Innovative Spring Mechanism Offers Same Functionality Found in Newer 4-Door JKs Making Opening and Closing the Soft Top an Easy, One-Person Job
Spring assisted opening and closing is already a feature found on the 2013-2014 Wranglers from the factory; Rugged Ridge’s new retrofit kit brings the same convenience to owners of older Jeeps. Designed to work with Jeep’s factory frame components, the new JK Soft Top Spring Assist kit is relatively easily installed and seamlessly integrates into the soft top as well as other aftermarket factory replacement tops on the market.
Engineered to allow just one person to raise and lower the top, each Rugged Ridge kit features dual spring arms and a quick release locking mechanism that keeps the soft top safely locked in the lowered position for open-air driving.
“The spring assist simplifies the process of raising your soft top from a two person job to a do-it-yourself task,” said Alain Eboli, Engineering Manager at Omix-ADA. “In older JKs, the canvas soft top is so heavy it requires the effort of two people – one on each side of the top. Now, with this retrofit kit, owners have the help of spring assist to lift the other side, making the process much less cumbersome.”
The Rugged Ridge Soft Top Spring Assist is backed by Rugged Ridge’s 5-year limited warranty and is available online and through select Jeep and off-road parts/accessories retailers nationwide starting at $191.99.
