I just had to say that I l ove the My Sky removeable top for the Jeep Renegade. It keeps with the Jeep heritage of the Wrangler. I remember driving around in my mom's Wrangler with no doors or roof on it. This reminds me of that.

It is an optional feature, but for me it is a necessity. There are going to be some awesome summer days driving around with that top open.

but will you be getting My SKY bare bones, manually operated and removable, or luxuriously power operated?

I don't think that the My Sky roof comes with an automatic system. I'm pretty sure that you have to take out the panels manually. It's a Jeep, not a convertible. It is one of the coolest features of the Renegade IMO though.

The 2015 Jeep Renegade will have two available “My Sky” open-air roof systems. The basic MY Sky roof system has two manually removable roof segments that can be stored in the back. These roof panels are made out of a honeycomb/fiberglass/polyurethane compound which makes the panels strong and lightweight. The second My Sky system has a power tilt and slide option.

Ah lovely, I was just looking for this :D

I'm still finding the MySKY a little funny to be honest. The auto slide and tilt will open the system but you do will have to get out and manually store them in the boot if you want a fully open roof. It seems like you can slide one back for a traditional sunroof however...

Seeing their demonstration video on how to remove it will be interesting. How long could it possibly take to remove and store it?

My Honda Element had a similar concept with the removable roof panel (only one, way in the back. great for passengers and the dog, not for me driving). it was easy to remove and store in a bag in the back. only problem was cargo space was limited with top off. nothing heavy could be placed on top of the glass panel...
really like the manual option for Renegade and will consider trading in my Cherokee Trailhawk for a Renegade Trailhawk after I can compare the two.

I just hope the roof doesn't leak like a sieve like the Wrangler hard tops do.

Good point, that can be a big problem. Seeing how this has the potential to be one of their highest volume vehicles they better make sure that roof leak issue wont happen, it can be a deal breaker, it will be for me.

Any time you have removable panels in the roof there is a leak risk. The Wrangler panels leak so bad that it's one of their highest warranty claims on the vehicle. I just hope they take their time with the engineering on this and get it right before releasing them to the public. There's nothing worse than walking out to your vehicle in the morning and finding water in the floorboard.

My last Wrangler (2012) leaked. My mother's 2004 Grand Cherokee leaked so bad you could literally watch water running out of the glovebox. Lots of Jeeps are leaky sieves. It's one of their downfalls whether it's a "fixed" roof or not.

what would it take for you to trade the Cherokee on the Renegade?
