Which experience is best for you?

This video is sponsored by our friends at Bestop. Regret not getting your Wrangler with a soft top from the dealership? Head to bestop.com to checkout the endless aftermarket options from the guys who manufacture the OEM product.

One of the best things about owning a Jeep Wrangler is having the option for that open-air feeling when you want it, especially when you’re off-road. Now, with the latest Wrangler JL, dealing with the factory tops is easier than ever before. A soft top comes standard, while either a 3-piece hard top or one-touch power top are optional equipment. In this video, TFL tackles how to handle the most difficult decision when purchasing a Jeep Wrangler: What top is best for me? The team compares the OEM soft top, a sky one-touch power top and a hard top on the new Wrangler JL.

Factory options for a Wrangler top

Depending on how much you’d like to spend, there are a few different options when you spec out a Jeep Wrangler from the factory. A premium Sunrider soft top is available on most models. Prices range from $595 for a black top to $795 for a tan one.

Prices step up a little bit for the Freedom Top 3-piece hard top. A matte black Freedom Top will set you back $1,195 as a standalone option. Getting a color-matched version will cost $2,195 on its own. On top of that, you have a $2,295 option for the dual top group, with both soft and hard tops.

Finally, there’s the sky one-touch power top. It’s arguably the most convenient option, depending on the sort of “top down” experience you want, but it’s also the most costly. Spec this into your brand new Jeep Wrangler, and you’ll be staring down a $3,995 price hike. Still, these options cover a range of needs, and the folks at Bestop also have their own custom Jeep tops beyond those which are available as OEM equipment on the Wrangler.
