2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Soft Top Unboxing | Edmunds

Edmunds gives you an idea of what you get if you equip your 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with the dual-top option. Director of Vehicle Testing Dan Edmunds opens up the back of the Jeep, unloads the huge box there and shares what he discovers inside.

Q: Why would I want the 2018 Jeep Wrangler dual-top option?
A: The dual-top option is not for everyone, but it does offer increased flexibility. You can run fully enclosed in the winter with a wiper and rear defroster or be ready for top-down action with rain protection the rest of the year.

Q: How do I get the second 2018 Jeep Wrangler top home from the dealer?
A: The hardtop comes installed, and the soft top comes in a box in a cargo hold. But the box is so big that the back seat comes folded down to accommodate it. Your five-passenger Jeep will only hold two people until you drive home from the dealer and unload the box.

Q: Where do I store the second 2018 Jeep Wrangler top when I'm not using it?
A: That's why this option is not for everybody. You'll see the size of the box as we remove it from the Jeep in this video, and that's the amount of space you'll need to provide. You need a garage with some extra space. This is not an apartment dweller's option.

Q: How long does it take to change from one 2018 Jeep Wrangler top to the other?
A: We get into that and demonstrate the entire process in another video that follows this one. Check out our Jeep top-swap video on the Edmunds YouTube channel here: https://youtu.be/bVOBaJF1xyA.
