For tying down the top when it’s in sunrider mode or all the way down.

The whole lego-esque nature of the jeep is appealing

Just want to thank Quadratec again. I watch the video a while back and re-watched this afternoon before starting the switch over. The whole process only took about 30 minutes, and really only need help to remove hardtop and helped moving Soft-top on to the Jeep easier.

When unboxing our JL soft top, we noticed something, there’s no instructions! We also noticed there were no instructions available online anywhere. So we decided to make this video and hopefully it comes in handy!


Also, if you need a soft top we have the Sailcloth and Twill tops available to order!

I'm assuming that the frame above the doors have to come off before you reinstall the hardtop.

Also, if you don't want to take the time to watch that, you can read through our write up on the install here instead! I hope this is helpful for everyone!

Alex, the link for the written instructions is broken. I get page not forund on your website when I click on it. Do you have another link for it?

Thanks

If anyone has any questions on the install, don't hesitate to ask us!

ok, what did I do wrong? My top is like about an inch away from being able to latch it. I went back over the video and I can’t figure out what I did wrong. I put some muscle into pulling it forward but to no avail I cannot get the front of the premium soft top to latch near front of vehicle.

I haven’t installed my soft top yet but m understanding is you need to install the top on a warm day. Put the soft top in the sun while you install the hardware. The top needs to warmup so it can stretch to fit. The fit will be tight but eventually loosen up. Hope this helps.

Man I don’t know..... but I’ll await some better sunny weather here in Michigan to see if that’s the issue. Thanks! Note though that this install video was shot indoors and he didn’t mention he was installing the top in a 90 degree garage :)

I installed my soft top yesterday here in Wisconsin. It definitely took some pulling and pushing to get the front latched. It wasn't easy. I had left the top in whatever sun we had, while installing the hardware. Maybe it helped. But it doesn't sound as difficult as what you are having. I can say I had plenty of trouble getting the side windows connected in the back corners though, a lot of trouble.
