Hardtop Jeep Wranglers Scarce in U.S.

Jeep Wrangler Hard topSupply difficulties are causing Jeep dealerships to have difficulties maintaining their stock of hardtop Wranglers, and the time may be right for buyers to consider going to the fabric-top option instead.

The manufacturer of the hard plastic top pieces filed for bankruptcy, and Jeep has been having difficulties finding a new company to provide the parts needed. Instead, the company is asking dealers to stock up on soft-top models.

This expansion of supply could work to a buyer's favor if they live anywhere north of the Mason-Dixon line, especially if they don't mind a little cold weather. Buyers in Northern states generally opt for the enclosed cabin, and someone who wants a versatile off-road vehicle will be more likely to find a bargain.

The same holds true in warmer locales as well, because of the number of soft-tops that will now be on lots. Many buyers look for the hardtop-optioned vehicles, and dealers may worry about their ability to move stock.
