.
- Not ideal for cooler climates. Soft tops are thin, so using one in a climate that’s cold most of the year may not be the best option.
- Noisy driving. The thinner material means that more road noise can make its way into your cabin and disrupt your peaceful drive.
- Less security. If you find yourself in an accident, a Wrangler soft top will provide less protection than a hard top.
Identifying your needs can help you decide whether a soft top is right for you. If you can’t decide, you can even purchase both and interchange your options.
