First-Of-Its-Kind Design Combines Utility of Roof Rack with Soft Top Convenience

Rugged-Ridge-Exo-Top-Installed-without-gear.jpgSuwanee, Ga. (April 8, 2015) Rugged Ridge® today introduced its all-new Exo-Top™ soft top and roof rack for 2007-2015 Jeep Wrangler JK. The Exo-Top™ is an innovative, industry-first design that combines the joy of top-down driving with the utility of a roof rack, taking convenience, function and style to new levels by enabling Jeep owners to conveniently lower, raise or remove the Jeep’s soft top with ease without having to unload any gear or cargo from the roof rack.

Available now for four door JK Wranglers, and in summer 2015 for two door models, the Rugged Ridge Exo-Top™ features a patent-pending designthat is a direct bolt-on application with no drilling required for installation.


By combining the convenience of a soft top with the utility of a roof rack, the Exo-Top™ allows owners to experience a Jeep to its full potential for camping, off-roading, or as part of any outdoor lifestyle. The Exo-Top™ features an innovative Sun Slider® retractable function, which allows the top to slide back with the release of just two clips, creating an open-top experience for owners without the hassle of getting out of the driver’s seat.


Integrated into the 300-lb. capacity roof rack is an advanced externally suspended soft top design that fastens using a series of Velcro straps along the perimeter bars of the roof rack. The pulling force applied by the Velcro helps to tighten and shape the soft top, and completely eliminates the need to unload any gear or cargo from the roof rack in order toconveniently lower, raise or remove the Jeep’s soft top.

The Exo-Top™ is also compatible with most standard rack attachments and accessories in the industry, enabling Jeep owners to utilize the Exo-Top™ to safely haul any type of gear or equipment for outdoor adventures, including bicycles, skis, snowboards and kayaks.

“What’s great about the Exo-Top™ is the freedom and versatility it gives Jeep owners,” said Patrick Bennett, Product Development Manager at Omix-ADA. “By combining the soft top and roof rack, the Exo-Top™ allows Wrangler owners to spend more time enjoying their Jeep in any setting rather deal with a cumbersome soft top and roof rack that were never designed to work together.”

The Rugged Ridge Exo-Top™ is available online now for four door JK Wrangler applications at an MSRP of $1,732.99, and will be available for two door JK Wrangler models in summer 2015 at an MSRP of $1,599.99.

The Exo-Top™ can be seen in action on a JK Wrangler on the Rugged Ridge YouTube Channel.
