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 design that 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 to conveniently 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.

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.

Rugged Ridge, a manufacturer of Jeep off-road accessories and suspension kits, today introduced its new inverted drag link for 2007-2014 Jeep JK Wranglers. Specially designed to fix steering geometry issues that plague lifted Jeeps, the new design reduces bump steer and increases ground clearance; keeping vital steering components out of the way from rocks and other obstacles on the trail.
Jeep’s original design has the drag link mounted from the bottom of the passenger side steering knuckle, leaving the drag link especially vulnerable to trail damage. Using Rugged Ridge’s new design, owners drill out the original steering knuckle mounting hole and relocate the new inverted drag link over the top of the knuckle using a connecting sleeve, gaining precious ground clearance.
“With bump steer, the vehicle might need constant direction adjustment whenever driving over a bump. Drivers could be holding the steering wheel straight, but the vehicle could steer to the left or right every time they hit a bump on the trail,” said Alain Eboli, Engineering Manager at Omix-ADA. “By inverting the drag link, this problem can be greatly reduced.”
Rugged Ridge’s Inverted Drag Link is available online and through select Jeep and off-road parts/accessories retailers nationwide.
For more information about the Inverted Drag Link or Rugged Ridge’s complete line of Jeep parts and accessories, or to find an approved retailer, please contact Rugged Ridge at (770) 614-6101 or visit its website at www.RuggedRidge.com.
