3, Dealers ordering highly optioned packages and limited editions, that off road enthusiasts don’t want and not stocking strippers (see 2)

4. People that think Bigger means better, it was the last of the last hardcore off-road vehicles, they tried to cram “luxury” into just to have the removable top. The result are a leaking top, loud, very off road capable vehicle most people don’t truly want to live with on a daily basis.

Summary- People think because they spent near $60k on a loaded out Rubicon/Sahara they’re Getting a convertible Tahoe/Sequoia/Explorer; and find out very quickly; lipstick on a mountain goat does not a luxury vehicle make.
Pretty much Nailed it.
On top of all that it's just not different enough to entice JK owners to trade in.
I'm not trading my paid off one for a $35-$50k new one just because the dash is different and the windshield folds with 4 bolts instead of 16.
